Hello friends, Stephanie here today sharing two Winter themed Exploding Box cards I made using a few Doodlebug basics.  I used this cut file and my Silhouette machine as well as some Petite Prints and pattern papers to cut the boxes. I used Sunshine Alphabet stickers to create the greetings inside.   

Here is an up close look at the boxes before opening them and revealing what’s inside.  
For the first box I went with a Birthday theme. I cut a framed scallop circle using Doodlebug’s largest nesting scallop die and a sentiment from the Winter Wonderland Forest Friends stamp set with the cutest Moose (named Bruce) Doodle Pop sticker for the top.  

When you remove the lid from the top, the box “explodes” open revealing a Birthday greeting. The digital cut file has four layers to it (plus the lid), so you could go all out decorating each one, but I kept my layers fairly simple. For my first, bottom layer I used a pretty floral pattern from the Winter Wonderland collection with subsequent layers using coordinating petite prints. I wanted my Happy, Happy Birthday message to be part of the main focal point and I used white and pink Sunshine Alphabet stickers for that.   
Open the tiny blue envelope in the middle to reveal the cute images and final message inside.  

The second box features the cutest yeti and 'Sending Love Your Way' and 'Love You Big Time' messages.  

I think these exploding boxes turned out really cute. My daughter suggested putting little treats inside which would be fun too.  Open the box to reveal treats AND happy little greetings. Well, that does it for my project share. As always, thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
