Baby explosion Box

Hey guys,

Am back with another.. A card on order for a client.. A new baby is about to bless their family and they wanted a card in which everyone from the family would be writing messages for the new born.. Since we do not the sex of the baby I kept it a neutral color so that it could be gifted to a boy or a girl.

A new baby brings so much joy into the house. So keeping this in mind, I have used a lot of bright colors ( I am anyways a bright color addict).. There really isn't much to say about this.. As they say a picture speaks a 1000 words so am gonna show off the box with a lot of pictures.

And finally 

Ok, let me describe the explosion box in short. it has three layers. The bottom layer has the giraffe tag pockets on opposite sides and two pane;s of handwritten mush. Outside I have done a sea themed look with dolphins, crabs and octopus. The lid has a cute pinwheel. I love making pinwheels.
The second layer has tag pockets on two panels and detachable tags on two panels. Teh back side has 4 note cards on each panel. The top most layer has 2 panels of detachable tags and two panels of mush. The back side of the last panel has tag pockets and tri-shutter cards on the opposite sides. The centre has the pram.
