Anyway, prepare for a LOT of photos.... my niece's confirmation is on sunday, and I've spent hours making her a card. And I've loved every minute of it.
For the first time I've tried to make an explotion-box, hence the abundance of pictures.... The box measures 4 x 4 inches.
Lots of flowers from WOC. I've sprayed them with glimmermist-pearl. Stamp from Stempelglede. Butterfly-die from Magnolia. Pearl-string from Kort og Godt. I don't remeber where I bought the cross-charm...You can barely spot a doily behind the flowers... :p
One of the sides. Swirl and a metal-butterflie bought at Hjerteboden. The metal-embellishment on the lid are made from three different metal-pieces: The back, leaves and the flower. Added a white pearl in the middle. All sides of the lid have the same embellies. I've punched the lid with a MS-punch and used a white lace behind the metal embellies.
Two of the sides. A metalcorner and die from Magnolia. The oposide sides look the same as these two.
When I take off the lid, this is how it looks. I made three layers. The first layer all have wonderful sentiments from Lili of the Valley. I've made hearts using spellbinder dies. The butterflies are from MS-punch.
The box inside the box... :) Lots of roses from WOC on this lid too, plus a couple of charms, pearl string from WOC, and leaves from a Cheery-Lynn die. I've put stickles - cotton candy, platinum and waterfall on the leaves. On the sides I've put a flower from a Magnolia-die and a white pearl. All the flowers are sprayed with glimmermist - marshmallow.
The lid is off. This is where she'll find the money-gift ;)
Close-up of the first layer. I've put liquid pearls - white opal and platinum around the hearts. Stickles - waterfall og the blue butterfly, and stickles - cotton candy on the pink butterfly.
Close-up of the second layer. No embellies here, and I've stamped four different sentiments directly on the designpaper on this layer.
Close-up of the third layer. I've stamped sentiments on three of them, and left space to write a personal greeting on the fourth. Liquid pearl - white opal and platinum around the heart. I've sprayed the butterflies with glimmermist - marshmallow.
The papers used are the new "vintage summer basics" from Maja Design (I absolutely LOVE these papers!), plus pink, blue and white cardstock. Inked all the edges with vintage photo, and sentiments are stamped with archival ink - jet black.
