Drawer Card

Good morning! It's Wednesday and time for a Heartfelt Creations project, today I have this drawer card I designed with some of the new stamps from their "New Life" collection released earlier this month.  This is my first try at making one of this type of cards and I loved it.  I used the template from this thread at SCS, which made the whole process of making it so much easier.  Don't forget to check out all the fantastic projects over at the HFC blog.  Have a great day and thanks for visiting.

Make drawers and sleeves following the instructions on the template with kraft cardstock, ink edges of drawers and sleeves with walnut stain distress ink, cut pieces of patterned paper and adhere to front and back or drawers and to 1 side each of the sleeves.  Cut 2 pieces of chipboard, paint one side with acrylic paint, cut and adhere patterned paper to the other side, same for both pieces.  Adhere the drawers to the painted side of the chipboard, one piece for the bottom and one for the top, as pictured.  For the knobs of the drawers I used a bead and a head pin, with a needle tool make a centered hole and insert the head pin holding the bead, apply some Zip Dry glue to the bottom of the bead, bend the head pin parallel to the cardstock and cover with a piece of coordinating cardstock, this will secure the bead nicely in place.  Decorating top of project, cut a piece of green patterned paper, ink edges, cut a piece of coordinating patterned paper, stamp "Stained Glass Background" with embossing ink and heat emboss, ink edges and adhere to green paper, add brands to each corner as pictured and adhere to base.  Cut a strip of green patterned paper, punch bottom edge with border punch, cut a slighter larger piece of brown patterned paper and punch border, ink edges and adhere as pictured.  Die cut and emboss the "Decorative Oval Window" from brown patterned paper, cut the center pieces with scissors.  Stamp the 3 Crosses image from the "Easter Lilies" set on white cardstock with Versa Magic ink, stamp the sentiment from "Decorative Vintage Cross" with embossing ink and heat emboss, use the diecut you cut earlier of the oval window to trace the outer edge on the stamped piece of cardstock, cut with scissors, ink edges and adhere to the window diecut as pictured.  Stamp the lilies twice from the "Easter Lilies" set on watercolor paper and color with distress inks, cut with scissors, adhere everything with pop dots as pictured.  Add some crystal swirls and the 3D crystal paint to the center of the lilies.
