Snowflakes Basket Box Card

I Bought digital version of the new Cricut cartridge, All Occasion Box Cards by Lori Whitlock. Downloaded the handbook. Checked out Lori W. blog for sizing info for A2 card (Cricut is fixing the problem of the images not sized when images inserted) and viewed video on how to assemble.

Made this for my Best Friend, Daisy, my dog. Daisy wants it to snow. Daisy made Snow Angels Jan last yr and loved it.

My hubby built the file cabinet/seat to go with my new craft/sewing table/desk. The hardest part was putting the casters on the bottom. The directions did not have a picture of how to do it so after he put them on he realized that part of the hardware was on backwards. 


You can see 3 of 4 clear hearts on the snowflakes. There is a 4th one on the big snowflake back left.
