Into the Box

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

This card features the Into the Box Technique. I stamped the Creative Expressions Mini Stamp onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I decided how much of the car I wanted inside the box and placed the Spellbinders Labels 25 die in the appropriate place. I drew around the inside of the die with a pencil, avoiding the stamped image. I cut around the section of the car that was on the inside of the pencil line plus a few mm more. I seated the die back in place with the cut part of the car over the die on the non-cutting edge side. I secured with removable tape and ran through the Grand Calibur

I popped a decorative paper left over from the card in the April 13th post behind the aperure.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Mini using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics and inked through the die with Black Soot Distress Ink.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Tim Holtz Idea-ology piece from my stash and piercing around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
