Scroll down for Measurements. Click HERE to see the process on YouTube. Visit THIS VIDEO to see my inspiration.
Step 1 - The three sizes of cardstock for the inside explosion cards are 8 1/2" square, 5 1/2" square and 4" square
Now score each one of these to fit inside our card and explode when open SEE VIDEO HERE
*Folding starts at 11:00*
Note - The steps for creating the inside explosion is same for all the three cards, just the cardstock measurement differs.
Now your inside explosion is ready.
You can do the stamping and decoration of inside panel after making the above folds or before, completely up to you.
Step 2 - Now you need the cardstock for outside panel/card base.
For the largest 8 1/2" square inside explosion you will need 4 3/2" by 9" and score at 4 1/2"
For the 5 1/2" square inside explosion you will need 3 1/4" by 6" and score at 3"
For the 4" square inside explosion you will need 2 1/2" by 4 1/2" and score at 2 1/4"
These will be our card bases.
Step 3 - Now decorate the inside explosion panel and the outside card base. Once done decorating, use your favorite adhesive to stick the explosion panel inside the card base and your Explosion card is ready...
