I found a card in my stash of ideas that I was just dying to try, and the Make a Medallion stamp set seemed just perfect for this technique. It's a new stamp set available from Sale-A-Bration. I was in the mood to make something green. I guess it's the Irish in me that inspired the card. I had the good fortune to go to Ireland last fall with my sisters and an aunt. We loved the beautiful green countryside and exploring villages, castles and villas. We also enjoyed shopping for sweaters, woolens, lace and Celtic jewelry. The whole card just tied it all together for me.
I stamped everything in Emerald Envy with a touch of Basic Black.
The double front card design is what I really wanted to make. The card originated from a post by Susan Campfield here. I stamped a simple sentiment for a friend, with thanks inside, then left the inside page blank for a note. Trimmed it with a little Festive Birthday DSP.
Below you can see a side view with the double front.
I plan to share the card on the Curtain Call Challenge where they are looking for GREEN. SU-Only Challenge #169 is Celebrating GREEN, too, and my layout was inspired by the SIP Challenge 89, but I flipped it on it's side and that's what reminded me of the double front layout I'd seen.
