Take a look at our reader testers’ makes this month!
Alison Walker Tell us about your drawer easel card!
Instead of jewellery, I used a box of chocolate sticks with a ready-made drawer as the base for my gift easel card – teamed with papers and bunnies from NitWit Collections. Printables are great when you’re in a hurry, as you know it all coordinates! What did you enjoy about the project?
I actually enjoyed maths at school, so it was fun figuring out the geometry for the display part of the easel card. I made my own greeting with a set of alphabet stamps, so I could finish it perfectly. How did you find this project? Karen Walsh I enjoyed it, as it was a bit out of the ordinary for me! I decided to go for a simple easel card for my make. I did a lot of stamping on this card, which I don’t normally do! What techniques did you use?
I thought it would be nice to add the die-cut trellis across the top, so I inked the card before covering the join with my layering, then added my stamped topper. I finished by making a bracelet. Sally Sears What did you think about this project?
I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly this dear little easel card came together. You just need to follow the measurements carefully – a scoring board makes it easy to get crisp folds. This project would make a little gift look extra special, or you could just pop some money in the drawer. What did you use to make your card?
I’ve used a little key and keyhole brad for the drawer. The frames are part of a die set – I’ve coloured them with ProMarkers and rubbed them over with a little silver gilding wax.
