Make It Monday video tutorial: Bringing the Inside Out...

Good morning. I hope you are all having a bright, sunny start to your day and are ready to break out your stamps and dies for the next Make It Monday challenge! I've got a new video up for you on "Bringing the Inside Out", which you can see HERE at Nichole's blog.
First, to decorate the outside of the card, I've used the new Make It Market Mini: Garden Guild stamp set.
Then to bring the inside of the card out to the front, a circle is die cut through the front of the card with the Limitless Layers 2.5" Circle die collection. The Scripted stamps and dies were used for the sentiment and a flower from Quilted: Summer added to the inside.
Using this technique of die cutting a peek-a-boo window and decorating the inside with a pop of color allows you to add some much needed color to an otherwise boring inside of the card! And you still get the enjoy the pop of color on the outside as well...two for one! I hope you'll play along in the challenge over at Nichole's blog for your chance to win a Papertrey Ink gift certificate. Thank you for swinging by today! Be sure to check out the video HERE.

I am a BIG fan of yours. Always love your cards and projects. Question though,where did you the mat you are using that has the card measurememts on it? I think that is just so cool of a tool.
