Out of the Box

It's Monday and that means a CAS Challenge at Splitcoaststampers. This week is a technique called "Out of the Box". Check out my birds tail, it is actually outside of the die cut (you can click on the photo for a better view)...isn't that cool! It took me a few tries but I got a hang of it pretty quickly. There is a great tutorial in the resource section at Splitcoast if you'd like to give it a try!!

I started this card by stamping my bird image from the Nature Walk stamp set in Soft Suede ink. Then I trimmed the tail and ran the Very Vanilla layer through my die cutting machine. I also die cut a Soft Suede mat. Next I stamped the top half of the card using another image from Nature Walk (by far my FAVORITE set in the Spring mini!), stamping the image in Crumb Cake ink twice before inking it up again and lined the bottom half with Elegant Soiree dsp. I finished off my card with a small piece of Victoria Crochet Lace and a beautiful Rosette that I topped with a few small Basic Pearls!

Thanks so much for starting your week out with me & for all of your sweet comments! I read each and every one!!! Have a fabby Monday :)
