Birthday Themed Explosion Box

Thank you for stopping by!
It had been years since my last Explosion Box, and I needed a quick Birthday gift to contain a gift-card. I was surfing through Youtube and decided why not?
This was the perfect way to make my small gift to my bestie look more personalized.

This is the view from the top. I added colorful flowers and a pennant with the sentiment.
I made the flowers with a sweet die set from Ali Express.

The inside pops open to reveal a 3D cup. In it, I placed a gorgeous teabag ( you're seeing a paper rose in the picture)
The small card in this picture contained the sentiment, and housed the gift-card, but the box had a small set of personalized cards also, that she can use for notes.
The note cards all coordinated with soft colors. I used my Cricut to cut them out. as well as the envelopes. 

I made a quick video, and the recipe for this 3D card is:
Cricut Explore Air2/ Design Space 3
Flower,Doily, and border Dies from Ali Express
Cup of Love Dies from The Scrapping Cottage
Paper : ItFactor / WeRMemory Keepers, Others
Love Elsie Stamps/ Claire Pep Rally
Washi tape
  Ranger Distress Inks
Gesso

Be inspired, Be Blessed! -Raquel

Cricut Explore Air 2 Floral Thank You Card

Please enjoy this video, I apologize in advance for the abrupt editing, and I appreciate your feedback. I also should have mentioned that I used the fast-cut feature for some of the die cutting, and made this card very quickly. Overall, I am very pleased! Be blessed!

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
