Easter Card & Box + Exciting News!!!!!!



 Happy Happy Monday!!!!!
(Can't say I have ever been so excited on a Monday before)


First I have to share my exciting news, I made the San Design Team!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 (You must have all did what I requested by crossing all your fingers and toes, thank you!)
I can't wait for March!

Today I am also excited to show you an Easter Card I made and a matching box, I was so pleased with the way this turned out.


The adorable bear is from one of the many collections from
Scraptastical Kreations.

 ...and here is my Project!

I fussy cut the bear, (isn't his rabbit ears the cutest?) This image was already colored which was a great time saving choice for me considering I was also making the box to go along with it.
I used Paper Made Bakery kit papers and my new flowers I received in the mail Friday from Wild Orchid Craft. I have loads and loads of them and soooooo many different colors!


 
 
 
I made my own template for this box as the size was 7" by 5 1/2"..
To make the window I used spellbinders scallop rectangle , I measured with a ruler where the opening should be so that the bear would be in the spotlight then place acetate paper on the wrong side and glued in place.

 

The box is 1/4 " deep







Is anyone having issues with Blogger? It took me 5 turns all day to upload these pictures and Blogger keeps falling behind on saving the post. I had planned on giving directions and listing products but I thought I will wait until Blogger behaves.

Have a great day!!

Hurray for you now keep those fingers crossed for me. I am so glad you finally figured out where that bear came from. Both the card and box are just gorgeous Naomi. So much talent...[long winded sigh]...maybe I'll have to siphen some out of you during our next conversation. But, I promise to only take a little bit, really!

Big Hugs,
Lisa

HUGE congratulations Naomi, I know how much you wanted this spot and I am very excited for you.... and cannot wait to see all your beautiful creations. Your card is soooo cute, I love the bear (going to investigate that link shortly) and those flowers are just beautiful. So love the box, well done and for sharing the information on how you made it. I adore, adore, adore, adore, adore the peep hole!!
P.S Blogger has its moments with me 'often', normally when I need to save a post LOL, I cannot!! Frustrating...hope it settles for you re the photographs.

I am so excited that you made the DT. Congratulations. The box & card are so cute. The reason I don't use blogger is b/c of the problems it has. But it gives you so much more freedom to put what you want on your blog I think. Do you have any of those "wobbles"? Michael would love them! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I had more than you expected, eh? (My best Canadian, eh, even! LOL) Love you & Big Hugs!!! I have missed you. Patti
