Fortune Cookie Explosion Card

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Maryann Einam our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

Our challenge this week is ......
According to the days of the year calendar it is Fortune cookie day, use this as inspiration to create an oriental themed card.

For my card today I have used Karen Burniston's new Explosion Pop-up die set. I have made a couple of these a few years ago when Karen first introduced this idea in a video tutorial, but having a die set to create the explosion part makes this style of card so easy!!!! You can see Karen's how to video on how to use this die set here

For the challenge part of this card I decided to pull out my Chinese Takeout die set and Good Fortune Clear Stamp set from MFT Stamps. Unfortunately I think these stamps/dies are no longer available, but with a Fortune Cookie Day theme this was the perfect thing for me to use.

I also used the Blocked Parquet die from Tonic Studios Blocked Parquet & Garden Trellis die set. 

Here is another look at my card this time from a different angle. 

For the front of the card I used some of the same elements I used on the inside .... the fortune cookies and the blocked parquet die. I also used Karen Burniston's Crosshatch Ovals die set to layer the fortune cookies.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
