Valentine's Day Cupcake Box & Card

Hello  Everyone,
Hope you're having an awesome day. 
It's snowing ice here in New York. 
Drive safely, watch out for the pedestrians. 
Walkers, look both ways, and watched out for those drivers.


I made this box using the Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More 2 Cartridge
I used the two part feature at 8" tall.


I used the Spellbinders Dies S4-114 and S4-293
From both sets I used the third die from the center. 
I then popped it up using Recollections Foam Squares.

For the cupcake insert I used the third circle from the center of the Spellbinders Dies S4-114. I also used the Recollections 5/8" circle lever punch to punch the notched on the sides of the insert's circle.

I downloaded and printed this pattern paper for my box. My printer's ink quality is low, so the shade of colors were a bit lighter. I liked the way it came out though. It gave it a softer look. You can find more of these beautiful pattern papers at www.printablepartyshop.com

I used a downloaded subway art for the front of my card

For the inside of my card I created the sentiment using the fonts (Always Forever) and (Old Gate Lane FN) that I downloaded from http://www.1001freefonts.com

I also downloaded and printed this subway art for my card from rareynolds.blogspot.com
Not sure if this originated from there but this blogger does share links to other blogs where you can find more subway art like:

I entered this card in challenges; one of which is as follows:
