In the Box!

 Good morning!  Back again to show you another fun idea for the box in Beyond Baskets 2!  I am having so much fun with this stamp and have some more tutorials using this rectangle that I am finishing up!  The rectangle measures  1 3/8" x  2 7/8" and is perfect for framing up so many sentiments, small scenes and images.  Omit part of the top or bottom outline and add your sentiment of choice to make it even more versatile.
Place the sentiment you want under the box where you want to stamp it, so you know how much of the outline to omit.  Use a marker to go over the outline of the rest of the box.  Be sure the stamp is clean before you start!
Huff on the image with your breath to moisten the ink and stamp on your Pure Luxury White card base.
Add your greeting from Beyond Baskets 2.  I used a Memento Love Letter marker for both the outline and greeting.  I love how just a few of the letters are bolder to give it more style.  The different widths really enhance to the thick and thin lines in your images.
Then stamp in your flakes from Christmas Joy with Gina K. Cherry Red.  Emboss a Spellbinders Matting Basics A frame around it, see how perfectly proportioned those frames are?  Add adhesive rhinestones to the centers and that's it.  Easy peasy!
You can make a ton of these elegant cards in a snap with so few supplies!  The frame adds so much to the design.  Hope you love this idea!  Off to finish another CAS scene for you!
