I am giddy with excitement showing you this card. It has been a labour of love, I needed Brian’s help to sort out the mechanics of it. I can say it’s probably the hardest card I’ve ever designed. That said, it’s really straightforward to make, because I’ve done all the figuring out for you. I’m calling it the Exploding Box Card. You are going to love it! This is how it starts out.

You are going to be so happy when you have made some of these. The are great for all kinds of occasions. As I said in the video I made this for Connor’s 25th birthday and it worked really well. If you are not from the UK and don’t know what size a £10 note is, the inside of the box measures 3″ x 5 1/2″. I’m sure I’ll get questions about the numbers on the card, I’m afraid they are a retired Stampin’ Up! set of dies, currently not available.

I am reliably informed it’s Friday today, so that means its the weekend tomorrow. The weather is good so that’s weeding on the list, and checking the Rhubarb again, I’m sure there will be enough for crumble. I really need to get on with some crochet too, I haven’t had much time this week so I’m a bit behind. Take care of yourself, stay home, and do some crafting!
