Hi Roadies! Stacy here on the Maya Road Blog today and it's Day 5 of Maya Road DT and Xyron Swap! I hope you have been enjoying all the projects by the DTs!
Creating for this swap had been a breeze! With the right tools and great embellishments, the project time was shortened and creativity spiked! I used both the 1.5" and 3" sticker makers for this project. I find the variety of sizes good for different embellishments. For today, I decided to construct an easel card drawer. This idea had been roving in my mind for some time now, and I decided to put my hands on it!
Easel cards can be stored flat yet opened up to stand when the receiver receives it. So I thought, why not add a drawer to include some special gifts for the receiver as well?
I started out with making the starburst background for my card. The triangular shapes were cut from different pattern papers and I used the Xyron 3" sticker maker to provide adhesive to my pieces. It's so convenient!
See? All the bits and pieces are now ready for use. I even had excess for my next project!
Next i prepared some die-cuts to use for my easel card. These Maya Road dies are my top favorites! Here you will see the diagonal ATC die-cut, Amazing Grace Script die-cut, Geometric Leaf die-cut and my latest favorite flower die! You need this die for sure! I love the Xyron with my word dies, it really means that I'll never lose that dot above the "i" anymore!
Oh yes, i ran a chipboard through as well! I'm using a chipboard piece from Maya Road Shot through the Heart chipboard set. For this piece, I took my markers and colored it. Everything is now ready for me to start decorating!
Here is a another closer look into the drawer box. Yes I did run this Mayaroad token through the 3" Xyron sticker maker too!
Boy this was fun! Hope you have enjoyed this walk through the making of this easel card drawer!
