Here's a special Birthday card for my sister

I found the recipe for this card on another CTMH consultant's YouTube channel.  Her name is Kathryn Skipper.  Here is a link to Kathryn's video.  This card is a cool variation on an easel card, with a twist (4 little storage drawers).

I made this using the Chantilly paper pack.  I love how it turned out.  Ellen's birthday is this Sunday, and of course it won't get to NY by her birthday, even if I was able to get it to the PO in time.  Nuff of this gibberish, here's the birthday card.  

The first pic is the top and sides of the box, not quite complete yet.

 Here is the box, with the top propped open. The flower on the inside helps prop the lid open.

Here is box with the little drawers open.  There are actually 4 drawers, but the one in the back doesn't show in the photo.  I love how this one turned out. I hope I can part with it.


  1. love this so much! The colors, the drawers, the card Props up, its all so beautiful! It looks complicated, was it pretty easy?

  2. Beautiful!! Thanks for letting me see it in person
