Try Something New with Boxes

It's Tuesday... time to try something new. I hope I'm telling the truth when I say that I've never used a cardboard box for my card front. Suffice it to say I don't remember ever doing so.

I actually got the idea to do this when I was perusing the SCS Gallery one day last week. A card (click HERE) really grabbed my attention... and the cardboard in particular is what I was drawn to. So I decided to give it a try.

It was fun! I tore off the top layer of the corrugated cardboard not worrying about getting a clean look, but leaving it rather rugged on purpose.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Your idea turned out perfectly. It reminds me of the drink sleeves on a coffee. That image is great!
