Celebrate The Moments of Your Life and an Explosion Box

Hello everyone! Today I would like to share two projects that I have created as part of my entry into the Maja Designs June Mood Board competition.

I have pondered over this for a little while and I finally came up with something....a card and an exploding box. I have made exploding boxes in the past but I wanted to tackle a cake!! I have a lot of photos to share, so I explain things as I go.

I really like the sentiment of this's vintage and I liked the message. I used a tag from on of the papers as I liked the image of the elegant lady. I just added some lace and foam tape to add some dimension.

The front of the box uses the same paper as the card. I initially made the box first, then the cake and finally the card. I just loved this collection of papers.

I really liked this quote and used it on one of the panels. It fits in well with the mood board theme.
Here is a close up of the cake. I had purchased a file on how to make one, but I adapted it when I made a mock one. I used Spellbinder circle dies and tweaked the instructions to fit my designs. The left over cake papers were used to create the hearts on the other panels of the box. I added flowers, pearls. lace and die cut leaves to embellish.

It took a while to get here but I had a lot of fun along the way!
