Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop

It has been a long while since I've been able to participate in one of the Papertrey Ink Blog Hops, but tonight I was inspired and I had some extra time! I love it when those two things coincide. :) This month's challenge was to create a card that has the "total package". . .decorating the interior of the card, back of the card or even the envelope.







I don't usually decorate or even stamp in the inside of my cards. I use all that space to write! :) This was a nice challenge for me and what I came up with is totally me! I used my favorite PTI set, Little Lady. I paired it up with some Spellbinders dies and a QuicKutz embossing folder to come up with this. I used the Nested Flower die along with Plain and Scallop Circle Nestabilities to create the flower with Lemon Tart and Bitty Dot Basics paper. The Blush Blossom background piece is embossed using the Polka Dots embossing folder. I stamped part of the sentiment along with a few dots from the "dot" stamp in the set and stamped the other part of the sentiment on the inside of the card. The ladybug's trail leads her from the front of the card to the inside. Since I stamped the front and inside of the card, I had to do the back too! :) I hope you've been as inspired as I have to decorate the inside of your card! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Little Lady (Papertrey Ink); Ink- Blush Blossom, Berry Sorbet (PTI), Onyx Black (Versafine); Paper- Blush Blossom, Bitty Dot Basics, Lemon Tart (PTI); Accessories- Nested Flower die, Plain and Scallop Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Polka Dots embossing folder (QuicKutz), Dazzling Diamonds glitter (SU); Finished card measures 4.25" square
