Shell's 2nd Box card: 'Thank You', for a friend

Shell's second design!

Shell's Box card for a boy, includes charm

Shell made this box card in a cricut class; she designed the card so when it was stood up correctly the anchor charm is level with the boat to give the impression of being attached!

Shell's Paper Doll's Nativity Star Book

Paper dolls nativity star book, Shell gave Mary a bump by cutting the dress twice and shaping one; Mary’s arm is tucked behind donkey neck to give the impression she is riding it. Shell used black sparkle card for the night sky, using earthy colours for the shepherd making him appear more rustic. Shell used bright colours on the dolls representing as Kings to give the impression of wealth; the star is from the NOEL cart using black out. The story speaks for its self so no need for words.

The whole of this star card was completed in 3inch.
