July Diva Dare

Inside Out - July Diva Dare

This month we're daring you to create a stamped card and continue the design on the inside for a special surprise for the recipient. Simply carry over some portion of the card front design on to the inside of your card. I'm ashamed to say that I very rarely decorate the inside of my card (though I do stamp the envelope!) so this challenge was a good excuse for me to practice! Here's my attempt at coordinating the inside (P.S. Don't close the card until your liquid pearls are dry...don't ask me how I know :)

I'm loving these new Verve floral stamps, designed by Julee. I stamped the flowers from Verve's Happy Place set onto a piece of Natural White cardstock and cut out the shape with the coordinating Happy Doodles die set. I colored in the image using Copics. I added some Raspberry Liquid Pearls to the tops of the flowers and also to the butterfly stamped on the inside of the card. I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch for my design. All edges are distressed and I added a variety of lace, Organdy and daisy chain ribbon as well as twine to the top. The banners are cut out with Verve's Banner Bundle set.

Two ways to win prizes for double the fun!

Win a $40 gift voucher to Verve! Take our Inside Out dare and link up your card to be eligible to win.  Entries must have an element from the front of your card carried over to the inside, be posted 7/14 or later, include at least one Verve product and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 7/31/14.  One participant will be randomly selected to win the gift voucher.  You can enter as many times as you like, but each card needs to be in a separate post.

Win a Verve set of your choice! For another chance to win some new Verve, leave a little comment love on our design team's Inside Out Diva Dare posts!  One lucky commenter will win a Verve stamp set of his or her choice, so be sure to tune in each day!  Comment deadline to be entered in our prize drawing is July 31, 2014.

Winners will be announced on August 1, 2014.

- Go forth and get inky! We DARE you! -

You only need to link 1 image if your post contains pictures of both the front and inside of the card.  If you are linking to a gallery, then include a link to where we can see both the inside and outside of your card.
