I decided to make an Exploding Box because this dear friend lives very far away from her family, and knowing how much she misses them, I thought she would like to keep photos of her relatives and most beloved ones in the box. She is a fan of red and this is why I used this colour throughout primarily.
This exploding box has 3 layers, giving her plenty of room to add photos and even journalling. A variety of papers have been used (Damask, spotty, flowers), mostly digi ones; the red and cream cardstock are Core-Dinations and the different embellishments (flowers, gems, buttons, ribbon, swirls, etc.) are all from my own stash. The butterfly die cut is Cuttlebug; the sentiments have been printed in Word; I have also used several stamps from Gstudio and Rhona Ferrer.
Here are several views of the exploding box:
I would like my box to enter:
Paper Cupcakes - Red and cream
Die Cut Dreams - Anything but a card
Stamptacular Sunday - A time for giving
Mami Doodles - Gift item
Saturday Challenge - Handmade gift
Creative Card crew - Not another card
AiFactory - Friendship
Moving along with the times - More than one fold
A Spoon full of Sugar -Anything goes
Have a nice weekend!
