Two days back..it was my husband's birthday and I thought of making something different (and special too). Something that I had never made before.
So, with all the help from a very simple and easy to understand tutorial from Sazzle, I made this explosion box card. But one of my friends renamed it as the 'Boom Box Card'. A special thanks to one of my sissie's who encouraged me to try doing something different and to come out of my comfort zone.
So here is my 'Boom Box' .
The top cover: This the box cover which is decorated with doily, flowers, a stamp, leaves, laces and a butterfly. Also added a white satin-ribbon hanging on the side to give it a charm-effect.
One of the side panels: This side panel has been decorated with buttons, twine, rhinestones, laces, flowers and the leaves. Did you notice the zig-zag cutting of all layers?
And now BOOOOOM...opens the boom box..
First layer: This layer is sweet and simple so that the entire focus could be at the basket in the center. This layer has pockets with some personalized messages written on the tags. The ribbons at the top would pull out the tags.
A closer look at the little basket in the center with the hand-written sentiment. Did you notice the green grass effect under the basket?
Second Layer: This layer is embossed with foam sheets (not visible in the picture) so as to give a 3-D effect. A hand-written message and the stickers completed this layer (The cover of the box is put just to get a clear picture).
Third layer: This layer is full of sentiments with some rhinestones and pollen to complete the look. If you notice, all layers as well as the outer covering of the box is distressed.
