What an exciting day this is! I've been invited to be a Guest Designer over at Digital Delights by Louby Loo, and I am thrilled half to death about it! They really have some of the most delightful digital stamps, not to mention wonderful tutorials and so much paper crafting inspiration - it's one-stop shopping for stamps and ideas, and I would recommend you go check them out if you don't already know them - you will love their website!
The stamp that I chose for today's card is Winter Bird, with Warm Winter Wishes as the sentiment.
Note: post is picture heavy today.
This is only the second easel card with drawer I've made, and I learned from Christine Garner's tutorial over at Digital Delights. Her instructions are excellent, practically guaranteeing great results!
I get the biggest kick out of opening and closing the drawer which works perfectly.
I colored the image with Copics, then die cut it and the background layers with various sizes of circle dies. Then I layered the three circles onto a glittered SB Snowflake pendant die cut.
For added dimension, I applied The Rubber Cafe Puffies, a fun puffing medium that's similar to puff paint, but you don't have to let it dry before puffing it with a heat tool - you can do it immediately after applying. In this case, I sprinkled the Puffies with SU Dazzling Diamonds before applying heat so that the trim on the hat would sparkle.
I added two seam binding bows on the top and bottom portions of the card, and from the top bow I hung a little charm that I made.
There's the second bow with the addition of a couple of more tiny jingle bells tied on with some silver metallic craft thread. The sentiment was diecut with SB Grommet Tags and layered onto two layers of SU Framelits - Labels Collection. A couple of blue, glittery brads finished things off.
I would highly recommend that you try one of these cute easel drawer cards. They're very versatile and useful for presenting all sorts of tiny treasures. And they're just plain fun to make!
Thank you for joining me today and here's wishing you a wonderful rest of the holiday week!
