Sherbet Birthday Party
{Pop-up Card Box}


I used several different cricut cartridges for this project. 
Once Upon a Princess for the side ice-cream cones, and the flowers in the back.
Simply Charmed for the presents in front, Straight from the Nest for the small cones,
Sofia for the scalloped circles on the side, Create a Critter for the balloons, and the small banner punch from Stampin' Up for the banner in back. 
Of course lots of stickles to bring it all together for this fun card in a box.

SSINK's Challenge is Use Sheltering Tree

Today's SSINK challenge is using the Sheltering Tree stamp set -- and so happy that I have this set! I waited to order it because I thought I could, then it went on back order, so as soon as it came back, I got it. Had to. And just opened it yesterday.

I wanted to use some flower soft on the trees -- but I didn't have pink, and I really wanted these trees to looks like Cherry Blossoms. My grandmother always loved those trees -- and I do too. So I used "Spring" Flower Soft for some random spring flowers in the inked grass instead. I also used my cricut on Stampin' Up! cardstock - love how it cuts!
