Pop of Pink Botanical Exploding Box Card

There's a standing joke in our family that I'm always away for my niece Erin's birthday - it's not intentional, it just seems to happen!  I was very relieved and pleased that this year, by the narrowest of margins, I shall be here to celebrate her 21st!

I haven't yet purchased the Melon Mambo Stitched Ribbon, so I had to raid my stash

I've used Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper and Washi Tape to create an exploding box card for her.

Melon Mambo is such a pretty colour and adds a touch of drama against black & white

The box is also decorated with flowers created with the Botanical Builder Framelits that have Enamel Shape centres.

The centrepiece can hold either a gift card or some folding money

The greetings are both from Designer Tin of Cards

I used the Classic Label Punch to create the slot to hold the Gift card or money


There is a little slot in the base of the card that will hold some birthday money.  The numbers were cut with the Large Numbers Framelits and stand up by themselves with the help of some strips of Window Sheet.  Like the black petals, the numbers have a touch of gold Wink of Stella on them.

I sponged a little Whisper White Craft ink onto the black leaves on the inside of the box.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time
