Sweetness Easel Card With Two Drawers

Good afternoon fellow scrappers!  So I wake up today to find snow flurries slowly coming down.  What happened to Autumn I ask!?  It's like we skipped right over it.  Tsk, tsk, tsk...I'm also going into the stores & all I hear is Christmas about rushing the end of the year!  Whatever happened to just taking time to smell the flowers?  Hmmmm...

Today I bring you a 'sweet' easel card.  This was my very first time creating an easel card.  After browsing Pinterest and seeing how basic easel cards had evolved, I decided to make a more intricate version of an easel card & created one with drawers.  It took me some time to create this--but I got the drawers to work & they actually slide in & out like an actual little dresser!  :-)  Gotta admit I enjoyed making this one.

I've made a tutorial on how I created this easel card.  If interested, feel free to check it out here.

I've used papers from Authentique's 'Sweetness' collection in collaboration with card stock from Core'dinations Whitewash collection which I have dry embossed & sanded down to show off the embossed design.
Here's a top view of the easel card.  The card itself measures about 4" x 6" inches with one drawer measuring 4" x 4" inches & the other measuring 2" x 4" inches.  I've used brads for the drawer knobs.
The digital image is by Tiddly Inks.  She's one of my favorite characters; Wryn.  This image was perfect for the overall theme of this easel card.  I've used the Lacey Ovals die by Spellbinders to frame her along with a string of light pink pearls.

Both the white butterfly & the organza pink start flower shown on the cover are items that are currently available in my Etsy shop.  If interested, you can visit my shop here

Those spots & splatters of white that you see on the embossed whitewash card stock is Chunky Embossing Powder in White by Stampendous.  I'm really liking the effect this chunky embossing powder gives.
With such an intricate card there really wasn't a place to write a message for the recipient.  So I created this mini pocket and adhered it to the back of the easel card.  It holds a single piece of white card stock.  Here you can hand write a sentiment or message for whomever will receive this card.

As for some news--I've recently opened up a second Etsy shop called The Kraft Nook. Nook, Korner, Niche...all synonyms really!  Just me playing with different words to achieve a similar meaning & to connect my two shops in some way.  The Kraft Nook will house any & all ready-to-ship items that I have up for grabs.  This shop will consist of just about everything & anything that I can come up with--cards, altered boxes, mini albums, canvases, wreaths, altered picture's really limitless.  I barely have three items listed so far--but I plan on adding items as I create them.

This easel card was recently listed in my new shop.  You can find it here if interested.

Thanks for stopping by & enjoy the rest of the week!
