40th Birthday Exploding Box

Another exploding box for an order. Something more modern was called for, so decided to use Pink Petticoat papers and images. The box it'self with it's gorgeous cut out swirls was given me by my friend Debbie who has a great website that should be of interest to everyone especially those with cutting machines like KNK or Craft Robo. She has some fab things on her site for download and is well worth a visit. Click here to visit Debbies site.
The box was cut out of white linen card and all PP backing papers were printed onto pink Stardream paper., as was the tiny handbag in the centre. The PP images were coloured using mainly Sakura pens. The flowers were cut on my KNK out of the same pink Stardream and the leaves from some silver paper I had in my stash. Flowers and leaves were embossed to give them shape, attached and then decorated with gems and ribbon from my stash. The icing on the cupcakes and other cakes was done with Diamond Stickles. The sentiment was cut on my KNK using the same pink and silver paper.
