Elzybells Challenge 18 - Inside Out

I apologise in advance but I think this post is going to be a long one! The challenge over at Elzybells this fortnight has been set by the one and only Elizabeth and it is called inside out. You need to co-ordinate the inside of your card with the outside and don't forget the envelope too! So I have stamped the dog and spoon from the Party Pup set and coloured him in with Copics, cut out and added to base with 3d foam pads. The base has been made by layering up turquoise Core'dinations CS on to a white card blank and wrapping ribbon around the centre. Message {from the same set} stamped at the bottom.

For the inside of the card I have stamped the greeting {again from the Party Pup set} on to white CS then mounted to more of the turquoise CS and added a strip of brown Bazzill Bling accross the middle before adding the sentiment layer on top. The cake from the set has been stamped at the bottom and coloured with Copics.

For the front of the envelope I have stamped the cake again but this time inside one of the postage frames from the Faux Postage set and again coloured with Copics. For the back of the envelope I have simply added one of the sentiments from the same set as I think it is so cute!!

Hmmm ... that was a long post, sorry! Check out Elizabeth's blog for details on how you can enter the challenge and see all the other DT members cards as well but links to their individual blogs are on my sidebar!

STAMPS: Elzybells Art Stamps. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black. CS: Craftwork Cards, Core'dinations, Bazzill Bling. ACCESSORIES: Ribbon by Anitas, Copic markers.
