A Farewell Tour of the 2017-2019 In Colors: Berry Burst Healing Hugs Floating Frame Card Part 2

Good Morning crafty people! You may of noticed that I changed the title of my blog. While visiting my team leader when in Utah earlier this month, she asked us to name our teams and Out of the Box Stamping was a name I had been throwing around in my head for a little while. When I told her she thought it was perfect so here is my new blog title!
     Yesterday I showed a card I made using the Floating Frame or Press 'n Seal technique. Today I am sharing the middle section of the card I did as it's own card. I did a couple of extra pieces to it to help fill it out. I still continued with my Farewell Tour of the retiring In Colors by using Berry Burst. Here is my card.....

Hi crafty people! Well, it's Monday again.....I feel like I blinked and the weekend was over. I did, after several months, finally get my ceiling fan up in my craft room.

Happy weekend crafters! Any big plans for you? I'm going to try and clean out my car. I like to take the shop vac and a toothbrush and clean around all the crevices in the car that collect dirt. This is the best way I have found to really get the car clean. As I said earlier this week I am doing a Farewell Tour for the 2017-2019 In Colors with my focus being on Lemon Lime Twist this week. Well this past Thursday the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock has sold out. I knew this was an extremely popular color which is why I did it first. For today's card I used just a tiny piece of the cardstock knowing that it is now gone. Here is my card.....

     I wanted this card to be a little more simple so I only used 4 palm leaves, 2 out of cardstock and 2 stamped. I placed them into the lower corner arranging them until I liked the look. I wanted my flower to really pop so it is stamped in Melon Mambo.

     I love the look of the little edge of Melon Mambo cardstock layering behind the DSP…
