Moxie Fab-Start to Finish Challenge

Do you ever finish the insides of your cards? I have been more and more lately. Cards seem to be more 'finished' when the inside coordinates with the front of the card...and it's a great way to use up some of the scraps from the project.

I made 2 cards for Moxie Fab Start to Finish challenge. The first one doesn't have a recipient in mind yet, but I have a 'wee' tendency towards procrastination so I'm sure it'll come in handy when a birthday whizzes by in the next few months.

The paper is from Basic Grey (Nook and Pantry), label is from K&Co (from a Christmas line painted white), rub on sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly.

The sentiment continues to the inside of the card. And isn't it a perfect sentiment for when you forget a birthday? The large flower is a die cut from Sizzix, small daisy punch is from Marvy.

I just recently bought a Sakura Glue Pen and it was just perfect to use on gluing down the small punches. It's quickly becoming one of my favorite adhesives.
My next card is clean and simple. I kept it simple to let Dolores' (Crafty D's Creations) beautiful felt heart stand out. The label is from K&C0. and I'm not sure who makes the ribbon, I only had a small piece left.
I followed through and left the inside clean and simple as well. The felt hearts are a die cut from Sizzix.
Paper Crafts is celebrating the release of Card Creations Start to Finish and Cath has some wonderful inspiration and fun prizes on the Moxie Fab blog. Pop on over if you have time...I promise you'll be very inspired to finish the insides of your cards.

Both are awesome cards. Love the label that you painted for the CAS card! The felt adds such nice texture. Love the colour combo on your first one!
