Over The Moon Monday - Out of the Box
I want to share with you today an Out of The Box card. Although in this case it's an "out of the oval" card. Here is the card:
My Paper Moon stamp #276L-10 (Make a Joyful Noise). Here are the details for the card construction.
I stamped the image onto green cardstock, using black dye ink. I decided how much of the image I wanted to stick "out of the box", then used a nestability oval die to cut it out. In this case I didn't want a lot to hang over. If I had wanted a lot to hang over, I would have chosen a smaller oval, but I wanted the words to be on the green cardstock.
I stamped the image again onto white cardstock, colored it in with markers and a white gel pen, then cut it out. I adhered it over the image that was stamped on the green cardstock. Notice how some of it hangs over the edge?
I covered my base cardstock with blue patterned paper that coordinated with the colors I had chosen for the image. I adhered a blue ribbon, the attached my out of the box image on top.
I had colored the bird on the left birdhouse blue, but when I put it against the blue background, it faded away, so I recolored it red. I added a little bling with some glitter on the flower centers.
I was pleased with the results.
I will have new images coming out sometime this week or next at My Paper Moon, so be sure to look for them.
Have a great week!
