Peachy Keen Challenge #5

Today is the start of another Peachy Keen Challenge. We are making 3D projects that have to do with the weather (no cards and no layouts).

I made a sweet little spring gift box.

I used the Spring Holiday Cards Cricut cartridge for the box. I just made the box as large as I could on my Gypsy. It turned out to be a very nice size. The scallop and circle are from the Mini Monograms Cricut cartridge. And this adorable little spring chicken and umbrella are from a set called Shower Peepers. This is one of those darling stamp/ die combos that Peachy Keen Stamps and Cottage Cutz make together. This little chickie was just too cute not to make up for the weather theme. 

I tried something new for me, I cut everything on white cardstock and colored her with Copics and some chalk. My friends Lorie and Janice do this A LOT and I wanted to give it a try. I really love the extra depth and dimension it adds to the dies, I will definitely be trying this again.

I hope you will join in on this fun PKS challenge and I'm really looking forward to some of the sweet spring rain! Hugs- Glora
