The Card That Grew and Grew

Good Morning Everyone, Donna here with another card for Cheery Lynn Designs, what started out as a card, suddenly became a 4 Drawer Box Card, which suddenly changed to a 4 Drawer Easel Box Card......phew, that was a mouthful.

For the front of the card I used an Easter image from Krista Smith, colored with Copics and Tria Markers, papers from Bearly Mine Designs, ribbon from my stash, the oval behind the image is a XL Oval Classic Stackers Nesting Die and behind that is the Swedish Spring Oval Frame, I've also used the Francesca border cut out in pink and white along the bottom. The Easter Eggs are from the smallest of the nesting egg die, which I cut out of shrink plastic, colored with tria markers, then shrunk down, I've added glossy accents and then glamour dust to them to give them the shine, and I've also cut out another of the nesting eggs out of clear shrink plastic and punched a hole through the top, and added glossy accents and glamour dust to them as well. The letters were cut using the Italian Romance alpha Font set. The tiny bunny was cut using the bunny that comes with the nesting eggs, on shrink plastic, and a hole cut through it so it would hang as a nice charm. The flowers are a mixture of mini roses and cuties 2, which has olive branches and something else behind that. The edging under the card for the box part is the cuties 3 die, see you can use these dies as a border as well as making flowers with them.

The inside of the card I cut out one of the French Flair Classic LG nesting dies, and then the  French Flair Doily Stack die in white, letters are from the Italian Romance Font set, eggs are the nesting eggs.

Also on the inside is one of the gorgeous corner dies from Deco Lace Corner Set F, which I put glossy accents on and glamour dust to give it some sparkle.

A closeup of the Easter Eggs Banner,connected together with twine. I love the shine on these eggs.

Finally on the drawers I have attached papers from Bearly Mine Designs and used a pearl brad so you have something to open the drawers with.........and finally look what's in the drawers


Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed the pictures of my project that grew and grew into something bigger. You'll have to excuse the blurriness in some of the photo's as  my hands shake a lot with my medical condition when taking pictures.

Don't forget the challenge with the theme of Easter ends tonight.
