I guess you can say that I didn't get enough of these easel drawer boxes, but I did have a few more to make, so I wanted to use this stamp and here's my first one! I love to color her in red and the black just made everything stand out more. if you didn't see my last post, I posted a tutorial on how to make these simple easel drawers.

next take your longest piece...4" x 11" CS and score it at: 1 1/8", 2 1/4", 6 3/8" and 7 1/2". put your double stick tape on the inside (the end of the 7 1/2" score). (tip: if you put your drawer upside down and place it between the 2 1/4" and 6 3/8" score line...then fold this piece over it...the cover will keep it's shape)
here's what it looks like from the side once the long piece is put together...you can see where the drawer is inserted.
then you take your 4" x 8" piece of CS and score it at: 2" and 4". flip it over and put double stick tape on the bigger part...shown below.
stick it down to the TOP of the cover. the flap will turn into your easel. I emphasize the TOP because if you stick it underneath the cover, there will not be enough CS left to make it into a easel. the drawer should be able to be pulled out from the front and the back.
take your 4" x 4" piece of CS and decorate to your heart's content before adding it to your easel flap. just put double stick tape on the bottom of your 4" x 4" CS and there it is! I really wanted to decorate this easel drawer box/card. I also added my calendar to it. that is what I used to hold open my easel, but on my other ones I liked to use buttons, brads, flowers, etc and that is fine too =) I used memento ink, colored with my copics, used MS border punches, flowers, leaves and a butterfly charm. remember: you can purchase your charms at Stamp and Create...you can also get the jump rings and this image there too!
here's the finished easel drawer...

so, on to my card...I created a card for my dear friend Linda! she just celebrated her ?? birthday and I wanted to make her a special card. her favorite color is purple too...so this was even more fun to make! I had a blast coloring this image because if you go to the Lili of the Valley website, there is a coloring tutorial for this bunny. I followed the directions and this is how my balloon bunny came out...hope you had a happy birthday Linda...Ride 'em cowgirl!!!Happy Friday everyone! we made it to the end of the week. hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I am so gracious to everyone who comes by to visit and leave me such happy comments for me to read. I have a smile on my face just knowing the comments are there.
