Every year I make four little gift boxes for the hostess gifts at a progressive dinner for an Old Car Touring Club.  This year I made these little cricut boxes with a winter white old car scene on the front of the box with a splash of color on the top.
The old car is from the Wrapped All Up cricut cartridge, the trees are from Christmas, the snowflakes are from TC's December 25th and the rosettes are from Ribbons and Rosettes. 
I used Bazzill Kraft paper for the 4" box and then ran the white panels through my cuttlebug to emboss them.  I tied bakers twine around the car just to give it a little color and set it off from the all white scene.

It's been forever...

Let's see if I remember how to do this...

Here's an art project I made of my daughter using several cartridges:  Sophisticated, Victorian Romance, Formal Occasion and Doodlecharms.

The frame in the background is from Sophisticated.  I printed the words from Taylor Swift's song 'Love Story' directly on the kraft paper.  The metal crowns are from Tim Holtz.
The gown is from the Formal Occasions cartridge.  (I found it to have unrealistic barbie like proportions as my daughter is very thin and yet I still had to cut away her waist and hips from the photo for the dress to fit her!)  I cut two different colors of the top layer of the gown and then combined them to make the gown a little more interesting.  Then added bling, tulle and a ribbon.

For the prince I used the guy from Victorian Romance and then welded the cat head from Doodlecharms to him, cutting a 2nd piece of just the head to give him some dimension.  I also cut his arm and reattached it to position it to make it look like he was reaching for her hand.  I then added bling along with some tulle and a flower to his staff.

This was a fun, for no reason, project to work on.  I just wanted to see if I could create the vision I had in my head.
