EXPLODING BIRTHDAY CARD IN A BOX

I know it’s been way too long and while there is no excuse for my procrastination, here are some that might get me off the hook –

  • Husbands 70th birthday and visiting family from Tasmania have consumed time and love.
  • Grandson’s electric wheelchair broken down so Nanny has now resumed the school run morning and night – never thought I would be back here on a daily basis. All good though.
  • Weather, how did that song go “Always blame the weather”! So hot here and with my  crafting gear outside, not real practical to craft for too long at a time.
  •  After the rush of the blog hop my mo jo waned.

Having said all that I have not been completely idle and have enjoyed making this card for eldest daughters birthday. Some of you know her from Deanies Kids Cuts.

Anyone visiting cards on Pinterest would have seen these wonderful creations and I have been keen to give them a go for some time now. Nadene’s birthday presented a perfect opportunity.

Nadene The flowers were stamped with the Flower Shop Clear stamp  set in Regals Elegant Eggplant, Island Indigo, Rose Red  and Crushed Curry inks  onto Whisper white and punched with the Pansy Punch.

Some smaller flowers from the Petite Petals Stamp set were stamped in Crushed Curry and punched with Petite Petals punch.

The same inks were used for the butterfly’s from the Papillon Potpourri then punched with the Elegant and Bitty butterfly punches. Leaves were punched Nadene 21using the Bird Builder punch in Garden Green Card stock.

The base card was Garden Green with panels from Sale-a-bration’s Painted Blooms Series paper  mounted onto Whisper White card stock.

The sentiment was stamped onto Whisper White using the stamp from Flower Patch Stamps in Island Indigo. Punched out with the Decorative label Punch.  The same punch was used to add backing in Garden Green.

For instructions and measurement I give credit to Sandi  MacIver  who is an awesome creator/card maker.  This is the link to her Explosion card. Thanks for your efforts Sandi.
