I have some old catalogs from Herrschners, which is a company that sells, among other things for crafters, beautiful cross stitch patters, thread, hoops, etc. I love cross stitching, I haven't done much of it lately but lately, I've been getting the itch to start doing this beautiful craft again.
But anyway, the catalog is full of pictures of the cross stitch patterns that are so beautiful I cut them out and save them for.....well, whatever, I just can't throw them out.
So, when I saw the challenge over at Shopping our Stash called "Fantastic Plastic", I knew the time had come to share this card.
The doors are cut with a very old retired SU Bigz die called "Peekaboo Frames" I found THIS picture on Pinterest. The challenge calls for the use of plastic in our cards so I just cut a couple of squares of window sheets a bit bigger than the opening of the doors, then, with an exacto knife, I cut the center of the doors to attach the plastic. The rest of this cute cabinet is made wiht just brown card stock, for the drawers I used some brads for the knobs and I stamped a little design in the middle, the legs are punched out with the retired SU Extra Large Decorative Label Punch.
I sponged the edges to give the china cabinet a bit of a vintage look. The "dishes" inside are one of this pretty cut outs from the catalogs. Here is a picture of it with it's doors closed.
The 2 "bone china" plates are also cut out from the pages of the magazines, I hope you can see the "glass" on the doors.
Here is a picture of the finished inside, this card takes me back to my maternal grandma's house, she had one of this cabinets in her bedroom, full of mementos and knick knacks, it smelled like lavender.
Here is the banner for this challenge blog's theme this week.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
