Party Time Drawer Card

Happy Thursday crafters!  Today is my first post for the Crafter's Companion USA blog and I decided to share my favorite type of card, a set of drawers with easel card.  This easy to make card is one of the many fabulous projects featured on the Ultimate Advanced Construction Techniques DVD and I used the Envelobox Creator to create both the card and the Envelobox which holds it.   Once I saw how easy to make it was, I started making them for all different occasions.  Friends and family are always so excited to receive too.  Maybe because it has a little treat inside ;)  I've found that it holds a gift card perfectly too.  

For the main image of my card, I used the new Humphrey Party Time stamp set.  I just love how versatile this cute little elephant is!  I colored him using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and added Stickles to his hat and spots on his overalls. A clown has got to have a little bling.  The fun little banner was cut from the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge, and I added a couple rhinestones to each flag.  The paper is Graphic 45's Le Cirque collection.  

To hold the Easel card up, I added a row of grey pearls to the top of the lower portion of the card.  I stamped the "Party Time" sentiment from the stamp set a few times as well.  I also hand cut a banner shaped image so I could included a personalized message.  A few more pearls on that completed the card.

One of the really cool parts of this project is that you can make a matching thick envelope to match your card.  This one is about an inch in depth and 6 1/4 x 6 1/4 in length.  You can see how I've put the card in it.

I hope you enjoyed this project and are inspired to create something fun and three-dimentional.   

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Anything goes challenge - Polka Dot with a Birthday theme
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes
Cards for Men - Cards for men
Crafty Bloggers Network - anything goes

I'll be back tomorrow with a new kind of card you will definitely want to try!

Have a wonderful day!
