Mailbox Bouquet Box Card

Good Morning,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.  Today I would like to show you some Box Cards that I made using svg files from Dreaming Tree.  

I recently heard from a follower who told me that she has had a Cameo Silhouette for over two years and it is just sitting there because she doesn't know how to use it!  There are many, many classes out there that will teach you how to use your Cameo.  Once you start using it, you will become addicted!  I suggested to her that she start with Youtube.  They have several videos called "Unboxing your Cameo Silhouette" after that, she can move on to "Using your Cameo for the first time" and before she knows it, she will wonder how she ever got along without it!  

I also want to remind everyone that if you go to Dreaming Tree there are free svg files that you can try out and they all come with videos that show you how to put your projects together.

Here are the Mailbox Bouquet Boxes that I made from Dreaming Tree.

Isn't it bright and springy?  I made two because making two is as easy as making one.

One of the things I love best about Dreaming Tree is that all the cards come with envelope files too.

I also wanted to remind you that the Silhouette Tool Prize Giveaway ends this coming Sunday.  April 28th.  If you would like to enter, please go HERE.

I am entering this box card into the following challenges:

Pile It On - #153 Lots of Layers/or use scraps
A Bit More Time To Craft - #90 ATG
Not Just Cards - April ATG
If You Give a Crafter a Cookie - Challenge #115
