So, to start off my blog post, I decided that I wanted to try my hand at an elegant vintage card. As always, there is a complete supply list at the bottom of my post. I love the look of the slightly distressed edges, sponged with Tip Top Taupe. I stamped off before stamping in sahara sand, tip top taupe, pool party, and pink pirouette on very vanilla card stock.Stampin Up, SU, Timeless Textures, Botanical Builders, Vintage

I just love the pearls, they give it an extra touch. I decided to put the sentiment on the inside. This card is actually going to be a sympathy card for a friend.

Now, my project…which I LOVE!! I think you’ll love it too! TA-DA! 🙂Stampin Up, 3D, easel, box, botanical builders, feel goods, chalk talk, birthday bouquet

Isn’t this card just gorgeous. It uses the birthday bouquet designer series paper and coordinating card stocks with the botanical builders framelits. The drawer knob is from Lowes, and the drawer actually pulls out.Stampin Up, 3D, easel, box, botanical builders, feel goods, chalk talk, birthday bouquet

I sponged the edges with soft suede. I used sentiments from the Feel Goods stamp set and Chalk Talk with some gold wink of stella accents.

The top part folds down flat too for easy mailing and transport. The base is made out of watercolor paper since it is much more sturdy than regular card stock. I believe that it’s actually 140 lbs.Stampin Up, 3D, easel, box, botanical builders, feel goods, chalk talk, birthday bouquet

  1. Went to each hop site but some is hard to leave the comment. Thanks to all the hopper for sharing their creativity with me. Beautiful work Ladies. Made me smile thinking how happy you all must be crafting away.

  2. Absolutely amazing project and that DSP is beautiful! Your work is amazing and this Easel Box is to die for! Great job!!! Following you…FB, YT, and Blog. Thank you for sharing!

  3. I’m not trying to win a prize, I’m a SU demonstrator, I just wanted to know the details of your gift box. All your projects are beautiful! I just love the box more! I’d really like to try and make at least one maybe more. I have about 12 or more grand daughters (too many). Only at Christmas. The grandsons get married and don’t tell us for awhile. That’s what the about is! LOL! I’d love to make them all one, if I can keep count. I hope you don’t mind sharing. Thank you for sharing what you have shared already.

    • Thanks for commenting…I guess I need to make a tutorial for you and others 🙂 SU demos are allowed to win prizes too 😉

  4. OMG Elizabeth that is like everyone already said over the top. The box is out of this world. I want to make it with you and Kathie. The card is also very pretty. #SFMARHOP

  5. Just beautiful and inspiring! I hope you put a tutorial together for the box. Will watch the video for sure. TFS! #SFMarHop

  6. #SFMarHop The easel box card is amazing. I would love a tutorial on how to complete that. That’s for sharing.

  7. Love the colors and design of your vintage card which I spotted on Kylie’s blog! Your drawer project blows me away! This is truly professional and a wonderful design—love it!

  8. I did try to leave a comment on my ipad but it didn’t seem to work. I am also not able to pin to Pinterest on my ipad or iphone from your site–you might want to check this. Beautiful projects, both the vintage card featured on Kylie’s blog and your drawer card. Love them!
