Nan birthday exploding box

I was asked to make a card for a Nan and Mam on the same card for a lady that loves cake.

I had this paper pack so I thought an exploding box with a cake in the centre was ideal.

I have made the box using the instructions you will find under tutorials on my blog.

I covered all panels with the cake and tea patterned paper. I die cut various elements to add to the box and made a cake for the centre. I printed to personalised sentiments to add to the box
