Disney Princess Card and Trinket Box

I made this card for my daughter who turned 5 years old today!  My orders were "Mommy, I want  card with three princess on it!'
I used Happily Ever After Cart and my gypsy for this project. The card is the largest I’ve ever made measuring 7.5 x 6 inches when closed. The box is a round wodden box I bought from AC Moore. All the princesses were cut at 3.5 inches. Any smaller and it would be even harder to piece together. I used ALOT of Stickles on this project!

Dinosaur Train Card

I made this card for my son's birthday. He just turned three years old. He loves trains all he talks about is Thomas last year I made him a Thomas card in SCAL. This year he also has a thing for dinosaurs. So I thought of combining both. I used the Create a Critter cart with my Gypsy, for the project. I think Create a Critter cart is a must have for parents with little ones.

Thomas on last year's card:

Dinosaur train card:

I used the Gypsy because I could hide portions of the images I did not want and to save paper. I hid the faces on the train and the sun, so that only the dinosaurs were smiling. Its also nice to hide other portions of the trains so that I didn't have to cut the same thing twice in two different colors.You can still cut the same card without the Gypsy though.

Sizes for the cuttings:
The card base is a folded 8 1/2 X 6 inch piece of cardstock
Patterned piece of paper is 4 X  5 3/4 inch
Palm trees (1 regular and 1 flipped) - 2 1/2 inches
Sun - 1 3/4 inches
Train - 1 3/4 inches, you will also need another train car cut at 2 inches
T-Rex - 2 1/2 inches
Brontosaurus - 2 1/2 inches.

Ink the edges for more definition. 
Glue the trees and the sun flush onto the card but use pop-dots to pop up the train and dinosaurs.

Happy cutting everyone!
