MAY 4-10

Pop Up Explosion Box Card!
This card was made for the Anything Goes Challenge at Paper Smooches

 I have been wanting to try the box card technique and thought it paired nicely with the Great Chemistry stamp set from Paper Smooches.

When you open the flaps of the card this is what you see first. 

The images have been fussy cut and colored with Copics. Glossy Accents, Crackle and Wink of Stella were used on the glass bottles. A few of the the pieces were attached with acetate. The "mad scientist" is on a wobble and his eyes also wiggle!

This is the back of the card when it's closed!

Thanks for looking!
