Easel Box Card

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I hope you are all keeping well!

Today I am flying back home after spending 2 glorious weeks in Florida with my lovely friend Deb.

I have had the most wonderful of time and spoilt rotten!

Looking forward now to catching up with my hubby who I have missed as well as my 2 fur babies.

Another easel box card to share today!

Step by Step

1. Using pearlescent card I cut out 4 4" squares, 2 Stripes 21/8 x7 3/8, and 2 pieces of card measuring 43/4 x 43/4.  
2. I created an easel card measuring 91/2 x 43/4 and scored at 23/8 and 43/4
3. I made the boxes and their sleeves so it looked like a match box and decorated with paper from the Crafter's Companion Times Gone by CD. I then adhered the boxes so on each side there is a little drawer to one of the larger squares, I then attached the other card to the top.
4. I attached the easel card and decorated the card with papers. To act as the stopper I used seam binding and a gem ribbon buckle from Gone Artsy.
5. To finish off I added a lace butterfly distressed with Shaded lilac DI and bling and pearl trim for the box handles.

Many thanks to everyone who has visited my blog and left comments whilst I have been away.
