Gingerbread house exploding box


I have used a Crafters Companion Exploding box die set to cut the elements in white card. I matt and layered the panels with kraft card and polka dot card. I printed personalised sentiments and cut them with dies from a nesting set from The Works. I die cut the other sentiments with Sue Wilson dies in kraft card and white card and attached them creating s drop shadow. I die cut the gingerbread house with a Tonic die set in kraft card with white and red elements. I added snowflakes which I cut with a Cheery Lyn die. I added satin ribbon around the box lid to complete the creation.
