Four drawer easel card

Hi all!!

Hope you are well wherever you are! February is about to end and soon its time for the blog candy draw. If anyone is still interested please feel free to join. I always appreciate your visits and lovely friendship!! You can see the candy post here. As I already said, in addition to the winners news, I have another good news to share with you. Please do check in the first week of March.

Now onto my card. This is going to be a little longer than my usual short posts :)

I've never tried many types of cards, except easel card and some few fold cards. I always stick to the normal card making, which I myself got bored!! :) So for a change, I tried an Easel card with four drawers.And tried to make the card as much as shabby chic as possible.

As you can see I kept on adding flowers till I was satisfied and the center white flower is the lace flower hand made, which I mentioned in previous post.

Now with the drawers opened, (a special waiting for you:) )

its yummy chocolates sitting inside each draw :).

The candies in one of the drawers  have gone inside while I was the taking picture :). Hope you can see a small quilled cupcake on the left side.

Here's a closer look at it:

Now the card closed:

The other side:

Some details of the materials that have been used
Dcvw French Country Paper stack and Lucky Season paper pad.
Flowers-lace flower hand made, other flowers store bought.
Corner charms and antique  key charm
brads and laces
Die cuts
Stamps: Inkadinkado
Prima Engraver crystals

I must frankly give a special mention to the white self adhesive fabric tape from Lulupu store,used here. Its simply superb!! For a lace lover like me, the first thing came to my mind when I saw self adhesive fabric tape was, how can a lace be self adhesive!! But I must say, that I was overwhelmingly satisfied and have used one full roll for this card. Simply I couldn't stop using!! :). This is my honest opinion!.

Thank you for your sweet visits and lovely comments. Entering this for the:

  15. Thats a lot of work in that card but loved every bit of it :)

  16. Sarah, I couldn't find an email for you so I am answering your question here about the sponge I used to put on the gesso, my craft store sells small sponges in the art department and I cut them down to small pieces but other girls use a paint brush. Just make sure you wash off your stamp and anything else you use with the gesso right away so it doesn't harden on there, thanks for stopping by and your comments

  17. Wow Sarah ! This is fabulous ! Love the lace and flowers and the key is a lovely addition ! Beautifully made !

  18. Your card came out gorgeous! Thank you for leaving such a sweet comment on our apothecary jar post. I am now following along too! :)

  19. P.S. We also have a homemaking link up on Mondays if you would like to join in ~
