Exploding Box Card

I've been admiring the exploding box cards on Melly's blog for quite a while now.  So as it's my Sister's Birthday tomorrow I thought I would have a go at making one myself.  Not being one for instructions I set fourth with my trimmer, scoreboard, and stash and here's what I've come up with...I've left the centre clear for me to write my greeting.

I've used a lot of die cuts to layer up the insides and handmade some Fimo flower embellishments. The stamp is one of the first Little Claire stamps I bought and has been a little bit neglected of late.

Item's: all card from stash, Cherry Patterned Paper - a freebie from Bearly Mine Designs, other patterned paper was free from a craft mag, Fimo, Papermania Flower punches, Roses and Pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts, Fiskars Border Punch, Lace from local sewing shop, Nellie Dies, Nesties, circle punch from Woodware, Sentiment stamp from Pink Gem, Teddy Stamp from Little Claire, Memento Cocoa Brown, ProMarkers and Sakura Metallic Gelly Roll Pens.
