Christening Card Exploding Box

This card is the first exploding one that I have made and I really enjoyed making it.

I used different coloured cardstock and layered it so that it gave it more visual image. As this card was from 3 separate households it was good to be able to have a flap each for the sentiment.

I made my own template for it as I couldn't find the magazine article I had read so there was a fair bit of tweaking needed.

Materials used were Rub ons from DCVW, Poundland and Papermania, Peels offs Woodware & Papermania, Flowers were from Prima, a hen night 'lei' and Ebay buys. Ribbon and gems are from Papermania.

Inside the box I used a gift card from the Linda Bernsen QVC TSV and we all put money inside it. This was a perfect way of giving a gift and a card all rolled into one.
