July 2014 Diva Dare - Day 3

Hey everyone! Chaitali here with Day 3 of the 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. 

Here is my card! First the outside...


I kept this very clean, simple and elegant using the newly released Moments Remembered set. The background is an embossing folder that I inked with distress inks before running through my Cuttlebug.

This set has some beautiful sentiments perfect for the inside of a card. I carried over the color scheme on the inside with other stamps from this set and distress inks and also added a sentiment from the set. Here is the inside of the card...


If you are wondering what occasion the card is for, its for a friend's engagement! :) And the ear-rings and bracelet are a gift!! I can't wait to package all this up for a beautiful gift to her!

Thanks for checking out my card for the day!!

Now it's YOUR turn!
