Tilda With Pigling And A Drawer Easel Card.

Good afternoon, crafty blogger's.
I have made a drawer easel card featuring Tilda With Pigling.
I made a few of these cards last year for a friend so I thought I would make another one. This time for Christmas which won't be very long now and I love it.
I found the tutorial for the drawer easel card in Cardmaking & Papercraft last year.
The tutorial is by Dawny P.
There are a lot of pictures for this creation because one shot just wasn't enough. Lol!
Here we go................

I have made the drawer easel card with 300gsm white Conqueror card.
I have stamped Tilda With Pigling onto Neenah card with Memento "Toffee Crunch" ink and cut the image out with Spellbinders Decorative Labels One.
I have coloured the image with Polychromos pencils and inked around the frame with Tim Holtz "Tea Dye" distress ink. I have also frantaged around the image with shabby white embossing enamel.
The Frantage is from Live & Love Crafts.
The gorgeous papers are Maja Design "It's Christmas Time" from Dies To Die For.
I have inked the edges of the papers with Tim Holtz "Tea Dye" distress ink and matted them onto Woodware recycled card.
The Joy Crafts Noor Design Winter Wishes die cuts around the top and sides of the card have been frantaged with shabby white embossing enamel. I have added 5mm white pearls to each of the snowflake centres
The 5mm white pearls and pretty lace are from The Ribbon Girl.
The coloured image has been adhered with sticky pads and placed onto a piece of cheesecloth.
The cheesecloth is from Ebay.
The die cuts that I have frantaged with shabby white embossing enamel and used on the card are Doohickey snowflakes, Cheery Lynn Ivy flourish corner and La-La Land heart fence.
For the flower arrangement I have used a 25mm green rose, 20mm white roses, 15mm red roses and white gypsophilia. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. In between the arrangement I have placed a Doohickey heart swirl and a few Martha Stewart woodland branches. The swirl and branches have been inked around the edges with "Tea Dye" distress ink.
The snowflake charm is from The Ribbon Girl. I have covered it with Snow~Tex and added a white 5mm pearl to the centre.
The metal corner is from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have frantaged it with shabby white embossing enamel.
The sentiment is computer generated.
I have cut the sentiment out with a smaller Spellbinders decorative label and matted it onto the next size up with recycled card. Both have been inked around the edges with "Tea Dye" distress ink
Inside the drawer has been decorated with Maja Design "It's Christmas Time" papers and a Doohickey snowflake.
The wooden button on the drawer is from Fantastic Ribbons.
I have frantaged the button with shabby white embossing enamel and used a length of green embroidery thread to secure it to the drawer.
Here is the Drawer Easel Card closed.
A close up of the flower arrangement.
I have painted Snow~Tex from Live & Love Crafts  onto the flowers.
Tilda with Pigling.
I have dotted Tilda and Pigling's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen and added ArtDeco
Glamour Dust to the bottom of Tilda's dress.
I hope you like my creation?
