Out of the Box


I've been watching Sue Wilson demo this technique, on Create and Craft TV,She stamps her design the cuts out the part that is to be 'out of the box' or out of the nestie, so I decided to have a go for this weeks Less is More Challenge which is Masculine cards, again I rummaged thro' the old stamps and found this little used Vintage car, an ideal image to use for this method. It really has been a strugle to put the card together, I started yesterday and have only just finished.

This is a lovely card Maureen. Strangely I have used this "out of the box" method but with a twist in my card for Less is More.

It doesn't look as if you had a struggle Maureen. It obviously paid off as this is a very smart and attractive card and looks well balanced inspite of not being centred.

This is a smashing card Maureen. Such a great image for a man's card, and using the out of the box method suits this card really well. Jo x

A great card for a man, I like the out of the box technique, have tried it myself and know what you mean about taking time to do it - but it's such a great effect.

I've been watching this too - and I'm very impressed how quickly you put it into practise.

This is a really stylish card - love the monochrome colours - it's great!
