Explosion Card

Hello, Everyone! Time for our La La Weekly Wednesday challenge over at La La Land Crafts! Our incredibly talented Elena is our hostess this week and she chose FANCY FOLD as the theme! She would love for you to play along with a card with different folds, not a usual fold card. This might be a challenge for some of you but hey, it is a challenge! LOL But there are lots of tutorials out there so I am sure nothing you guys can't handle!

I've always wanted to make an explosion card and this challenge is PERFECT for me! Thanks, Elena! I found this tutorial a long while ago and finally sat down and made this one. It looks complicated but it's actual not. I think I am going to make a couple more! :D

I used Birthday Lala on my card. I followed the sketch over at Friday Sketchers.

For more inspirations, please check out all the amazing creations from my teamies!
