The Box Bomb!

Good evening folks,

i finished this exploding box today and am quite pleased at how it has come out!
It features 4 little mini card sets, all sitting in flush fitting boxes in the center of the cube.
The handmade envelopes repeat the patterns of the designer paper used throughout the whole project.

The 4 sides of the cube all have a pocket, where i have slid in 4 little cards that close up to a flower like shape and hold 4 private and individual messages.
I have used loads of different stamp sets here to create them, it will take me some time to list them all in the shopping list.
This card is decorated with handmade foamiran flowers on he lid, i used red and yellow foamiran and coloured the edges with the cherry cobbler red and the calypso coral ink pads to achieve the ombre look on the petals.

I also made the two guardian angel charms by hand and added them to the flower bouquet on top of the lid, securing them in the bow i tied from the cherry cobbler ribbon.
Here`s my little video about the box:
