Love You My Son and Exploding Boxes

Hi! My friends I have some projects I would like to share. First is a card using MO's Digital Pencil Digi Image, Paul Texting.

My card is following the TCM sketch for January/February for the layers behind the image. I'm using papers from Echo Park Happy Days and Be Mine collection and kraft card. All the edges are distressed with Rusty Hinge. The sentiment, the black diamond border and red/white dots border are stickers from Echo Park Happy Days and Be Mine collection as well. I stick them onto the kraft card to be easier for me to manipulate. The heart is from Hero Arts - Trio Hearts and stamped onto a kraft card. Added red gems on the sides.

Here is a side view of the card.

Here are my other projects, 3 exploding boxes. I actually still have to make 3 more for kids. I just want to share this now so not to make it photo heavy.

Here is the first box. Using papers from Echo Park Spring Time.

This is how to box looks like when you remove the lid. The next photos will show you some of the panels.

Here is one of the panel using Hero Arts - Trio Hearts and I added gems.

This is a sentiment from Tech Tues Ali Edwards - Loving Words. Added some ready made 3d stickers.

Here is my paper rosette with rose gem.

I made use of the alpha stickers from EP-BE mine and placed them on the back side of some of the panels.

Here is my second box. Papers are from Echo Park Be Mine. 

This is how the box looks like when the lid is removed. There are 4 springy butterflies using Fiskar Butterfly stamp.

Here is my third box using Echo Park - Sprintime papers. To make the colors pop I used a golden yellow shimmery cardstock for the box as well as the ribbons and punched borders.

Here is the box when opened. I love it when the papers have different colors since you can also use different colors on your accessories. 

That's all for today and going back to continue making those 3 more boxes.
