Here's what I've come up with! Recently Jennifer McGuire posted a video on how to make "inside tunnel" cards and I found the idea so great, I've used her tutorial to make my own! On my first card I've used the gorgeous Fancy Floral 2 die from Pinkfresh Studio. I first embossed a piece of white card stock with this super pretty pink embossing glitter called Taffeta Pink (WS149) then die cut this panel with the Fancy Floral 2 die and attached it to my card front. Since I didn't want to cover up a lot of this beautiful background, I only added a smaller oval piece of patterned paper from the PFS Simple and Sweet collection as well as a chipboard and my sentiment (which comes from the adorable Playful Animal Friends 1 set). For the rest of the card I've used patterned papers and die cuts from the Simple and Sweet collection.

Sorry for the bad photos of the inside of the cards, I couldn't figure out a way to keep the cards open any other way...I asked my son to hold them and he was extremely impatient while I was trying to get the right angle, so I gave up. Sorry for this, I hope you can still see them (and his finger hahaha)! 

On my next card I've used patterned papers from the PFS Simple and Sweet collection as well as some exclusive die cuts and puffy stickers.  

This time I did the embossing on the inside of the card! I've stamped some of the leaves from the Let Your Heart Decide stamp set on a piece of white card stock and embossed them with the gorgeous Primary Bluetiful Regular embossing powder (WH19R). I then attached this piece to my card base and created the card with the help of Jennifer's tutorial. I hope you'll check out her video because the possibilities are endless with this technique and it's so exciting seeing the cards come together! I highly recommend it!

That's it! I hope you've found plenty of inspiration throughout this blog hop! This is your last stop, from here you can head back to the WOW blog post and leave us a comment telling us about how you liked the hop!

Thank you for stopping by today!
Have a wonderful day!
