Box Pop Up Card

I designed the basic shape in Cricut Design Space.
I used the SSS Wild Cuddly Critters stamp set for the images.  I used my Copic markers to color all the images.

The trees I found in Cricut Access and just used extra green pieces to make the grasses.  For the banner I used SSS Stitched Banner die.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with VersaFine onyx black and embossed with clear embossing powder.

Flamingo Watercolor Card

You don't need fancy or expensive supplies to create wonderful handcrafted card.  I watercolored this card using Crayola Fine Line Markers.  I embellished with Ranger Enamel Accents, Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle marker and a white Jelly Roll pen.

Cricut Flower Shaker Card

I searched Cricut Access for a simple flower.  I sliced the flower shape out of the green card front panel and cut it.  I also cut the flower shape out of two pieces of craft foam. Be sure to use the Custom setting on your machine and set it to foam.  Also I used my deep cut blade housing, but I'm not sure it is necessary.  

The best way to put the layers together is using a Xyron sticker maker.  This gives solid adhesive coverage on the foam which will assure good adhesion and no gap areas where your shaker bits could escape.

The Happy Birthday and butterflies were also found on Cricut Access.

I used a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle marker for the shimmer and Ranger Enamel Accents for the dots.

For the inside I used the leftover flower pieces and another butterfly.  I inked the edges and stamped the Happy Birthday in Simon Says Stamp's Watermelon hybrid ink.  I stamped the cupcake with Simon's Cobblestone's ink and colored it with Prismacolor pencils.  For embellishments on the inside I again used the SN Clear Overlay Sparkle marker, Sakura Stardust pens and Sakura Glaze pens.
