Create a Critter Card~Wishing you a very happy day!

Hello Everyone,
I want to share a quick card I made for over at Stacy's~Lovethatbug. She is doing a Create A Critter series and I thought it would be fun to join in. Super simple card: My card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 which I embossed using the cuttlebug~dots embossing folder.  I cut the alligator at 3 3/4 plus the layers and embossed using the cuttlebug~tiny bubbles folder. I cut the brown layer at 2 x 5 and embossed with the dots folder to layer the alligator on. The 2 layers on the bottom are 1 x 5 pieces that a tore to give it a little different look and attached ribbon from Michael's. The sentiment~Wishing you a happy day is from Hero Arts. Kinda cute, ha?

Always & Forever Shadowbox

I wanted to share this shadow box that I made for a friend of mine who's daughter just got married about 3 weeks ago. It was one of my projects I made last weekend during our scrap retreat/swarm. I have made a few of these before and they make beautiful gifts. I hope I inspire you to try making one~they are a lot of fun and the end result is great!!

I started with 12 x 12 black paper as my base. The base layer I used patterned paper cut at 11 3/4 x 11 3/4. I wanted to format around a 5 x 7 photo so I cut a mat size 5 1/4 x 7 1/4 in cream,  a 5 1/2 x 7 1/2 in pink and 5 3/4 x 7 3/4 in black. Attaching a satin ribbon bow around the cream layer. I then cut a mat size 6 7/8 x 8 1/2 in cream, 7 1/4 x 8 7/8 in pink and 7 1/2 x 9 3/8 in black for the next layer. I used the Sweethearts cartridge to cut the dove at 2" and embossed it with the cuttlebug~swiss dots folder. I used the gypsy to weld the "Always & Forever" at 1.12 x 3.19 each word separately and the & symbol at 1.22 using Lyrical Letters cartridge. I welded the date at .49 x 2.06 and cut it on vinyl for easy placing. I used a SU punch for around the date. The pretty flower piece on the side of the layout I found at Michael's. Pretty ha??

The challenges are: cricutcardz Challenge #67~Spring project using pink, green and white only AND Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge #48. I hope you like it as much as I did making it!!

This is a 5" card with a base layer that is 4 3/4. The scallop and flower plus the layers are cut at 3 1/2  from the Create a Critter cartridge. The little face on the flower is from PK~dolly dumplins faces set. I have used a pretty flower border punch from fiskars.

The solid  paper used is from SU and the patterned paper I am not sure what company~just scraps I had laying around.

The box is one that I found at a craft shop that I decorated up. I cut the strips at 2 1/8 x 9 1/2 to fit around the sides and 4 1/2 x 4 3/4 for the top. I distressed it a bit using a distress tool and a color box ink pad~olive pastel. The leaves were cut at 1 1/4  and used the cuttlebug to emboss them using the swiss dots folder.
