My First Explosion Box

I think this just came out so cute! I made this for my cousin Shirley and her boyfriend Jason who just bought a house together. I think it is the perfect card/box for the occasion. Oh and her favorite color is green :)

I love the little details I put into this box like the house, windows, welcome mat, green felt for grass and my absolute favorite the "sold" sign. The flowers were made by a friend. I need to start purchasing punches to make these little flowers!

You can find the template for the house at Amy's SVG's. It's a little box meant for candies but I attached it to the felt which I then glued down to the base of the box. I made my own roof, windows, door, porch and glued it on.

 

  

  

  

 This is the back of the house.

  

 

I can't wait to make more exploding boxes...I already have some ideas. I tell you I have so many projects I want to get done but so little time. My brain just keeps going and going and going...

Thanks for all the comments. Sheryl, I didn't use a cartridge. I used a file for the house from Amy's SVG's, her link is on my post.
