Humphrey Explosion Card

Hello everyone. I hope you are having a great week. Here's a wonderful project for Friday. It's a wild card that will "explode" with excitement when the recipient opens it. When completed, it is a 4x4" project that is neatly folded and tied up with a cute bow. Once the bow is removed. It pops open into a long three tier project!

Here's an image to show you what the entire card looks like when opened up, but I have taken lots of smaller detailed images so you can see each of the stamped items.

This project is called an Explosion card and the directions for creating it are given on the Ultimate DVD that comes with your Ultimate tool. The DVD gives a video with simple instructions that will have you making one in just a few minutes.

Here's my image from the top of the card. This stamp comes from the newest released Humphrey stamps called Birthday Conga.

Here's several more photos showing each layer of the card and the wonderful stamps from the Humphrey Birthday Conga set. I used Memento Ink and Copic Markers on this project.

The detail photos show you the additional stamp images as well as beautiful papers used to create the card. I used a Pearlescent paper in purple mixed with a wonderful sheet of matching purple and blue scrapbooking paper from the Fairyopolis Paper Pad.

On the back of the card, I taped the sheer ribbon down with adhesive and then covered the location with a beatiful set of flowers. I could have also used a stamped image or a cute piece of printed paper.

Now, all I have to do to finish this adorable project is make a mini size box for it with my envelobox!

Cheers everyone, Holley
