Out of the Box!

Definitely out of the box for me, I felt like making an unexpected card for one of my close friends who turned 40.  Not my best photos….   but I’m sure you get the idea, ps her 5 year old son thinks it’s the best thing since sliced bread, the card is constantly in a state of flux!

Other Supplies:  SBB Cardstock – Bubblegum.  Hot Glue Gun.  Papertrey Ink Flower Dies. Circle Punches.  Hero Arts/Studio Calico – Houndstooth Background. Craft Wire. Assorted Rhinestones.  Glue Gun.

  1. This is incredible Therese! Fabulous – a bit like the exploding box card, but even better – you have done an incredible job, and your friend would have been so chuffed to receive it. Perhaps a tutorial some day??? Hugs, Ann

  2. Girl, you are a good friend! This is awesome!!! I love layers and surprises unexpected elements and this has all three! Plus colorful to boot! xo

  3. Oh, Therese…this is ‘Over the Top Fabulous’!!! I’ll bet your friend is totally in love with it…at least when she can get it back from her 5 year old! I definitely have to create one of these for my granddaughter, just for fun!
    Thanks so much for sharing it with us!

    And…Congrats again on your new Challenge DT spot with Mama Elephant! I’m really happy for you!

  4. Wow, brilliant, therese – I’m not surprised her 5 year is so taken with it. I have made something similar once but I just stuck photographs in it. LOVE all your detailing and fun colours 🙂

  5. OK, this is just too much fun! Totally spectacular way to celebrate the big 4-0 – and yep, I can see my teenagers being fascinated with it too!
