Desktop Photo Holder + Easel Card


Here is an easel card + photo holder, made on order.

I've used Bob N Betty butterflies theme patterned paper here with black cardstock as base. For the main panel, I've a black diecut from Gina Marie Stitched Scallop Circles, matted with the same pattern paper. The bottom of this diecut has a small panel that acts as the photo holder. Tiny butterflies are from Itsy Bitsy and the entire panel is bordered using yellow gold pearls.

The sentiment is handwritten as per my client's requirement on a rectangle sheet blended with Picked Raspberry distress ink. It is then matted onto a Gina Marie Stitched Scallop Rectangle diecut to give the frame look. I added a few off-white pearls for more interest.

For the handle of the drawers, I've used a flower brad from Itsy Bitsy, removed the brad and just used the flower. I attached a pink bead using a headpin and inserted into the flower, folded the pin inside similar to a brad. That forms a beautiful handle :)

The inside of the drawers are also matted with the same patterned paper and I stamped a few butterflies from a stampset from Kaisercraft, using Versafine Onyx black ink and Seedless Preserves distress ink.

Here are some more close-up pics!
