Musical Christmas Exploding Box

Hello blog friends, I've made another exploding box using Musical Christmas from the latest Christmas release. I love making these, they're time consuming, but the end result is just so impressive! 
Here's the outside, all closed up in a pretty package.


And when you slide off the top, voila! A little holiday scene and floating snowflakes pop out at you. 



I decorated little die cut pine trees with gold tinsel and red pearls. 



The poinsettias are cut from vellum using a Spellbinders die, sponged with a bit of color before assembling.



The snowflakes are a SU die strip, frosted with German glass glitter and attached to thin strips of acetate.


I can't wait to send this to a very special person this Christmas!
Thanks for looking, I appreciate all the wonderful comments.

  12. What an ambitious project. But SO VERY LOVELY!

    I just received notice that I have been published in the Winter 2011 Take Ten magazine. I used a LOTV stamp image for my card creation. Check it out on page 47 of this issue!

  13. Truly inspirational but suspect you're certainly right on the time it takes to create & the workload, but equally on the enjoyment of the recipient in getting it. Really wish I had a friend like you making my cards that's for sure!!
