What do you do for the inside of cards?

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to chat a bit about what we all do with the inside of cards. Most of the time I keep it pretty simple and use a coordinating color or pattern paper scrap, a sentiment and stamp the main image in a light gray ink. It works, it's quick and I still feel like the card is 100% done. For some reason I just don't like leaving a blank inside. 

For this card I'm sharing today I decided to adventure out and really focus on the inside and outside of the card.  

For the front I used a lot of the smaller stamps from the Art Impressions Housework stamp set. The bucket, with dust pan and brush are apart of a larger stamp with a fun lady image. But since I wanted to focus on the smaller stamps I masked off the parts I didn't want to use. Then stamped the rest. I also masked the cat so that the paper towels look like they are in the background. I really like this little scene and the images are super easy to color. But what you would put on the inside?

Here is the inside. It looks a lot like the front. I used the same dies and pattern paper, except smaller. The pattern paper is actually die cut from the center of the larger hexagon that I used on the front. That way I maxed the usage of this pattern paper (unfortunately it is a discontinued product from Lawn Fawn). The stamps are from the Loads of Fun stamp set and I used the same Copic marker colors and created a similar style scene. It really didn't take too long to create both and I like the surprise of a fully colored little scene that you see when you open the card. 

Both sets are from Art Impressions and were released last year. They work so well together and it was just fun to create a housework chore themed card with an adorable cat and dog! So, whether you keep the inside blank, add a bit of coordinating elements or go all out with a fully colored scene, I hope you found some inspiration here today.
