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.
