MCT ~ Try Me Tuesday

Hello! Today is Try Me Tuesday over at My Creative Time. This is when Emma and the design team try a new technique. Sometimes it is one we have done in the past or something totally new. I must admit most of these techniques are new to me, so I am always super excited for these days!
So this time around we were asked to make a box card. I, of course, have never tried one of these before so I am super excited for this. Click here for a video on how to make one. I also must admit I might be hooked on these!
I have been wanting to use the my Stitched File Folder & Index Card Dies and Typewriter Die for some time now. I fell in love with the Build A Scripty & Watercolor Backgrounds from the May release and knew the "thanks" die from the Happy Thoughts set would be a fun combination together! I used foam, die cut twice and layered on top of each other, to give it extra dimension! LOVE this look and the best part is the foam matched PERFECTLY with my PTI paper! Love when this happens!
Materials Used:
Paper ~ PTI
Ribbon ~ stash
Ink ~ Stampin Up, Archival and Versa Mark
white embossing powder

That's it for me today! I hope you all have a wonderful day and thank you for always being so sweet and kind!
