Inside/Out Card

It is the day after third Wednesday of the month and that means a Ready, Set, Go Challenge Card!  We each had another card to post to our blogs yesterday, so this post was pushed back one day.  The 3 Musketeers (Jeanette, Kelly and me) are back with another challenge this month.  

Kelly came up with our challenge for October. Create an inside out card.    This is what Kelly wrote:  What's That?  Glad you asked.  It is where the inside of your card is now the front and the front is now inside! However you want to interpret that is up to you.  Be creative, use lots of color/ing and try to avoid leaving it 'blank' on the front.   Remember, we're thinking outside the box!  I hope you have fun with the challenge - now get ready, get set ... Go! 

I pondered and pondered about the card for this challenge.  I had an idea to do a shutter card and put a full image on the inside.  I had a stamp class this past week at my local stamp store and we made a card similar to this, with a Christmas ornament on the outside in the circle, and patterned papers on both panels.  I thought I would use one of my favorite Christmas images from Penny Black for the inside image and a simple Ho-Ho-Ho in the circle.  I like how it turned out. 

Sorry for the bad picture but it is a hard card to photograph, as the panels do not lay flat.....  

Both of the green panels fold out to reveal the inside image.

Please be sure to check out the other Ready, Set, Go cards.  Here is a link to Jeanette's and Kelly's blog.  I am sure you will not be disappointed and will see a couple of great cards! I hope Kelly and Jeanette like my card and that you might too!  I am up for the next theme, so be sure to check back to see what we are up to on the 3rd Wednesday in December!

Barb, your card is genious!! This is a terrific fun fold and a great way to showcase the cute Santa claus that would normally adorn the front of your card! See, you fretted and ended up nailing this challenge! Way to go! Or Ready set go? LOL!
