From the Inside Out

Happy Monday! Hope your week is off to a great start. Yesterday I posted about the new release from Doodle Pantry and today I have another card using another new release image set. This set is called Sombrero Hat. It comes in both outline and colored images. I used the colored images and then blinged it up with some Stickles. But what I did differently on this card was that I created it from the inside out. I normally create the front of a card and often leave the inside blank to finish later. But this time I made a tunnel card so I started with the inside first.


You can see the maracas on the inside and I also added some zig-zag stitching on the inside flap. You can see a close-up of the tunnel:
And finally the outside of the card:

 The sentiment is from Scrapbook Eden and the sombrero is from Doodle Pantry.  I embossed the background with D'vine Swirls. Don't forget the sale at Doodle Pantry until the 3rd. While you are there be sure to check out Laurie's new header. It's totally adorable!

The challenges for this card:
Have a wonderful Tuesday and take care!

I love the technique you used for the inside of the card - I've never seen a tunnel card before. The sentiment and sombrero go perfectly together on the front. What a fun card!

Well, I lost my mind and need to go find it. I really thought I had left a comment on several of your postings. Perhaps it was at a time I could see it, but couldn't leave a comment. I remember this being so cool. I also remember a wood grain technique you used but couldn't find it. I'll have to find Gina K's blog.
