There is a challenge over at As You See It to try a new technique this week, so I decided to try one that I have been meaning to try for a while. It is called the Out of the Box Technique, and it is where you have part of your stamped image sticking out of a die cut shape. I used the tutorial at SplitCoast Stampers. This works particularly well with Framelits. I decided to have the little signs from Cheerful Critters extended over an oval.
Stamps: Cheerful Critters, Crazy About You
Ink: StazOn Jet Black, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Coastal Cabana
Paper: Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Whisper White, Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper

I used the Best Year Ever paper and matching ribbon on this card. These are Sale-a-Bration only items, which means that they won’t be available after Tuesday. Be sure to stock up if you love them!
