July 2014 Diva Dare - Day 7

Good morning Verve fans, it is Maureen bringing you Day 7 of the July 2014 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 need some sympathy cards in my stash so I thought I'd make one with some new and old sentiments.  I created a medallion from Peaceful Medallions to act as a frame for the sentiment from  Moments Remembered.  Then I stamped and fussy cut the feather images from this same set and tucked them behind the sentiment that I punched out with a 1 3/8" circle punch. I used some ivory ribbon from the Signature Ribbon Collection to add some softness and some black and  Shine Bright Sequin Mix to finish off the front of the card.  Now, I don't usually stamp or decorate the insides of my cards because I like to use all that space to write! LOL  So this was a good challenge for me.  I decided to use two sentiments from Forever in our Hearts because I liked the way "Forever in our Hearts" went with the "Forever in my Thoughts" on the front.  The same pattern paper and some black stitching help tie the front to the inside.





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.

    I am with you, I don't usually finish the inside of my card until I am ready to give it and know what I want to say, but you did a great job with the inside. TFS
