Birthday exploding box!

Hi guys,

Happy Sunday... What plans for the day?? I am gonna relax.. I have been breaking my back over a lot of orders... Phew..!!

I made an exploding box on custom order for the client's fiance.. It was really challenging.. Male card.. not my forte.. I somehow always have an urge to add pink, flowers, butterflies, bling, etc.. Mind you though.. I did add flowers.. Lots of it.. *grin*

Exploding boxes are a superb way to either showcase pictures or just keep writing mush.. Some people (including me) love writing a lot of mush.. It's just a way to express our feelings.. Aren't our handmade cards supposed to do just that...

Anyways... Enough of rambling.. here goes... I really need to learn how to do a  video... all my posts are now becoming way too picture heavy....

panel 2 side 1 using cir die cuts and pocket note cards

Panel 2 side 2.. Circle die cuts and 4*4 note cards...

the cake.. Ta daa!! totally inspired by the beauties karuna comes up with

the cake on the card

That's the entire card for you.. Way too many pictures I know.. I promise to try a video the next time.. I hope the recipient and my customer both like it.. Personally.. I love the cake and the box really explodes.. I wish I could show it to you guys in a video, the way the flaps fall...

Thats a lovely one. The whole point of attempting a box card is scary.......so many panels to embellish. I have two of them incomplete not knowing what next to do.

But then you have done a fabulous job....
