Mother's Day Explosion Box

I created the attached with 5 cut out layers from a circuit cartridge.  Die cut flowers, leaves and lovely in expensive hearts from Range.  Using various adhesives I put all the elements together.
Fabulous Fellas Sports Happy Birthday Card

1. I used the Fabulous Fellas CD Rom and papermill white smooth card to print my card on my inkjet printer.

2. Then I cut out all the shapes for the card and the sentiment I had selected.

3. Then using Crafters Companion Collall 3D Glue Gel I decoupaged the sports shop display.

4.  Then I scored the sides of the card and glued them together with Crafters Companion Red Liner Tape.

5.  Then I used Crafters Companion Collall All-Purpose Glue to glue on the insert on the back of the box.

6.  Today I delivered the card in person to the recipient who loved the card and immediately said it needed to take centre placing on the display unit.

Football Card

I made this by card by:

1. I selected an A4 sheet of green card from papermill and embossed the paper in a Crafters Companion e-bosser.

2. Using the Ultimate Crafters Companion Pro I embossed a straight line vertical across the middle
     of the landscape card so I had an A5 size card.

3.  Selecting the appropriate card, die and sandwich of plates I cut the following die shapes using my
     Crafters Companion Craftwell eBosser die cutting & embossing machine:
  • Happy and Birthday from Joanna Sheen Signature Dies on red card from papermill.
  • Alphabet Deco letters for the name from Tattered Lace on red card from papermill
  • Football from Tattered Lace on black card from papermill
  • Football from Tattered Lace on Crafters Companion White Centura Pearl card
4.  I selected an A4 sheet of Crafters Companion Snow White - Hint of Silver - Centura Pearl A4 
     Printable Card and then I put  my die, the Tattered Lace Football Die on the sheet. I then drew
     round the outside edge of the die and cut out a circle from the card then using the elements from
     the black and white card I created the football.
5.  Then using my Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Grand Squares I cut the following :
  • 4" Grand Square using Crafters Companion Snow White card,
  • 4½" Grand Square using Paper mill black card and
  • 5" Grand Square using Paper mill red card
6.Then using Crafters Companion collall glue I matted and layered the squares and glued the football on top of the squares. I then added the die cut alphabet deco letters for Connor and attached the topper to the lower half of the card.  I then applied the Happy Birthday to the top half of the card.
