and for anybody visiting from Make My Monday and wondering where the arrow is, inside the door is a sentiment, complete with arrow!
I've added a piece of white card to the inside to write the greeting on.
This was actually very easy to make. I started with an A4 sheet of Kraft which I folded and cut to make two A6 sized tent cards and set one aside for another time. Then I cut the folded card at each side, 5 mm from the edge, from the fold down to 2 cm from the bottom edge, and then at a 45 degree angle out to the edge. Then choose a label die that fits most of the way across the bottom of the card, hold it on place with low-tack tape (or bits cut off a sticky note!) and die cut through both layers of the bottom to create the "legs". You could just do this by cutting straight lines but I like the effect a label die creates, and you can ring the changes by using different ones.
Now put the folded card through a woodgrain embossing folder, positioning the folder so that the grain runs vertically and the bottom 2 cm remains unembossed. Because kraft card can be quite thick and it is double thickness, I use a thinner plate in the sandwich than my usual embossing one. I've already killed one Grand Calibur, I can't afford to make a habit of it!
To make the drawers, cut two pieces of kraft 9 cm x 3 cm each, and emboss them with the grain running horizontally. For the cupboard, cut a piece 18 cm x 5 cm and score at 4.5 cm from each end, to form the doors, then emboss each end panel separately, again with the grain running horizontally.
Lightly ink the edges of the drawer and cupboard pieces and attach to the card. Cut a piece of white card 4.5 cm x 8.5 cm, stamp your chosen sentiment on it and stick it inside the cupboard. Also cut a piece of white card to fit inside the card to write on when sending it - the embossed surface would be too difficult to write on!
Add gems or pearls for knobs - I used brass effect ones from my stash.
If you are making the card for a specific occasion, you could fill the cupboard with stamped or decoupaged images suitable for the occasion, and arrange bits peeping out of the drawers too, but I've kept this as a generic birthday card.
Right, I'm going to share this with a few challenges:

Use Your Stuff - Use an embossing folder
House of Cards - Shaped cards
