This is such a terrific project and the photo really doesn't do it justice. I was rushing out the door with this in my hand and remembered I needed to take a photo. I made this wonderful Matchbox Easel Card for my SIL's birthday last Wednesday. I was so lucky to receive it in kit form from Kaye who was part of the Craftmad get together. You can see a couple more examples here on Kaye's blog "Crafty Kayes Room."
The top section is a regular easel card adorned with beautiful papers, flowers, bird and bird cage. This kit was so perfect for my SIL as she loves purple. I really liked all the layers of the flowers. The bottom section is created by placing four matchbox boxes around the edges then adding a top and bottom to the boxes to hold them all in place. Who knew there was a matchbox die....not me. Kaye used her matchbox die to cut all the pieces for the four matchboxes that I made up. This die has now shot to the top of my 'need' list. As I was googling to find out who sold such a die I saw so many wonderful projects for it. A couple of years behind the trend, I know but still so much fun. Finished by adding some Cadbury Roses chocolates to each little drawer.
Wishing you all a terrific day and thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. It is raining here today and the gardens and yard are yelling out 'Thanks'. So inside jobs for me today. :-)
