Little Drawers!

I have not done much card making lately as I was busy getting a number of cards finished off and packaged ready for sale and travelling with my son to Sydney and back [it was good to see his twin brother and family for a short time while we were there]. We travelled just under 3000 kms from here to there and back with a car trailer behind!

This little set of drawers is for a very special friend who has done a lot for me at times this year. The tutorial is on Splitcoaststampers and I think is called Santa's drawers??? Now I have made up one set, I know more of where to cut etc. as to make it all fit together better.

I used Soft Suede for the frame and divider and then SU Elegant Soiree DSP for the drawers etc. For the back section, I used the SU Top Note die, SU Sizzlet die set Lots of Tags, the Embosslit Die set Beautiful Wings, the large oval tag punch and the Oval Extra-large punch. The wording is from the hostess set Occasional Quotes.

Hard to see but I have put a "runner" on top of the drawers. For the edge of it, I used the Pinking Hearts Border punch.

I used the Crumb Cake buttons for the drawers and so they can be opened more easily, I threaded the narrow taffeta Very vanilla ribbon through and left little loops. Satin Very Vanilla ribbon is wrapped right around and finished off with a bow.

All supplies are from Stampin' Up! except for the little pearls which are Kaisercraft.

I hope my friend likes it and can use the little stamping goodies I have placed in each drawer!
