Scrapy Land Challenge #77

Hello all,

It is time for a new challenge at Scrapy Land Blog and it is as usual Anything Goes using dies that Scrapy Lang Store carries.

Here is my contribution to the challenge inspiration:

A friend of mine needed something very special for her parents 50th wedding anniversary, so I decided to make an exploding box card.

I used Spellbinders Large Squares, but you can also use Elisabeth Craft Designs Fitted Squares to achieve the same design for the side panels.

To separate the "cake" layers, you can use Elisabeth Craft Designs Dotted Scallop Circles (on my wishlist). I actually used Cricut machine to cut out the ones in my card. The flowers were made using Spellbinders Rose Creation die.

I would like to invite you to stop by Scrapy Land Blog and see what the rest of the DT made for this challenge inspiration and to join for a chance to win one of two $10 gift certificates to Scrapy Land Store.

I hope you enjoyed this post...
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by...

  6. Your exploding box card is gorgeous! So white/gold combo is beautiful!! I love the flowers and pretty ribbon to! Beautiful!!! For your cards that you make, do you have a cut file you use for making the matching boxes to hod the cards in? Such a great idea..just wondering where you got the file or if you just created it yourself?
