Making a Curio Cabinet

Anyone that knows me is aware of the fact that I have a fascination for little drawers.  I love them in furniture and in home decor items, so imagine my delight when a Curio Cabinet was the focal stamp image in the September Monthly Hero Arts Kit.

I am not going to lie.  It took forever to put this card together.  There was lots of Copic blending to make the wood cabinet.  There was lots of picky arranging of the handles on the cabinet and then the time-consuming embossing of the handles.   After that there was the job of deciding what to put in the Curio cabinet.  I had decided that I was going to find “real” little treasures to place in the cabinet rather than just stamping images, so that gobbled up more time.  This also necessitated that the cabinet be turned into a shaker type card to manage the dimension of the “treasures”.  Then the tiny sentiments had to be lined up with the cabinet doors which was also time-consuming.  Then the little cards in the door pulls were painted white and some teeny tiny black writing was put on the cards.

In the end, I loved the resulting card.
