Trying Something New

The other day while strolling through Pintrest I saw a easel spinner card.  Today while strolling through I saw a flying easel card that was very similar.  I decided I wanted to make a drawer card, it's been a long time, so I sort of combined all of the stuff to create this.

I used some fun cookie cutter dies, a butterfly Embosslit and a sentiment die.  I used some awesome papers from a DCWV stack called Bella Armoire, mostly scraps from the man date card I posted the other day.  I did the measurements myself for the drawer and the wrap since I couldn't find one anyplace that was 4.25 x 5.5 wide (see below for my measurements).  For my first go at this I think it turned out great!  :)

How I made the drawer:
I cut a 7.5 x 6.25 piece of card stock and scored it 1" on all sides.  I cut one side of each corner in order to fold it in and adhear it to the inside of the drawer.

How I made the wrap:
I cut a piece slightly larger than 4.25 and as long as I could get it (I only had 8.5 x 11 black cardstock).  centering my drawer I scored on each side, then one inch from those score marks.  Because the two ends didn't meet up, I cut another piece the same size as my card and glued it to the two sides.

Hope that made since?  I'm not very good at explaining things...

Thanks for looking!
