XOXO~I Love You!!~

Happy Sat.!

Hi~ya All!

Just checking in as I have not posted in a few days. I hope everyone is well and creating lots of beautiful crafts. This is a card I managed to complete today, and made an envelobox to put it in. The envelobox was made with my Ultimate Craft Companion, which my daughter bought me for Christmas. I just love it, it makes the perfect size envelope for all size cards. The envelobox is perfect for cards with dimensions and depth, and you don't have to worry about damaging your card.

Anyhoo.., I used the Calligraphy cartridge for the sentiment on the front. This cartridge is hard to cut if you are not using a 2" or larger size. I probably cut it at least 4 times, before I was able to get a good cut, and I used Crystal Effect to give it a gloss. I used PP, for the poodles,(border cut), and the heart, which I welded to the poodle in DS. I also did a little machine stitching, use my CB swiss dots, and MS lace punch. The heart punch border is from Fiskars, added some lace, pom-poms, and adhesive pearls. The inside is layered and I punched 2 hearts at the bottom. The red flourish is also cut from the Calligraphy cartridge. The envelobox is made out of card stock, for sturdiness. Well that is about it, as I don't have any creative vibes lately. I have some things that I want to create, but just can't seen to get them on paper.
You can send me some of your creativity, if you are overflowing with it! {:)

Chat Soon!

I love the border punches you used! I came from the Cricut MB to see how you'd done things. Thanks for the explanations!

This is amazing. So much dimension to it. Some cards are great, others inspire greatness - this is both!! I love your blog. xxxx
