Papertrey Bloghop - The Total Package



During this month's Papertrey release there was a lot of chatter about the interior of cards and how they don't always get the attention they need. This month's challenge is to create a card that has the "total package". So not only to decorate the front, but the inside, the back and the envelope!

I've been fascinated by the easel cards I've been seeing lately and decided to create one! So using the cupcake from the Baby Button Bits set along with some Cosmo Cricket Earth Love papers and some PTI rustic cream cardstock I created one. I followed a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and the card turned out perfectly.

Here's the front, I remembered to stamp on patterned paper, a technique I've also been meaning to try.



And the easel view showing the sentiment from the Signature Greetings set.




And can't forget the back, stamped with a cute little saying and heart. Along with the envelope that is stamped with the dotted swirl from the Baby Button Bits set.



This was such fun to create, I'll definitely be making more!

Hi Rosanne! I couldn't join the blog hop last night due to the time difference, so I am catching up now. Your card is lovely. I can't wait to play with this stamp set. Hopefully it arrives later this week. Thanks for the inspiration!

Mary said...

These are colors I never would have thought of but they sure look beautiful together. I will never look at the inside of a card in the same light after this challenge. Beautiful job.
