chest of drawers card

I designed this card for my paper flourish lesson this month, and it is deceptively simple, all the ladies managed it with ease.This is the one I tried out at home first to make sure the whole idea would work, so I used what I had on hand in my craft room, for my lesson we had different items poking out of the drawers, and instead of the brads I used for the drawer handles we used Craftworks candi.The cardstock used here was Stampin Up pink piroutte and whisper white, and scraps of lace, ribbon and bling used to hang out of the drawers. The interesting bit is how to get the legs – I used a spellbinders labels 17, and positioned it on the folded cardstock so that just the top bit is on the card.When run through the cuttlebug it cuts through both thicknesses of card, and just cuts the top part of the shape which looks like legs on the drawers. I imagine lots of uses for this card – it would be great as a new baby card, and you could do it in blue for a boy.Instead of a top drawer you could stamp cup images etc and put a piece of acrylic over the top to resemble a glass door- a great kitchen tea card… any more ideas?For today, I am still doing a rather large order – almost finished, then onto creating some new ideas for my september and october classes, which of course will be all about christmas. Til tomorrow….
