Double-sided card: Simply Said Love from Avery Elle

Chapter: DIY + techniques

A card with a design/message on both sides — front and back, is what I’d attempted to make. All because I love to look at the back too!

Front of the card — “Love so amazing”

Back of the card — “Love so divine”

I chose a woodgrain pattern paper to die cut the word “Love” by Avery Elle, twice. This top folding card measures 5.15″ x 4.15″. Pattern paper was trimmed down from a 12 x 12 sheet to 5.15″ x 7″, a little shorter than the card base then adhered onto the card base. A 300 gsm off-white cardstock was used as the base.

Here’s a summary of the steps:

  • Trim pattern paper to desired size, shorter in length than the card base so as to allow a border at the bottom of the card.
  • Die cut the pattern paper twice. Save the tiny interior parts for later.
  • Woodgrain paper adhered on the card base with both a tape runner and a glue pen for the tight spots.
  • Put down the tiny interior parts with glue pen.
  • Wrote the words with an oil-based marker onto 2 small strips of gold-coloured cardstock. Adhered onto card with white glue.
  • Embellish with foam and fabric heart stickers.

The supplies listed below are the ones I used for this project ⇙
