And now for my project.  I made a mini card gift set!  I embossed one of our plastic pillow boxes with out Polka Dot Embossing Folder, cut a card wrap using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, and adhered it to the pillow box.

Then I made 6 mini cards, also using the shaped card, found on the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and decorated it with various paper pack scraps and the cute little stamps found in #30yearsofhappy National Stamping Month Stamp set.
So much fun!  Check out all of the mini cards that I made.
