Hello to you my crafty friends! Thanks for visiting my blog today. I made a Mother's day Card in a Box for my dear mom. My mom loves teddy bears and roses. So when I thought of what I would make for her I came up with this! I am so happy with how it turned out. It may just be my favorite Card in a Box so far. I craft with critters and I usually don't do many floral designs but I really wanted to make one of these cards with the flowers bursting out like what you see on Pinterest. But I had to have my critter in there somewhere too, sooooo......Here it is!
I've had my eye on this little bear from the Cricut Create a Critter 2 cartridge and thought she would be just perfect. For the flowers I wanted lots of detail so I thought I better dust off my Imagine. I pulled out my Lori's Garden Cartridge and went to work. This cartridge has the most beautiful designs. I wish Provo Craft would have stuck it out with this machine because it is quite fabulous when it works like it should. I guess I'm lucky because it has worked just fine for me.
I used Cream cardstock and cut my box card. I used this beautiful glittery damask DCWV Cardstock for all the layers both interior and exterior. I added a pale pink ribbon to the outside. All the rest of the design was printed and cut with my Imagine machine including the bear and hat. I love how easy it is to coordinate colors with my Imagine.
I layered a couple small Prima flowers with a rhinestone brad to add bling to her hat. I used pearls to make her a necklace and add dimension to her eyes. I chalked her cheeks and used Glossy Accents on her little nose. The stamp is from My Pink Stamper- Happiest Moments. I wish the colors and papers showed up as vibrant and glittery in these pics as they are in person. Isn't she cute! She looks so happy in the garden with the butterflies flying about. I hope my Mom enjoys her card as much as I enjoyed making it!
I will be participating in the following challenges:
