Happy Holidays everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying the season! Now that I am on vacation for the next two weeks, I sure am (or I will be, once I catch up on my sleep!)
My BFF Kendra showed me another neat card that I just had to try, the exploding box card. She made one this week for a birthday party that her daughter was going to, and the picture of it was so cool, I really wanted to try it myself! As it happened, my daughter also had a birthday party to go to, so it was a good excuse to make one. It is not nearly as complicated as it looks, though embellishing it certainly can be time-consuming. Meredith and I had a lot of fun making this one.
Here is the outside:
I wish I had gotten a picture of the whole present once everything was wrapped. I used a black and white zebra print wrapping paper on the gift box, along with a turquoise ribbon, then this box card was attached to the top. It really looked cute, if I do say so myself!
As I mentioned, I'm off work for 2 weeks- woohoo!! I'm really hoping to have some time to do some crafting. I am making an attempt to clear out my bookmark stash of old designs and come up with some fresh, new designs for my shop. I also want to get some cards done- maybe get a head start on Valentine cards! I have lots of ideas of Valentine cards that incorporate pressed flowers that I am anxious to try. I will be sure to share what I come up with!
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year to all!
