Outside the Box

I am part of an incredibly talented team of demonstrators! Once a month we get together for a team meeting and swap card fronts. Jen Rios-Raner always comes up with a very unique style for her card design. Her Valentine was designed to be suitable for a man, but it would not have to be limited to Valentine's Day. Give it to husband or boyfriend on an anniversary or just to tell him how important he is to you.

Jen used a Texturz Plate from the Stampin Up! Backgrounds 1 pack (115962, $11.95) to achieve the raised design on the Real Red card stock. Her pieces of Basic Black card stock are perfect uses of those little scraps you always end up with. She used the Basic Black 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (115615, 8.95 for 10 yards), the Heart to Heart punch (113694, $15.95), the Scallop Edge punch (112091, $15.95) and the Paper-Piercing Tool (116631, $3.50). I believe her circles were made with the Circle Scissor Plus (112530, $29.95) and a brad from the Hodgepodge Hardware, Styled Vanilla (112454, $29.95) through the Basic Black heart and striped ribbon. For the phrase from the Always stamp set, she probably colored the words with Stampin' Write markers before stamping (Basic Black, 100082, and Real Red, 100063, $3.25). The embossed (black embossing powder, 109133, $4.75) E for "everything" came from the Lovely Letters Alphabet stamp set (115030, $43.95). The card itself is made with So Saffron, Basic Black and Real Red card stock (105118, 102851, and 102544, respectively). The Stampin' Dimensionals (104430) behind both pieces of Real Red card stock make her designs pop.
