Special Order Card in a Box

Hi Stampers, sorry I’ve been MIA so much lately.  Just because I haven’t been blogging as much, doesn’t mean I’m not making lots of cards.  I guess I just get a bit discouraged when I don’t get comments and assume nobody is reading my posts…  So, any little comment you could leave may go a long way in making me post more often.

Today’s card is a card in a box explosion card that I made as a special order for a co-worker.  He met his girlfriend on an online website (the back image is the logo from that website).  The heart is half American flag  (he’s American) and half Russian flag (she’s Russian). The words on one side are the first he ever typed to her and the words on the other site are the first she ever typed to him.  How cute is that???

liuba-backThis was a fun card to make and he loved it!  He says she loved it as well.  So, that makes me very happy!  You can see more about how to make my explosion box card and find a video and PDF tutorial on a previous post.

Here is a link to my PDF instructions and I also have a YouTube video (caution, the sound is a little low and one measurement I mention wrong – but have pop up words with the correction. Be easy on me, it was my first EVER YouTube video.)

This card used Rich Razzleberry ink and the Flower Shop stamp set by Stampin’ Up!  I also used the Heart, Pansy, Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly punches by Stampin’ Up!

Happy Stamping,
