I made this card as a challenge in a swap group I belong to - the theme last month was to make and explosion card for our partner.
I chose an older style of explosion design. Here is a tutorial.
The patterned paper was part of an old sheet and I have no idea of the brand!
I added lace both inside and out
The ink I used is Sugarloaf by Whisper.
I used it to stamp the outside sentiment and the inside swirls - both stamps were from a magazine freebie set. The edges of the patterned paper were distressed and also sponged with the ink.
