In and Out Cards + GIVEAWAY

Hello! Today I am sharing how to create “in and out cards”… tri-fold cards with images that show on the inside and outside. They are fun to make!

Today’s technique is nearly impossible to explain in text, so please check out the video to see how to make each of these cards.

I was really excited about the birthday images in the Pretty Pink Posh Birthday Friends Stamp Set (SSS | PPP) because they look just like my little Lila and her friend Sophie. I stamped, colored and cut out (right up against the edge of the stamping) the little girl images. I then used the coordinating dies to cut the windows on the front of the card.

The images are added inside of the card with foam adhesive. I also stamped another sentiment – this time from the Pretty Pink Posh Everyday Greetings Stamps (SSS |PPP).

Since the card is a tri-fold design, the inside flap opens up an reveal an area to write your personal message.

My next in-and-out card features the new Pretty Pink Posh Hummingbird Thanks Stamp Set (SSS | PPP) and a sentiment from the Pretty Pink Posh Love Sentiments Stamp Set (SSS | PPP). I did the same technique using the stamps and coordinating dies as I did on the last example. I really like how this technique offers dimension and die cut windows – two of my favorite things!

On the inside flap, we have the birds added with foam adhesive, and a sentiment from the Pretty Pink Posh Thoughtful Greetings Stamp Set (SSS | PPP).

And again, the inside flap opens for an area to write a message inside.

The new Pretty Pink Posh Pretty Petunias Stamp Set (SSS |PPP) is beautiful and easy to color. It also works great for this in-and-out card design. The sentiment is also from the Pretty Pink Posh Love Sentiments Stamp Set (SSS | PPP).

On the inside flap, I stamped “always” from the same Pretty Pink Posh Love Sentiments Stamp Set (SSS | PPP). Oh – and I added tiny white dot details to the flower with my White Gelly Roll Pen.

My next example is a bit more involved, but worth the effort! I again used the Pretty Pink Posh Pretty Petunias Stamp Set (SSS |PPP) but this time with colored ink for a softer look. I adhered a Pretty Pink Posh Hello Friend Die (SSS | PPP) die cut to the front of the card. It looks like it is floating over the flowers!

On the inside flap, I stamped a greeting from the Pretty Pink Posh Thoughtful Greetings Stamp Set (SSS | PPP).

This card also has a tri-fold design, but opens differently. Works just as well! You could do this in-and-out technique with any stamps and coordinating dies.

If you want to try a super fast in-and-out card design, try this next one! I stamped a bird from the Pretty Pink Posh Hummingbird Thanks Stamp Set (SSS | PPP) on the front of a card and in the same spot on the inside. I die cut the bird on the front and the one on the inside shows through! This is much faster than cutting out the images like I did on the cards above. (However, I prefer the look of the popped-up images.)

Since I kept the images towards the bottom of the inside of the card, there is room to write a message above it. Therefore, I didn’t do the tri-fold design this time.


I am participating in a blog hop celebrating the 4th birthday of Pretty Pink Posh! I have loved watching Paulina’s company grow. Be sure to head to their blog for gifts and sales!

  1. I adore the thoughtful greeting stamp and die set with the hummingbirds! Thanks for all of your wonderful videos and helpful ideas!

  2. Again, your cards are amazing! I don’t think you’ve ever done anything I didn’t like just stuff I can’t do like when you do stuff with a die cutter like all of these cards. I’m thinking that I could do these cards if I fussy cut the stamped images like you did with the die cutter. It might be hard to do but maybe I could try it.
    What are my faves in this release? Quite a few actually. I’m mad that I missed the hop. I thought I had more time to do it. Oh well, next time. I like the birthday kids and I know I could use them a lot. I am in love with hummingbirds and I don’t have stamps like that. PBS had an hour special on hummingbirds and it was amazing! They remind me of me, small but mighty. My dad used to have a hummingbird feeder in our yard but we had very few come to it. I loved to watch the few that came. I plant the butterfly and hummingbird flower in the spring but we never got even one hummingbird come to them and very, very few butterflies.
    Thanks for showing us your beautiful cards and for giving us the chance to win something. I can’t wait to use my hummingbird stamps1

  3. The sentiments sets featured here are really wonderful – so many sweet and useful phrases. Thanks for the inspirations!

  4. Love those cute hummingbirds!! Can’t wait til spring to get a chance to see them again. I really want to get one of the Misti tools.

  5. Everything is just simply gorgeous but I think I would go with the sentiment sets. I just love the font and the sentiments work so well together. Love these cards they are beautiful. Thank you.

  6. You never cease to amaze me with your cool techniques! I could sit by your blog and craft daily for a year and never get to all the projects I have bookmerked. lol, but true!! Love this creative use of the negative die cut!
    As for favorites, I have a 3 way tie… the hummingbirds, petunias and heart shaker. : )

  7. I’d love the pretty petunias set to use for thank you notes for my daughter. But I do love the hummingbirds too.

  8. LOVE the PPP Hummingbirds and Petunias. I tried to do my duty to boost the economy and purchase them, but you made them so popular they are sold out all over. Great job on your part! My class will have to wait for them. Would love to win them…but we all know how that goes. LOL!!! THANKS for all you do.

  20. What brilliant cards and a great technique! I love the two little girls especially as I have 3 granddaughters and hadn’t found many stamps and die sets suitable for their age groups (2 are 6 and 1 is 9). I’ve tried buying them but SSS is out of stock. I also wanted the little boy equivalent for my grandson aged 4! Please keep up your amazing tutorials- I’ve learnt so much. Thank you for your unstinting help. Kind regards. Loraine
