Disney Box in a Card

Hi all.

20140219_180148 20140219_180200 20140219_180234 20140219_180255Today I made my first Box in a Card.  I used the Disney Mickey and Friends Cricut Cart.  I followed the design that Cara Miller posted for the box on her Let’s Learn Cricut Facebook page.  It is a closed group but if you are interested let me know so I can get you added. She provided the CCR file for the box and I was able to figure out the size of the images I wanted to add.  I cut most of the images at 2.5 inches. When it is closed it folds flat so you can put it in an envelope.  It was a lot of work but I made it for my grandson’s first birthday next week and he is worth all the effort!

I am also going to enter this in CARDZTV   3d birthday challenge.  I hope you all have a great day.

Wrap it Up My Craft Spot Challenge #79

Hi all,
I can not believe Christmas is less then 2 weeks away. This month seems to be flying by. 2012-12-13 08.34.21 I am also anxiously awaiting the birth of my 3rd grandchild due next week. I am trying to finish up all my cards and wrapping this week. I made this gift bag for my nail tech. I used the Cricut Forever Young cart for the purse and nail polish. The ornament is from the Cricut Artiste cart. I am entering this bag in My Craft Spot’s Wrap it up challenge.

Dynamic Duos #31 {Light Green and Red} Challenge

2012-12-03 16.39.46For this week’s dynamic duos challenge we were to use certainly celery and real red.  I decided to pull out my Winter Frolic cricut cartridge and create a card for a friend.  She is an animal advocate, so I thought this would be the perfect card for her for the holidays.  I used Authentique paper and cut the shapes at 3 inches.  I also used the sentiment that comes with the image and cut it at 2 inches.  I added wiggley eyes and lots of diamond dust stickels to help make it sparkle. I think it came out cute. Sorry if my camera washed the colors out a little.

Operation Write Home Midweek Challenge Celebrate Friendship

Hi,
I hope everyone is having a great week. It is hard to believe October is almost over.

This week OWH has challenged us to make friendship cards for our troops to send home.

I made this card using the Country Life Cricut cartridge. I cut the little pig and hen at 4 inches. I added liquid pearls to the pig , hen and sun for dimension.  I also used glossy accents. The paper for the background is from the cricut celebrations paper pack. The ticket stamp is a Close to My Heart stamp and the little tag and sentiment is from teeny tag sentiments by  My Creative Time. The finished card measures 5.50 by 4.25.

I love to get feedback, so please feel free to leave a comment.
