Another 3-D Pop Up Card in a Box!

My good friend Maryanne lost her beloved dog recently and I wanted to create something special for her. I decided on a card in a box and presented it to her yesterday.  She was very surprised and so sweet by promising to display and keep this card by Teddy's urn.

I truly enjoyed making this scene in the box; it was a lot of fun picking the various components and watching it all come together.  These 3-D scenes are addicting!

Just a Nice Simple Card with Glitter

Good Friday Morning!
I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest and decided that it would be prefect for a get well card.  I love that it is bright, simple and  very spring like.  And of course it is very sparkly!  Hopefully it will raise the spirits of the person who will be getting it.

The layout is simple and conducive to making a whole set of these if need be.  It would make a great gift! (It is never too early to think about Christmas gifts!)

Supplies used:
Dies:  Cheery Lynn Flower strip
Punch:  Punch Bunch tiny center
Stamps:  Hero Arts, feel better soon
Glitter:  Glitter Ritz, emerald

Enjoy your weekend!
