Video: Out of the Box Omission Technique: Tips & Tricks

Hello! Today I'll show you how to do the omission technique with the box image in my Beyond Baskets 2 set to create custom frames for showcasing all your stamp images in a beautiful and interesting way! 

I also demonstrate coloring this clover from my Stately Flowers 7 set, and some tips for how to use your scraps for creating different layouts and other card samples with the box and other Gina K. images.  Please enjoy!

Stamp sets not demonstrated but shown in samples at end of video are Triple Play Holiday and Handmade Botanicals. 

I love omitting part of the box and adding a greeting to the side like I did here.  You could do a single, shorter word on the bottom edge instead if you like.
 You can turn this design either way. :)
