You'll be surprised at what's inside!

Do you ever decorate the inside of your cards? Today's project by Ellen might inspire you to think about how much fun the inside of cards can be! She started out with an adorable card front featuring the kitty in the mailbox from our  Newton's Happy Mail stamp set! She colored him so sweetly and trimmed out the image using the coordinating Newton's Happy Mail Die Set and then added the image into a pretty distress ink circle.

Then you open the card to find this amazing pop-up scene:

She created an awesome scene using a bunch of different stamp sets! She created hills and grass using our new Land Borders Die Set and a cloudy sky using the new Sky Borders die set! Then she added in the cute kitty holding the umbrella for his ducky friend from the new Newton's Rainy Day Stamp set. She also added in some trees from the Fox Hollow Stamp set and the fun little red bus in the back is from the Newton Dreams of London Stamp set. Then she finished it off with the "Lucky to have you" sentiment over the grass from the Newton's Pot of Gold stamp set! Wow! What a fun way to combine a ton of stamp sets to create a unique scene! It would be so fun to get this in the mail and open it up!
