I am the hostess of today’s Timeless Tuesday Challenge. I love the Out of the Box technique and use it often. I just like the look. So that’s today’s challenge. Create a card with the Out of the Box Technique.

For my sample I stamped the raspberries from the gorgeous Berry Sweet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah Solar white cardstock. It was cut out with a Classic Circle Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers (Berries: RV11, RV17, RV19, R39 and G21   Leaves: YG11, YG13, YG17   Flowers: E50, E51, E39) The circle was sponged with Antique Linen and a bit of Vintage Photo Distress ink before it was first adhered on a Kraft cardstock circle. A border was sewn around the image before the layers were adhered to a  slightly bigger white circle. All layers were adhered to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the biggest Picot Edge Circle Die.

Three piece of MME Lost & Found 2 Blush patterned paper were stitched to a 4 7/16″ x 5″ piece of white cardstock. May Arts Crochet Lace was adhered over the horizontal strip and a piece of white Organdy Ribbon was tied around it. The image layers were adhered over the ribbon with dimensionals, the ribbon was threaded through the Tear drop circle border and tied into a bow. A Basic Grey button was tied over it with Linen thread.

A sentiment of the set was stamped in Tuxedo Black on a small white cardstock circle. The circle was sponged like the image circle and adhered to the upper left of the bigger circle. Three Baby Bling pearls were adhered underneath the sentiment as well as more pearls on the top left and bottom right corner. Two pieces of a Finesse Pearl Swirl were adhered to the upper right and lower left of the image.


The inside of the card is pretty simple. Just another piece of white cardstock with some patterned paper strips of the paper used on the front.
