White Roses Wedding Explosion Box

I've had this decorative paper for about a month now and have finally had enough of a break to complete a new explosion box with it. It takes me a while to design and new box and not all embellishments I try make it into these that go on my Etsy site. Out of three Cricut designs I tried as embellishments, I ended up using only one mini envelope with coordinating heart card. I duplicated it a few times and used four on the backs of the waterfall layer for two reasons - this left space on the metallic single-sided layers for photos and also they hid the backs of the brads used in the waterfall layer which can damage a metallic finish on the next layer.
I find that the boxes with just a few added embellishments give the customers some help with decorations while leaving them room to add their own touches. There are so many possibilities. I'm hoping to do a video to show the different layers for this box in the next few days. In the meantime, I'll share some pictures with you.
