Mother's Day

Last night my roommate asked if I could make one of these for her to give to her Mom for Mother's Day.  Her specifications were no ooey gooey lovey dovey stuff and it needed to have a yorkie on it.  That left a lot of options for me to play with!  Granted, Mother's Day is still a ways away, but since I've only just started playing with these Pop-up box cards, I figured it would be good practice.

For this card I used images from Fred She Said, The Paper Shelter and Cricut.  The sentiment is one I made.  The butterflies are from the Fred She Said set called Swallow Tail Butterfly Digi & Color.  The cute puppy is from a Paper Shelter set called Teacup Yorkie.  All of the flowers, the box and everything else is from Cricut.  Because I made the flowers higher on the box than 'normal' I needed a larger envelope, so I used one of my 7.5" x 7.5" envelopes and added on to it so it was taller.  I then decorated it using the same images from the box card and added the vinyl word "Mom", also cut from my Cricut.

Oh Gosh, this is filled with lusciousness. I've done a lot of box cards and they take time, but never made one this filled with love. Great job with arranging your it all. Don't forget we are partnering with Use Your Stuff and would love you to link to Double Trouble "Again and Again" wherein you repeat an item on your project with optional twist of critter...our link is on their challenge blog. Hope to see you there and future fun challenges.
