I made this Explosion box for the swap hosted By Laura Lauralsattic. I decided to build my explosion box from scratch using card stock and chipboard. I used my old Tim Holtz Village dies to make the house and the greenhouse. I used the mini texture folders to create the stone and wood texture. The snow is distress grit paste snowfall with a combination of Renea Bouquet glass glitter and Distress Rock Candy. I painted all of the inside pieces using a combination of paint and ink. The winter poetry fragments are mostly from an Allison Bomber stamp set. Outside papers are from a Pion paper collection. The beautiful chipboard on top is Renea bouquet beautiful board. Love the way it looks when I embossed it. I am linking to the new Village dieset even though I used my old BigZ dies that are now discontinued. The new ones have many more options for windows. I used sheets of mica to cover the windows in the greenhouse. One of the last photos shows the back of the houses while it was a work in progress so you can see the windows. I just forgot to take photos of the sides and back after it was finished. Each side of the exterior has different winter scenes from the Pion paper.

Thanks for looking. I appreciate your comments. This was a labor of love. Robbie is an amazing swap partner and I wanted to make something nice for him.
