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.
