HOW TO MAKE A LARGE EXPLOSION CARD MADE WITH 6X6 DESIGNER SERIES PAPER

I have really enjoyed making these large explosion cards, but wanted to make one using the Flowers for Every Season DSP, which is 6 x 6". Since the original card recipe calls for a piece of DSP that's 5 1/2 x 11, I decided to figure out how to use the 6 x 6 DSP. Acknowledgement goes to Dawn Griffith at Dawn's Stamping Thoughts for the original Large Explosion Card recipe!

Here is the card:

Here is the inside when it's opened:

DIRECTIONS:

Cut and score card base from Magnificent Magenta (Score at 2 3/4" on each end). 

Score one end of 6" DSP at 1/2".  Lay Tear and Tape along this and adhere other 6" piece to it, matching the same pattern on each side. Cut off extra 1/2" on one end of this long piece so seam where papers are attached is in the middle of this long piece. Score at each end (11" side) at 2 3/4".

Now fold top corner of left side to bottom of center seam; fold lower corner of left side to top of center seam; fold top corner of right side to bottom of center seam; fold lower corner of right side to top of center seam.  You should have an X pattern on each side.

Stamp sentiments.

Layer inside sentiment piece on Misty Moonlight mat and adhere to inside of explosion piece.  

Glue back of explosion piece and adhere to center of card.

Glue each side of explosion piece and close sides of card base on each so they adhere to the card base. The inside of the card is done.

Layer the side panels on the Misty Moonlight mat piece and adhere to front.

Glue front white piece to die cut Misty Moonlight layer.

Punch 3 daisies with large Daisy punch. Bend petals slightly up and layer the daisies on top of each other.  Add resin dots to center. Add to front sentiment piece.

Gently fold belly band strip around card and adhere to form the band.  Don't make it too tight.
