Exploding box with cake

I have been asked to make this exploding box with a wedding card inside for a friend.

I have used the colour scheme of the wedding. I made the box using the measurements that you will find in the tutorials on my blog. I used navy card on the inside of my box and navy and white patterned paper on the outside of my box.

I printed personalised details including names, date and venue.

I printed the details and die cut them with dies from a set from The Works. I used the next size in the nesting set and navy card to cut elements so I could mount the white card with details.

I added these to each side of the box.

I made the 3D cake using circles and strips of white card.
I added satin ribbon and lace trim around the cake and added small paper flowers on the cake and on to each side of the box. I die cut a scalloped circle with a Xcut die and attached that to the centre of my box and then added the cake. I completed my box with flat backed pearls
