My Pink Stamper is having a design team call for 2 open spots! I'm giving it a whirl with her pink, brown, and green color challenge. You can also choose one other color, I used a creme. A friend of mine is having a baby girl and wanted a creative way to share the baby's gender with family. So, I made a cupcake explosion box using my new-to-me (and current favorite) New Arrival cartridge.
The outside of the box - uses only brown, green and creme to keep it gender neutral. Each side has a green, scallop square with a letter in the word "baby" to resemeble blocks. These were cut at 3 1/4". I cut the "new arrival" using the circle feature key at 3" and put a piece of brown cardstock behind it. I punched the rim of the lid with my threading water Friskars punch and tied with green shimmery ribbon. Then..
When the lid is lifted ~ the box "explodes" revealing the pink cupcake and embellished inside! Surprise!
I am loving this pink, green, and brown combination ~ thanks Robyn for the color inspiration!
Here are a few close ups - all center cuts were done at 2 1/4", matted on a 2 1/2" creme circle, and layered on a 3 1/4" pink scallop circle.
All pieces of the box include brown or white faux stitching.
The last 2 sides, I brought to life with some super cute Peachy Keen "baby face" stamps at 3/8".
The onsie is my favorite!
Once the cupcake is removed, in case you haven't realized it from all that pink ~ "It's a girl!!"
Thanks for stopping by today. Good luck to everyone who is entering!
