An Explosive Wedding Card

Morning.  I do hope you are all up and ready for an explosive challenge over at Back to Basics and Beyond.  This was a new one on me.  It's an explosion card.  The outside looks totally normal but, when you open it, the inside explodes open.  You are going to need a tutorial for this, if you are anything like me.  I'm useless at them so here's good old You Tube to the rescue.  It never fails to amaze me what you can learn on that channel. Patrick learned to play guitar from watching it.  He rings me up to play songs down the phone to me.  I have a long list of songs I want him to learn but I'm not having much luck persuading him.

Anyway, I digress - as usual.  I recently attempted to tidy the old craft room so I have found loads of old stuff I had forgotten about.  I've got a box full of toppers that I'd cut out  and put to one side 'for later'.  Well, slightly later than later, I've gotten around to using some fuzzy moon wedding images.  I've popped them on the front of the card and used the same paper for my 'explosive' interior.  Rather than stamp the sentiment, I used a die cut and added some hearts randomly around the folds.  Not sure the die cut will stand the test of time but I thought I'd try it.

What do you think?

Sorry about the quality of the photos.  I couldn't really scan the inside of the card.  I'm hoping you get the idea, along with the urge to have a go yourself.  Please join the fun.

Thanks for reading.

Love Dawn x
