Craft Tip Tuesday


Welcome, everyone! Lisa from In The Crafting Cave sharing a crafty tip with you today. Sometimes we are in a hurry and we just don't have time to decorate the inside of our cards, right? Well, no worries, I have a quick and easy solution to that problem and no extra paper needed for this one.
But first I'm going to share my project with you. Remember, everything is about being in a hurry today. So I kept this card simple.

Here's what I made for you.
 Layering Fancy Frame die-cut kraft and green cardstock with Fancy Frame die-cut papers from the
Anchors Aweigh 6 x 6 Paper Pad with this simple image and sentiment from
the Just Bugcause Stamp and Die Bundle makes everything simple.



 Now for the inside of the card base. I always do this first and I will tell you why shortly.
You have your card base cut (4.25" x 5.5") and the fold scored, laying the card base flat on your scoreboard you want to score all the way around the card base.


You can see here I scored twice and did a cross pattern at the corners.
You don't have to do that you can stop short and square the corners.

Be sure to fold so that the embossed scores are inside the card base.
This is why I do this first, see those beautiful straight lines you have now.
Lining your cardstock on the front of your card is super easy now and it will cover
the lines.




Here's the products I've used.
