Papertrey Inside Outside Goodness!

Today is 25th of the month, and thanks to a little reminder from Crystal, a lighter DT load, and a few hours this afternoon to actually stamp.....I get to play along with the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!!!! Yippee!!!


The challenge this month was to do up the inside of your card AND make a matching envie!!! (it's also a Moxie fab challenge that ends tonight-perfect timing!) So fun and so easy to do, I just get lazy and don't finish up the insides of my cards very often.


I used quite a few sets to make this card-turning a new leaf, signature greetings, polka dot basics, and guidelines 2 (Thanks, Crystal. I am returning this soon, I promise! ). I'm also loving this color combo-chocolate, spring moss, aqua mist and a touch of raspberry! My sister is going with this combo for her wedding and this was my warm up card, playing around with them. Now, I need to get designing her invites! Here's how I did the inside.



Since I used a darker cs base, I knew I had to line it with a lighter color. So, I added paper strips in same colors-spring moss, and raspberry fizz and carried over a few of the stamp images I used on the front. I also tied the look together with more stitching-I {heart} my machine!!! I also stamped on the kraft envelope with the same leaf and polka dots from the card. See it below the card in both photos. Here's one more close up of the outside and all the fun extra details-love that ribbon!


It's great to carry design elements from the outside of your card, to the inside, and even to the envelope and it doesn't have to be matchy-matchy-just coordinate and it will still look great! Thanks for stopping by. Can't wait to see all the other fabulous creations tonight!

Hugs, Lisa
