Inside and out...

A post two days running!!! I haven't managed a Dare for sooooooooooooooooo long 'coz of Christmas and my new job, but Gillian's dare was too tempting!!!

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, foldout, 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 inside as 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 :)


Gosh aren't children rude?!!!!I had made DD2 a card for Christmas already but when she saw it she said "Mum, What were you thinking!!!??!! That is horrible!"


Grrrrrrrrrhhhh - 36 hours on the naughty chair for her!!

So I made her this card instead - she lurrves Jo Kill's cards(don't we all) so this card is 100% inspired by Jo. I didn't even use my sewing machine! Unfortunately I don't yet have any Pink petticoat downloads so had to use a bit of basic grey instead. If she doesn't like this I am going to put her up for adoption!!! Or maybe just buy her a card instead!

I added a little Christmas tree inside as well.

Love it, the ribbon and tag are fab!

Farmersgirl said...

That is a fabulous card and I'm sure she will love it. Our children are our most honest critics. I always trust my DS2 on what I am wearing, if he approves then it is cool. Unfortunately he has now left home and DS1 and DH are both 'style-blind' lol
