Hostess Monday with Deborah

Hi everyone
Deborah here and I’ve got the honour of being your hostess for this week. As this is my first time as hostess on the Digital Delights Blog I racked my brain as to what I could share with you.  After considering several projects I finally decided on an Easel Card Box.  These are perfect for giving at Christmas time as they can have a special treat inside.

Materials Used:
1 x A3 sheet of white card
3 x A4 sheets of white card
2 x A4 sheets of coloured card (for matting)
1 sheet of patterned paper (Red Dot/Santa’s List by Simple Stories)
Spacer and Brad
Strong Double Sided Tape/Wet Glue
Ribbon and Rhinestones

Digital Delights products used
Santa's letters (colored)Santa's letters set
Santa's letters set

Magical winter sentiments

Christmas Sentiments
Scoring Board
Dies – Memory Box (Frostyville Border and Precious Mittens) and Spellbinders (Standard Circle)
For the box, trim an A3 sheet of card to measure 38.1cm wide x 14.8cm deep.  Then place the card lengthways on a scoring board and score at 3cm, 17.8cm, 20.8cm and 35.6cm.  Fold along the score lines and assemble.  To make the drawer cut a piece of card to 20.2cm x 20.2cm.  Using the scoring board score down one side at 2.8cm.  Turn the card clockwise and score again at 2.8cm.  Repeat this until all four sides are done.  Fold along the score lines and assemble. 
To make the easel card trim a sheet of A4 white card to 14.8cm wide x 29.6cm long.  Score in half then score one of the halves in half again (this is the base).  Trim another A4 sheet of white card to measure 14.8cm x 14.8cm (this is the front).  Fix the front card to the base (bottom quarter only).


To decorate the card I used one of the images from Santa’s Letters which was coloured with copic pens.  The sentiments are from Magical Winter Sentiments set and Santa’s Letters.

Now all you need to do is fill the drawer with something nice!

Thank you for your visit and I hope I’ve inspired you in some way.
