Question Inside Cards Question

Just wondered...those who use several brads, snaps, and eyelets on cards...do you cover the inside of the card with another piece of paper so nothing shows or do you just leave it? TIA!

I usually make sure that I do what I need to so they DON'T show through..

I either use another piece of paper on the inside so nothing shows or I just use the brads on my layers, then attach the layers to the card. HTH!!

I don't like them to show. Just use them on my layers.

I normally try to keep the brads/eyelets/ribbon/whatever off of the card base and put them on a layer so that they don't show through. But if it has to go on the cardbase then I don't cover it up. I think it looks better with the embellishment showing through rather than have a piece of paper covering it up.

I agree with Curtis, and do exactly the same as he mentions.

I actually just did a card where the fiber and eyelet showed thru the inside front. I didnt like the way it showed so I tool another piece of same color c/s and used tacky tape (the red kind) to put over it the same length of the card and the width..it looked alot of better, because before it didnt look finished to me..

I never attach anything to the card base, only layers.

Always put them on layers and then attach to the card. Don't want anything to *show* on the inside.

I also attach to layers. I sometimes run a fiber over the entire card, but I never let brads or eyelets show through. I sometimes like the fiber on the inside as well as the outside- I also only ever do this if I've tied the ribbon or yarn... wouldn't want to leave taped edges! yuk!
