Default F4A8 Out of the box and embossed! {16 April 2010}

Hey hey! It's Friday once again and time for the Free For All challenge...this weeks challenge to you is to make a card using the out of the box technique and embossing...they have a fun new tutorial here on SCS to do this technique using the nestabilities, so I thought this might be a fun challenge for this week!

Here is a link to the out of the box tutorial using Nestabilities.



Here is my card

I've been doing a bit of this recently, one of the recent ODBD birds is perfect. I'll try to find another image to use today . Thanks, Silvia, I love how this looks. Love the way you used the ribbon on your card.

Default I'm workin' on it

I've wanted to try this also, but it's harder than it looks (not that it looks easy!) I've tried a giraffe and a dragon, but I think I'm having trouble knowing where to cut near those lines. I cut a tad too much off on the giraffe. Sabrina, I'll try the pheasant next as yours looks great. Great challenge. I hope to get a card made with at least one of these and will post later.

You could try Lynn's tutorial here, which is where I first learned how to do it: http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...hlight=cutting

I think, although I've never analysed it, that I've found you need to cut a little bit further than the line, to get the die to slide in as far as you want. But it doesn't sound as if that's your problem. Hope you succeed .

Well girls, I hope this qualifies, I've made my bouquet out of the box and have embossed the edges of my nesties layer but it's a little hard to see.

Yikes, I've always wanted to know how to do this. Thanks Silvia. The tutorial was great. I think I just may have to come back later.

Default Out of the box giraffe

Wow! I uploaded a card for a challenge on the day OF the challenge! LOL I decided to use the giraffe image as my cutting mistakes are too obvious (I hope). What do you think? I think I've figured it out now. I'll make more of these now that I've practiced on this one.
