Moxie Fab (from Start to Finish)

I'm loving the Moxie Fab World's latest challenge (details here). The idea is to make a card from start (outside) to finish (inside) and the card should have a cohesive look....like, it makes sense! Why do I never think of THAT?  I guess we should do that more often.....or at least , I should!! Well, I tried it....and boy, it is a lot of work! Because basically I had to make two cards for one...making any sense?
So here's the "start". I cut out the little Label 8 for a "window" and then went from there...

A close-up here...want to move in?

And here's what you see when you open the card....

I love Jane's digital image (Mia and Bosko) from this website Squigglefly. With Mia and Bosko, the card invokes warmth and joy! I kind of like this from Start to finish "exercise"! I think I WILL do this more often ...thank you very much!

Virginia these are both fantastic - LOVE the pretty row of houses. My special card is still on display in my dining room - I look at it every day. Such a wonderful inside and out card!

Love it! The window is just such a suprising, wonderful element.

linda said...

Wow, great job on this card. Having the little window really pulls it even more together...than just using the similar design elements and style. Totally cool!

lovely cards Virginia - so clever how you mixed Mia and Boscho with the stamps!

Karen from MI said...

SO SWEET, Virginia! You AMAZE me with your clever designs, including, "LABELS EIGHT".........that certainly is a popular Nestie shape these days. Love your cut out window that you've incorporated in your design, too. Now I can't get over how you included Mia and Bosco in your design. They fit in PERFECTLY! I LOVE your SWEET cards, Virginia. Love, Karen xoox
