Oh Whale: How To Fold A Card (and keep the white inside!)

Oh Whale: Thanks a Ton card idea with tip for keeping the inside of the card white

Yes, I realize that if you are reading my blog, you probably already know how to fold a card.  But do you ever wish that the inside of your dark layered card was lighter?  Do you always search your stamp table for a white gel pen to write? Here’s a simple trick that will make it oh-so-easy to write inside your cards!

Here’s the trick:

Oh Whale Card Idea for layouts - keep the inside whiteInstead of making your card a dark colored card stock, make your CARD Whisper White, and make only the back LAYER the darker color.  Here are the dimensions I used:

  • Pacific Point background layer: 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″
  • Whisper White card: 4″ x 8″

See how easy it is?  You get a layered effect on the inside of your card, you can write easily with a pen (and read it!) and you can decorate or stamp inside til your heart’s content.

So simple.  Try it!

For these cards I used the stamps from the Oh Whale  stamp set (129132 – see it online) to make two slightly different versions of this card.  Each one is punny (pun + funny) but they each showcase a different one of the Cute Clips Elements shaped paperclips (see them online – 129939).  Here’s another card idea for the Cute Clips, and here’s another card idea for Oh Whale.

Happy Stamping!
