Wham-Bam-Kapow Exploding Box Card!

Happy Friday,
Its a gorgeous day in California, then again when is it not. My neighbor's son recently got back from the hospital, I won't go into the details but he is going to be fine. I made this card for him soon after he got home from the hospital along with a huge tray of lasagna for him and his family.

It is a card that literally explodes out of the box! I found the tutorial online - just google exploding box card. My brother J made the prototype and here is my version of it. Super hero powers for one super cool 10-year old. The best part is that it fits in a A2 envelope. It folds down flat so you can slide that card right in and not worry about additional postage!

I blended the background to create the swirly pattern and infused lots of bright colors for added pop! The superhero dog (from Mama Elephant) is too cute and I just had to include it. Glossy accents was used to highlight the shield along with a fun star sequin.

Here is a closeup of the card.

And of course, how it looks when you pull it out of the A2 envelope.

Have a fabulous weekend,
