PaperTrey Blog Hop - Inside Out

Tonight's PTI blog hop challenge to make a "total package" was a great one for me. I hardly ever decorate the inside of my cards. I guess I'm usually in too much of a hurry! But they look SO nice that I think I might have to make the time more often. :-)

I used the Everyday Blessings set to make the outside panel and for the bottom of the envelope. The sentiment on the outside is from Vintage Picnic Baskets, and the birthday saying on the inside is from the Quilter's Sampler set. I just love being able to combine images!

To decorate the inside of my card, I simply copied the style of the front by matting a piece of cream cardstock on black, and then I added a little extra strip that I had cut off of my stamped front panel. Here's the card front alone...

Thanks so much for stopping by, and happy hopping!!

Blessings!

Tricia
