Inside and out!

Hi everyone Gillian here, and it's my turn to dare you all this week.
I dare you to take the design of your card to the inside as well as the outside. Add a little finishing touch to match the theme on the outside, or Surprise the receiver with a flap, fold out, decorated journal block to write on, or one of those pop-out delights....It really adds so much to a card when there is attention to detail on the insideas well as the outside. I know some of you are finished your Christmas cards already so this week it's Any theme, Christmas or not But make the inside count too :)

My card is a variation of one I saw on Rachel B's blog I had a phone call this morning from the head at a local school to see if she could place an order on behalf of some of her staff. The card above was for her sister (who is a friend of mine) Papers are K & Co, snowflake eyelet was set with the Cropodile and the gold snowflake was stamped with Versamark and embossed with a gold sparkly powder.

The next card was part of the order too.

The greeting was printed onto the card and the image was stamped with a black Brilliance inkpad onto acetate and tied to the card using silver cord.

The next two cards were part of the order too :)

Again, the papers are K & Co and the stocking is a Sizzlit die.

The greeting was printed on the pc and the image is decoupaged and glittered.
Yesterday I had some ex collegues come round at lunch time to have a look at some jewellery and I sold quite a bit, I was well chuffed!
This is what I made yesterday morning.
I now need to make two more exploding boxes, two cd clocks and 37 place cards before Monday. Dh is working all weekend so the order will keep me out of mischief :))
