Botanical Builder, one layer card

OK so yesterday, I announced I would be back with a very special card today. And I am going to post it right now. I hope you'll notice what's special on it...

Well not only is is a ONE LAYER card (on the outside), but I also managed to use that vine border cut in a way to keep the card intact. You may remember 2 cards I posted a while back where I only used it as a border. You can see those here and here.

Here is another view of today's card:

My little trick... I adhered a piece of Window Sheet to the inside to make the 2 pieces stay "connected".
But then when you open it you'd see this:

And because YOU know how anal I can be about little things... I decided to cover that now with the same color cardstock. And to get the cut in the exact same spot on the "liner", I cut the cardstock 1/8th of an inch smaller than then front and place it inside. Then I slid the edgelit inside and clused the card. Then moved the framelit into place while looking through the leave opening. Once in place, I gently opened the card and used a post-it sticky to secure the framelit in place.

Then I ran it through the BigShot and adhered the 2 pieces to the inside

That gave me the finished and clean look I was after. I know it may not bother others, but I thought the card looked so elegant that it deserved a nice inside as well...
