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 joaniscardsmadebyhand.blogspot.com.
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 saturated-canary.myshopify.com. I'm sure you will love them too!
