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!

Images/Sentiment: North Coast Creations Warm My Heart stamped with Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers

Papers: Recollections (Black, Kraft, and 110# White) and Stampin' UP! (Taken with Teal) Card Stock... and a REAL CARDBOARD BOX!

Embellishments: Paper Studio Die Cut Doily and Stampin' UP! Brads


  1. Absolutely Fabulous!!!! Love the way you did the corrugated on this and the fun cups.

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

  3. Awesome textured background for these two sweet cups of coffee!!
