A Bed in a Card!

Morning everyone!

Well, it is my turn over at Top Tip Tuesday to do this weeks tutorial.  I chose to do an exploding box tutorial as I had never made one before but the time had come for me to make one...you will see why further down!!

This weeks challenge is:


It is that time of year for weddings so lets start spreading the love!!

Anyway, back to my creation....I got contacted from a lady in Holland who wanted to have a wedding card made for her to put money in for her friends wedding.  They were asking for donations to put towards a new bed so the lady asked me if I could somehow get a bed on the card.  Now, I don't do stamped images so I came up with the next best thing....putting a BED IN the card!!

Here it is:
I would also like to enter my box into the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes #76 - Stitching - Mine is faux on each panel
Diecut Dreams #93 - 3 shapes, 2 colours, 1 ribbon I have used square, rectangle, circle, 2 colours are white and grey, 1 ribbon is the huge bow!
A Spoonful of Sugar #159 - Sewing - Mine is faux on each panel
Divas by Design #5 - Diecuts - my punch edges, my tag
4 Crafty Chicks - Stitching - Mine is faux on each panel
Totally Papercrafts - Bingo I have chosen Diecuts (tag), Embossing (outside wall of box), Ribbon (huge bow)
One Stop Challenge #138 - Tag You're It! - got on on my inner flap!

Hope you like it!  I have used huge measurements rather than teeny tiny ones, so if you want to see how to make my larger style exploding box - please check here for the tutorial!

Hope to see you at Top Tip Tuesday this week!
