Timeless Tuesday: Fall Off the Page!

Yippee!  It's Tuesday everyone!  And this week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge is extra special because this week is my week to host!

For this week's challenge, FTTC193, I'm asking you to create a card or project where you're focal image falls off of your page.  All you have to do is ensure that your stamped image drops off the edge of your page.  Here is my example that I shared with everyone on the Flourishes blog today...

Joy to the World
 But I decided I would show you another fun card where my focal image drops off the page...

Happy Holidays Holly
I began my card by stamping the glorious holly image from the "Naturally Merry" stamp set using Memento "Black Tuxedo" ink on Flourishes Classic White Cardstock.  Using the die as masking tool, I inked up the edges of the image using Ranger's Distress Inks, "Old Paper" and "Peeled Paint".  I then took the "Happy Holidays" stamp from the retired stamp set, "A Gift For You" stamp collection and added some subtle stamping in the focal images back ground.

This card is extra special!  If you pull the black ribbon at the top of the card, not one... but TWO tags pop out of the card.  One at the top...

... and one at the bottom!

All the sentiments stamped on the tags are from the "Naturally Merry" stamp set as well.  Isn't that cool!!!!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you'll join me and the rest of the team and create a fun card or project where your focal image drops off the edge of your creation.

Take a peek at what my fellow Timeless Tuesday designers have created for today…
