Valentine Mailbox Card from SVGCuts with the Heartstrings Paper Packet

I did it!!!  I actually uploaded an SVG with Cricut Design Space and successfully cut it out using my Cricut Explore.  :)  You have NO idea how excited I was to finally have a chance...or maybe, my crafty friends, you DO!  ;)

It was a super special card that I was sending to my kiddo in college, so I HAD to make this one good.  I am amazed at how easy it was...

After I uploaded all of the images that were included in the file, I just needed to refer to the sizing guide that came with it, resize each of the images, and choose my paper!  I wanted to use the adorable arrows on the B&T in the Heartstrings Paper Packet...

The Cranberry CS shows up a bit orange here, but it isn't...
I accented the patterns with the Lagoon, Whisper, Cranberry, White Daisy, and a light pink CS.  A few Red Enamel Hearts fit nicely to replace some of the paper hearts on the envelopes.  I also dug out some puffy hearts that totally remind me of the stickers I had as a kid in the 80's....oh, um, did I say that?  ;)

Do you recognize that darling White Marquee Enamel Heart?  Retired products are so awesome and so not...

This style card is called a Box Card.  I am totally hooked on them now.  They fold up to fit in an envelope, can you believe it?

This particular one came with the envelope cut in the file I purchased from SVGCuts.  I added a leftover cutout to decorate it...

THIS was SUCH a fun project to make!  I hope it puts a smile on my sweet girl's face!  What are you making for your sweeties?
