For this project, I decided to make a pop-up card using one of the cutting cafe files and another for the flowerpot and grass for the inside:

Some closer looks:

I used my cricut explorer to cut the card and to write the sentiment on the front, however I had a little misshapen (when not ;-)
My cricut marker was dried up from not using it ;-) and I had to use a micron marker to write on top of the soft writing. LOL, I ended using my handwriting, I never do LOL
I used the micron marker also for adding some fun movement to the bees, which came from an sticker pack, I think I bought at a Dollar Tree store LOL. Handy uh...

 I used the blush paper pack from CTMH for the inside and some CTMH white and honey cardstock as well for the card bases. I used some CTMH foam popdots.

This was in general a fun project to do. I used as inspiration an sketch by  Share the Joy Challenge:

However, this challenge just passed, but ours will be up for a month ;-)

I hope you enjoy this project and leave me some love,
Have wonderful week,

Vicky Tovar
