Because the drawers are all the same size, they can be rearranged to suite your design and colour fashion whim. Happy Birthday Della!
It's wedding day for my neice Morgan and I've made a card/gift folder for the occasion. It's a standard 4x6 card with an opening flap on the right. For the card base I cut, scored and folded an old file folder. I then covered the various panels with pieces from a 12x12 sheet of double-sided scrapbook paper from the Susan Winget K&Company Specialty Paper. I selected this sheet as red and gold are auspicious colours to the Chinese.
After gluing all the pieces onto the blank card I used a corner round punch on the short panel edges. Then I sanded all the folds and edges and added some gold distress ink.
In keeping with the bird theme on the paper I added a gold bird cut from scrap matte board using the Tim Holtz Bird Branch die. This I added using foam dots to raise it a bit (and to allow for the cord).
The card was to serve as a gift holder, so I cut a shape using half of the Tim Holtz Ornamental die and added it using foam dots to allow for the thickness of the intended cheque.
I cut from scrap white card using the Sizzix Leaves die, wrote "Welcome to Married Life" and our names and attached it to the inside of the card with a heart-shaped paper clip.
I stamped with gold ink a red envelope with the happy couple's names and added another bird to tie it all together.
To keep the card closed I used a length of gold stretch cord saved from a Christmas past.
Once the cheque is removed and the leaves unclipped, the card can be regifted.
