Hi, Henriëtte here today sharing my first project with the new "Radiance" collection.
I love this collection, it's so cheerful with beautiful summer colors.
The matching flowers and chipboards are perfect for my project: an exploding box.
The box is made from white cardstock.
I covered all the sides with the Radiance patterned papers.
On the lid I also glued a paper doily, 3 flowers, a ephemera piece and
2 chipboard butterflies.
I heat embossed the chipboard butterflies with starry night blue embossing powder.
I thought they were a bit to blue so I added another layer of white embossing powder.
After doing that they were soft blue and matching the papers very well.
I decorated the inside with more ephemera and "blushing blooms" chipboards.
I made the centerpiece by cutting a styrofoam ball in half and glueing white lace around the base.
I added lots of pink and white flowers and two heat embossed butterflies.
It looks like they are flying.
I took a small strip of acetate and bent the top and bottom so I could
glue it on the butterfly and on the styrofoam ball between the flowers.
From a distance you cannot see the acetate strips.
It's a very bright and sunny exploding box.
I hope you like it also.
