Card in a Box: For Boys!

I am part of a few Facebook Groups that target card making and Cricut. So I found this wonderful new trend called: Card in a Box. I followed the measurements from a lady on YouTube called; Serene Stamper Channel.

Measurements: Cut card stock 8 1/4"x9". Score along the 9" side; 2 1/8", 4 1/4", 6 3/8", 8 1/2", Turn 90·. Score at 2 3/4". With the 8 1/4" side on top and the 2 3/4" side on the left, cut at 6". Take the scrap piece and cut at 3 1/8", turn pice and cut in half you'll have two pieces to be inserted in your card box to hold your items. I really recommend watching the above video by Serene Stamper Channel. Very helpful!
Cricut Cartridge(s): Create a Critter 2
Note: I got the sports team logo from various websites.

I made a card for a friend's son, who is turning one this month. They're big fan's of the Portland Timbers. I had posted my card on the group and a lady asked me if I was willing to make her one for her grandson. I was so flattered!!! So, I made her a Boston Red Sox themed card. I'm pretty proud of it. It was my second Card in a Box.

I have definitely found that it can be difficult (not impossible) to find boy appropriate stuff. I have two boys and multiple male nephews, and it takes me awhile to come up with masculine cards. But, hey!, can't go wrong with sports. Hope you enjoy them.

Bachelorette Party

These are invites for my sister-in-laws' friend's bachelorette party. The colors are: Tiffany Blue, Hot Pink, with Lilac color accents (you can't see the lovely colors, since I forgot to take pictures of my finalized project, and I got these from my Instagram account.) I plan to make lovely banners to accompany the invites-coming soon. If you flip the "spa invites" over, it will have all the party information for the girls "Spa-aah Getaway". We got this idea from a pin on Pinterest from One Charming Party. We used this as inspiration and with the Cricut Girl's Makeup Party Cartridge, we made it into a Spa Getaway for the brides friends!

Masculine Birthday Card

My father-in-laws birthday was today. And so I made him a little card. My son wanted us to make him a boat card;  "because papou (grandfather in Greek) loves fishing and boats." I used Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge; Fiskars birthday stamps; wood grain Cuttlebug emboss folder; Michael's seaside cardstock and sea green Reflection ink. I also tried a new technique (for me), where I sewed waves with my new 'We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy Starter Kit'. I loved using this new tool!

Happy Birthday Robot Theme Card

I waited till the last minute to make this guy for my nephew's birthday. I recommend not ever waiting till the last minute to finish a card. It can be very stressful! The little robot arms kept interlocking with each other and the Happy Birthday sign, but with a few 3D dots, I was about to secure and control how the robots would lay when the card was opened or closed. Anyways, it was a success! So well worth the stress fussing over it.
Cartridge Used: Cricut Robot Party Paper: Michael s card stock, Monsters & Robots Kids Paper, other misc paper. Other: Eyes are embellishments from Michaels.
