I had even more fun finally getting the chance to sit down and craft!!! YEAA!!! I completed this project and it's all nice and dry to show now... lol!!! I didn't think it would be dry until much later, so it's a pleasant surprise to be able to post it this evening. I've been wanting to do one of these easel card boxes for a long time now and with my hubby's birthday being this Tuesday, I decided to do the box as one of his gifts. Unfortunately, the more I look at it, it looks more like it should have been a Valentine's gift... lol!!! I don't know what I'll fill it with yet but I'll come up with something before Tuesday. Any suggestions other than candy? Here's a picture of the top of the box:
I told you it looks like it should be for Valentine's Day... lol!!! Oh well, it's done now... heee-heeee! Now let's look at the opened easel card on top of the box:
I cut out Leonard's name on the new Craftwell ecraft cutter that he bought me for Christmas and it did pretty good; although (don't tell Leonard) I was really hoping for a Silhouette. I don't think this machine is nearly as good as the Silhouette but I'm going to try to work with it. If anyone has the Craftwell ecraft, please let me know because I'm finding there's quite a learning curve. Oh, yea, he also bought me the electronic Craftwell embosser which I LOVE! I'll be doing some embossed projects to show you soon!
Next is a picture of the box drawer opened revealing a bottom panel stamped with the "Happy Birthday" message (I thought this would be a nice surprise having it there:
Last is a side view of the easel card box:
Oh well, I guess I'm a bit "rusty" from my long break but I hope Leonard likes it -- and you too! Guess it might be a good thing I'm taking him to dinner because I'm not quite satisfied with this looking more like a Valentine's gift than a birthday gift..., although it sure was fun to do!!! Ummm, maybe I'll just tell him it's a combined belated Valentine and birthday present... NAW!!!
Well, I'm off to play with more new craft toys... but I'll be back!
I'll be seeing you!!!
