Mothers Day Card & Matching Gift Box

A little Cricut fun today. There's a lot of things going on here.
Lets start with the card!

I started with a Make It Now project (Smell The Roses Card) from design space, but used the customize feature to replace its greeting with one for Mothers Day from the
Mothers Day Phrases cartridge, which was super simple!
Inside the customize screen I just delete the greeting that was there, and added the image
for the one I wanted it and sized it over top of the pre-designed card!
Then, Just follow the on screen prompts.

Gluing all those intricate pieces together was a real riot, but I used Ranger
multi-medium matte and got very good results.

Next I moved onto my box.
This particular box comes with inserts to make multiple compartments, but I choose
not to use those so I deleted those portions of the cut file and cut only the box & lid.
I wanted to add something to the top so I choose one of the fun flowers from the 3d Floral & More cartridge that I've been wanting to use since it came out.
Took a little bit to put together, but not as long as I thought.
I used Glossy Accents adhesive for this since it dries so quickly.

Here's some close ups

No I just gotta get a gift to go in the box ;)

Hope you Like!
