Hello again and welcome dear friends... this is the 3rd and final project I created for Heartfelt Creations DT Call'22.
I created this Explosion box with love theme, yet with a variant in the colors than the usual reds and pinks. The flowers are created using foamiran sheets this time as I wanted to create all 3 of my projects which differ each other in their form as well as the flower materials used.
Sharing the instructions below, to create this project along with the materials used.Create a 4 by 4" explosion box on ivory card stock. Add pattern papers on each of the sides that are trimmed to 1/8" less than than the sides. Create a lid for the explosion box using the pattern paper itself and add coordinating lilac color satin ribbon along the sides of the lid. Cut 4 pieces each of the smallest of Rounded Window Frames die and the Intricate Swirl Frames die, sponge the edges using cactus flower ink and adhere them on each of the sides of the base. Cut 2 consecutive circles with ivory card stock, to the smaller circle - add green moss powder to create green grass effect and set it for drying. Once dried, layer this with the larger circle piece and adhere it to the inner center of the base. Assemble the chipboard pieces of couples, bridge and the lantern and adhere it on top of the green moss.
Cut several of the images of the birds, Wisteria vines, sentiments and tags from the pattern paper pack, distress each of them using cactus flower ink and stack 2 images each with dimensional foam tape. Cut 2 pieces each of medium sized plain heart and eyelet heart die cuts on ivory card stock, distress with cactus flower ink, stack them using dimensional foam tape and adhere on 2 of the opposite sides. Similarly on the other 2 sides, adhere the tag die cuts with dimensional foam tape.
For the lid, die cut 1 circle piece with the pattern paper and a slightly larger
scallop piece on ivory card stock, distress them with cactus flower ink and adhere
them stacking with dimensional foam tape.
Die cut several of the medium and small sized Wild Rose flowers with white foam sheets, color the edges of each petal with cactus flower ink, heat them slightly by the help of hot iron box and shape them. Stack 2 large and 1 small petal for each flowers and add stamens in the center. Die cut several of the Wisteria flowers with pink and white foam sheets. Color the edges of the pink flowers using violet ink, shape all of these flowers and add pollens in the center. Stamp several images of the Oakberry Lane leaves on floral paper using olive green ink, color them using leaf green ink, cut using the coordinating dies and shape them.
Arrange all the elements along with the flowers, leaves and vines on each of the flaps adding a sentiment piece besides them. Similarly arrange the flowers, leaves and sentiment, glue them on the lid and the inner center as shown in picture.
