Poinsettia Exploding Box

Hello, two posts in two days things are looking up in Blogland for me.  Such a cold and windy day today and my day off work too.  I looked after my little 8 month old Grandaughter, Zara for part of the day, she is so beautiful and such a good baby, a pleasure to look after. 

Today I have an exploding box which I gave to my mother-in-law instead of a Christmas card. 

The red glitter poinsettia was made using a Marianne Creatable die (the same one I used for the gold poinsettia) but I cut 3x large and 1x small, I used Glossy Accents to stick the glitter then cut all petals apart and glued them to a small circle to build up the flower, not sure it that makes sense, it was time consuming but worth it. 

This was my first attempt at an exploding box and I thoroughly enjoyed  every minute of it and I know I will be making many more. 

The gold and the glitter do not show up so well on the pictures but were beautiful in real life.

I think you can just about see that the white card is embossed.

 I would like to enter this box into the following challenges. Christmas Treat or Gift Packaging - Colours of Christmas - Glitter  - Anything goes

Kenny K - Christmas Hottie

Hello - not had chance to post for a few days as I have been busy with a family weekend away and trying to get on top of my wrapping, We have 7 children plus their partners, plus their children, plus nieces, nephews, sisters, brothers, mums, Uncle Tom Cobble and All, so it takes me for ever to shop and wrap all the presents, shopping nearly finished and wrapping started but far from finished, I will get there

Today I have a card for my nephew today using Kenny K's Christmas Hottie, I am sure he will be pleased with this.  Coloured with Promarkers.
I have coloured a few of these digi images so they will be showing up on more cards when I get chance to post them.

I did a concertina fold on the card - the paper are Bo Bunny - Father Christmas papers, and the snowflake die is a Marianne Creatables. 

The christmas tree die cut I bought off eBay. 

Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy the rest of your week.

I am entering this card into the Promarkers Challenge - Week 129–Mega Christmas challenge
