These fold back cards are THE easiest cards to make and they give you so much room to be creative in- you have the front AND the inside of the card to decorate. For this one I used a piece of A4 cardstock folded to A5 the cut down to just under 6" square. I folded the front of the card back on itself and rounded the corners on the back of the card. I used Paper Cellar 6x6 monochromatic papers to cover the inside back and the folded back front of the card. I adhered the papers flush with the edges of the card so that no matting & layering was required- simples!
I did add a smaller, thinner panel to the folded back section because I wanted to add ribbon & a bow- difficult to do when the paper is applied flush- and it was adhered with foam tape. The shaped panel cut from black textured cardstock and patterned paper was adhered to the front with more foam tape. A layered circle holds a nail polish bottle, a hot pink lipstick cut from black dotted mirri, holographic silver card and hot pink mirri card and the 'Glam' sentiment . Teeny punched flowers and a Prima bloom completes the front of the card.
The inside back of the card was decorated with another shaped panel embellished with more punched flowers and leaves, and the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment, all adhered flat.
