Thanks for sharing. I think i watched this before but forgot to leave a comment. Have you ever added a glitter element to one of these before? So the glitter explodes out of the card when the recipient opens the card.

Dear Proudmoms, I haven't added glitter, but that's a great idea. Or maybe some type of streamers. If you try something like that, I'd love to see it.

Proudmoms said...

I will do that. I doubt it will be anytime soon.

Awe I got it wrong it's called a confetti Flinger Card a video of one being made is here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88XyQx_y5lU I think this could be something that could be incorporated into a explosion card
