My dear friend Jolene is celebrating a birthday today. All month I have been working with Close To My Heart's featured paper packet La Vie En Rose so I had it on my table when planning out this card. The box card design is from SVG Cuts. I used CTMH's glitter paper and embellishments from the La Vie En Rose Complements. The birthday sentiment is from the stamp set Your Own Kind of Wonderful.

Animal Greetings is an adorable stamp set from Close To My Heart. What makes this stamp set even more precious is that for every set sold at $17.95 Close To My Heart is donating $7 to Operation Smile.
Operation Smile is an international medical charity whose global network of thousands of credentialed medical volunteers from over 80 countries is committed to helping improve the health and lives of children from more than 60 countries. To date, the organization has provided more than 240,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.

For my C&S card design I wanted the animals to be bigger than the stamp image. I used the Cricut cartridges Create A Critter and Create A Critter 2. I made these cards into valentines, but they can work for any occasion.

The last few days I've been taking old tutorials and designs making them into Design Space files to cut with my Cricut Explore. This chocolate box that fits Ghirardelli squares is one of those old tutorials! This would be perfect to make up for Valentine's.
I made my box with Close To My Heart cardstock, a retired Close To My Heart stamp of the month, and ribbon from my stash.
If you'd like to try to make your own box here is a link to the Design Space project. I have a subscription to the Cricut library and now I'm not sure which pieces I used! This will be free if you have a subscription or the cartridges I happened to use. Otherwise you will be prompted to purchase whatever you do not have in your library.
