PTI Blog Hop - A Total Package

It's time for another PTI blog hop! Here's this month's challenge: A Total Package. Make whatever kind of card you want and step it up a notch by decorating the inside, back, envelope, ect. besides just the card front. I often stamp something smaller inside my cards to coordinate with the front, but I decided to really go for it with this challenge and do the front, inside & back.
I started with Hibiscus Burst as my card base (cutting the long way to make the card open at the bottom). I cut two pieces of Kraft cardstock at 4"x5.25" and stamped them both with the large background stamp from Simple Valentine using Versamark ink. I also stamped the card back using Versamark, starting about 1/3 of the way up the back. I than stamped the border image with Versamark under my background stamping and the "made by" stamp below that in black.

For my card front, I used the dotted heart from Simple Valentine and stamped it with Fresh Snow on Hibiscus Burst cs to make a flower & cut out. I stamped once on Pure Poppy cs and cut out. I glued the red heart to the middle of my flower and adhered a rhinestone. I used the large stem from Wishing You and stamped in New Leaf. I also stamped a sentiment from Simple Valentine in black and adhered my flower on top the stem.

For the inside, I repeatedly stamped the small stem bunch from Wishing You across the bottom. I topped the stems with flower hearts using hearts from Simple Valentine. The inside sentiment is from Everyday Button Bits, stamped in black.
This challenge was a lot of fun! Can't wait to check out what everyone else did, thanks for stopping!

Hugs- Kelly
