I saw an explosion card in an edition of Creativity magazine and decided to make it earlier in the year for my brother’s 40th birthday.

Since then I have made quite a few explosion cards and everybody seems to love them.

Here’s my latest makes:-

A 40th birthday card for my brother

For my brother’s 40th birthday I decided to make an explosion card which incorporated some old photos and some facts about the key years in his life.

This was the second attempt – the first seemed to dark.  The papers I’d used were just not right so I scrapped it and started again with some lighter and brighter papers.


I was really pleased with the end results.  I used images of films, songs and TV from the various years which I think looks really cool.
