Technique Squad Blog Hop – Exploding Card

This month we are featuring the Exploding Card Technique. I watched videos from Mixed Up Craft, Annie’s Crafts, and Creating with Kristina. None of the videos were exactly what I wanted so I extrapolated and created my own. I wanted one that had all the layers of Mixed Up Craft but easy to modify like Annie’s Crafts.

My cardbase is 4 1/2″ x 10 7/8″ scored at 5 3/8″ and 5 1/2″. The explosion paper needs to be the length of the cardbase minus the 1/8″ score so it’s 10 3/4″ square. (In case you want to create your own in a different size.

    JoAnn, your card is so beautiful on the front using the lilac color theme and our Try Stampin’ on Tuesday sketch, but then the inside exploding feature REALLY made your card something special!! Thank you for sharing the “how to” step-by-step photos on your post. You’ve inspired me to tackle one of these kind of fun fold cards!!! -Donna
