Keep Calm......

Morning! Are you up and ready for a new challenge at Exploring Cricut and More? Diane has challenged us with a 'Crafters Choice'. Those are always great and easy to do. But there is one catch. You knew there had to be, didn't you? Use at least 2 die cuts on your project. Now that isn't so bad, is it?
I decided to make a gable box for my project. That is my first die cut. It is a Lori Whitlock design. I bought it at the Silhouette Store. It is file #60419. For my second die cut, I cut these cute butterflies from Sarah Bailey. I also purchased this file from the S.S. It is file #57037. I only cut one style of the butterflies in this set. The designer cardstock that I used is from Bo Bunny. The butterflies is the back side of the same that I used for the box. The green is just reg. cardstock. I coated the green in clear Wink of Stella to give it some sparkle. I glued the bottom butterfly to the box and the top one I popped up on one thickness of foam tape. The tag is from a Tiny Tag Metal Die set (3rd die cut here) from My Craft Spot. The sentiment is from the Tiny Tags 3 stamp set also from My Craft Spot. The bow is some ribbon that I crinkled and dyed.
We sure hope you plan on joining us for our challenge this week. We do so love to see your creations. How about heading on over to Exploring Cricut and More and check out the projects that my DT Sister's made. Awesomeness for sure!!!! Check the rules in the sidebar and then head to your crafty space and create a project using at least 2 die cuts and link it up so we can come by and admire it. You have until 10pm, EST, Saturday, July 19th to link.
Hope ya'll like my gable box!!!! :)
