I made this exploding box for a friend and ex colleague who retired this summer. She is moving to Spain so she is making huge changes to her life.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the Rennie Mackintosh Rose designs ( files purchased from Silhouette America)
I have long admired the designs of Mackintosh and own a couple of his style in stamps. I also own the computer font. I used this include some quotes that I felt that were relevant to her situation.
I used white card to cut the files and then used Promarkers to colour - so much quicker than using different colours of card. The base card is textured with a gold sheen.
Since I took these photos, I have added a thin strip of black card to the sides of the lid. This made a much neater finish.
