80th Birthday Exploding Card

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 

Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the project and will take a look at the video tutorial as well.  Recently I went on a lovely trip to Ireland for a big family party. My lovely Aunty Sally was 80 so I had to make a very special card. I have made exploding box cards before and this was I really loved making. 

Nigezza Creates With Stampin' Up! Exploding Box 80th Birthday Card using Daisy Punch

Measurements and Materials

  • Card size when collapsed 7" x 5"
  • One sheet of Crumb Cake card stock 
  • Score on the long side @ 2 1/2" - 5" - 7 1/2" - 10"
  • Score on the short side @ 4"
  • Trim the card stock down to 7" x 10 1/2"
  • The long strip will be cut in half and then 4 strips will be made 
  • The strip will be trimmed to 1/2" either side of the score lines
  • This will make 4 supports that will be stuck across the box which is what the decorations will be attached to.
  • 1/4" strips of different shades of green cardstock were cut to stick the flowers
  • I used Gingham DSP for the mats to decorate the box
  • 4 for the bottom of the box - 3 3/4" x 2 1/4"
  • 6 for the top flaps - 2 3/4" x 2 1/4"
  • For the back of the box I used Whisper White Cardstock, one on the back to write your message and one on the inside to decorate, they also add strength to the box
  • Whisper White crd stock 6 3/4" x 2 1/4"
  • I used 
  • Daisy Punch
  • Medium Daisy Punch
  • 1/2" circle Punch
  • 1" circle Punch
  • Leaf Punch
  • Colour Family 6" x 6" DSP packs
  • Well Written Dies

Now watch the video tutorial to see how this was made :-)
