An Inside-Out Card - Riley Challenge!


Hi there!   
Today's card is an especially fun one - one I call an Inside-Out card :)  For this week's Riley and Company Challenge, Joy asked us to create a card using a sentiment.

YAY!!  Have you seen the Funny Bones sentiments?  Have mercy, they are hilarious!!   I tell you, when I crack up before I can get the ink to the paper :)  They make me smile and brighten my day - and add in stamping/crafting time, well ... that's a whole vacation right there!


I call this card my 'inside-out' card because the sentiment, which I always add to the inside of my cards, is on the front and the image, which I always add to the outside of my cards, is now on the inside!  Clear as mud, right? :)



Okay, so I'll just show you!  



Here it is!  Using a scrumptious Parisian styled paper from MME, I came up with today's card.   Although I've used a similiar design on my cards before, this is the first time I have used the half moon design and can I just say .... I love it!  It gives the image (sentiment) a whole new look.  On the inside, I have stamped the new retro girl, Ethel.  I'm 'tickled pink' with this card!





We'd love to see what you create this challenge and hope you can ink up your Funny Bones (etc), too!  If you upload your card to a gallery, please use the keyword RILEY0413 as we'd love to see what you create.  And check out what the Riley and Company DT have created as well:  

Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!

  20. Still chuckling over this card. I honeymooned at a vineyard here on Long Isand and hubby and I are collecting our corks. I could make some serious crafty stuff. Love the vintage lady!

  26. Inside out card... I love this idea! I've put sentiments on the outside, but have never had an image on the inside to go with it. Thanks!!

    This is so funny and really hits home for me. I don't drink much and have a small jar of corks that I have saved 'just because' someday I may find something to make with them. Of course, it couldn't be anything too big since there are only about 10 corks...
    Fantastic card!
