A Real Treasure

Popping in quick today to share a card I created using my Cricut Expression and the Life’s a Party cartridge. Have you seen this cartridge?! I picked it up last week and it is definitely one of my new favorites!!! Soooo many cute unexpected goodies on it!
Sadly, my great nephew was recently diagnosed with Leukemia. I wanted to send him a card letting him know that we are thinking of him, and what a real treasure he is to us, and what more appropriate than a treasure chest!

I cut the chest from brown on brown Core’dinations cardstock. After my chest was cut, I embossed the top and bottom flaps using my Cuttlebug and Argyle embossing folder; then I lightly sanded the embossed areas. You can’t have treasure without adding bling so I covered the lock and “treasure” in stickles.

I decorated the inside with accessories cut from the Life’s a Party cartridge.

Thanks for stopping by!!
