A little box of drawers and a card


I made this little box of drawers and card for a friends birthday and after I posted it I remembered I had not taken a photo, so Zoe kindly took some and emailed them to me, thanks Zoe photos are great.

One of my favourite stamps is Maribel by Stampelglede. I have stamped her on stambord and coloured her with distress inks, mounted on to K&Co paper that came in a 12x12 pad. The tutorial for the box by the talented Kirsten can be found here The flower is a punch form EK Success , sprayed with glimmer mist and edged with Stickles, I also added a few MS micro beads and a chipboard heart. The drawer knobs are Tims hitch fasteners from his Ideology range. I know Zoe loves it and it is one of my favourite makes and not too difficult to do

The stamp I used for the card is from Stampers anonymous a which I embossed in white detail EP and sponger over with worn lipstick distress ink to show up the white and the heart is Tims grunge board die cut and ink with teh same ink and I went over the pattern with gold stickles
Thanks for looking xx
