Happy New Year With The Cutting Cafe

Hi there! This week at The Cutting Cafe we are working on bringing in the new year. Can you believe that it's 2017?!? The years seem to be flying by. I, for one, am ready for 2016 to be over with. 

For my project I used three Cutting Cafe files. The 2017 Number Shaped Card, the Card In A Box, and the Card In A Box Embellishments. It has been a long time since I have made one of these Card In A Box cards. I forgot how much I like them. The set even comes with a file for an envelop. I used my Cricut Explore to cut out the card, envelop and the embellishments.

The Card In A Box flattens for easy mailing.

The image is Party Girl Avery from Paper Nest Dolls. I colored her with Copic markers and cut her out with my brand new Brother Cut'N Scan 2! (It was an early Christmas gift from my husband)

I use floral wire and hot glue to add the embellishments. I like the floral wire because I can bend the wire to perfectly place the embellishments. 

And here's a close up...
