July 2014 Diva Dare ~ Day 1

Inside Out - July Diva Dare

Welcome to July's Diva Dare!  This month's dare is entitled Inside Out.    

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 am totally smitten with this fabulous flower image from the newly released Happy Place. Adore the butterfly image as well and so glad there is a matching Happy Doodles die set. Pulled out some old SEI paper, and kept things on the bold side with all the black.  Added a touch of colour on the flower and butterfly to pull in the background.


For the inside of my card, I carried over the flower image and added a sentiment.  In hindsight, I should have added a black mat and a small strip of the SEI paper from the front along the bottom to ground the flower a bit.  However, after having just finished participating in a 420 kid VBS last week, I was lucky to find my way to my craft room LOL!  Needless to say I was wiped out and not firing on all pistons when I created the inside of this card!  My apologies!
   


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.
