Easel Box Card

Today I have been playing with my blog header for hours.  I've created two different headers, tried them both out and decided on this one.  I created it using a blog header template from a digital scrapbook web site called Scrap Girls  I combined pieces from two different template kits...Blog Banner Layout Template Centered and Embrace both by Keri Schueller.  I used a digital paper pack from Sweet Shoppe Designs called You Make Me All I Was Ment To Be by Lauren Grien. 

Now for my post of the day...I've seen a few different Easel Box Cards while viewing other blogs and really liked them.  I finally found "how to" instructions on Joanie McDonald's web site

I love how it's an Easel Card (one of my favorite cards to make) on top of a drawer/box.  I made this for my niece's 19th birthday and wanted to add a little something inside the drawer/box.  I cut a couple fancy squares, added a Birthday Sentiment, decorated with a cute flower that I made and stamped/colored a swirly corner.  She loved it! (Of course I also added a little special something $$$ that you don't see in the pictures).

I used another Saturated Canary Digital on this project...I love, love, love using them on my cards.  They are great because I can re-size them to fit any project I am working on and they are so darn cute.  I've used them for all kinds of projects...Bulletin Boards, Picture Frames, Presents and of course lots of cards.  Check them out at the Saturated Canary web site  I'm sure you will love them too!
