MC Nov/13 - 4 Drawer Keepsake - In Creating
I came across a similar structure on Pinterest - but of course can't find it now... Sigh!! Anyway it was in the back of my mind lately and I really wanted to make one. So a couple days ago I started by making the drawers. Then I made the covers for each drawer, adhered the floor of the easel and then was stuck in which direction to go in...
Today I finally decided. I was in a sewing/vintage type mood and wanted to use my newest rubber stamp acquisitions the Ornate Leaves and the Black Lace both by Designs by Ryn (Canadian stamps).

I thought this would make a great gift for a special friend. Each of the drawers contain some of the elements I used on the card.

I'm also using a couple quote stamps from Quietfire Design

And to see more details and descriptions, just click on card image and enjoy.

It also fits for these challenges:
Craft Your Passion  #187 More than 1 fold
Inspiration Avenue  something to do with Grandma's attic (since I've only had 1 grandmother who didn't have an attic this is a bit tough...) But I would image there'd be lace and buttons and those kind of things..
Divas By Design  #110 use a digi (the mannequin is a digi and the leaf silhouettes prior stamping are digis)
Penny's Challenge  #152 lots of layers
CCEE Stampers  #1345 Ribbon & lace
Moving Along with the Times  Pearls, swirlie & girlie
Crafts 4 Eternity  #149 anything but a card
Frosted Designs  Create a gift or something that holds a gift
Stampin For the Weekend  Autumn or fall colors
Crazy 4 Challenges  #211 put a frame on it (the frame is the structure around the drawers...)
Aud Sentiment  #93  feminine
Love to Scrap Challenge  #17 anything goes

Hey Yogi, thanks for sending me the link! Wow! This project has so many details. Love the little drawers... This is great. I will add it to a customer project blog post that I am writing today and enter your name in this month's draw for a free stamp. I've begun a monthly draw for people who send in photos of their creations using my stamps. My little way of saying thank you :)
