Hi all, AJ here to share my Outside the Box card! I so love this idea, since I often tend to use my own layouts repeatedly over and over. And, for my inspiration piece today, I chose my Love the Earth card that was originally shown in the May 2009 issue of CardMaker.
Since we are heading towards Valentine’s Day, I figured I could recreate it with new colors and theme.
I stamped “love” randomly all over the patterned paper in coordinating ink before adhering the patterned paper to the card front. I die-cut and embossed the pink scalloped layer, and the white circle. The heart and circle outline image fit perfectly into my circle die cut. After I secured the die cuts to the card with 3-D Foam Squares, I added a small touch of Stickles glitter glue to my hearts.
I hope this inspires you to pull out your older CardMaker issues and create!
