Armoire Card

I finally finished my armoire card. I finished the templates for this card a while back but I experienced what I call a 'creativity block' and struggled putting the finishing touches. Like I mentioned previously, I got the idea for this card from my antique armoire in my living living room where I keep my entertainment center.

I created the templates for the base of the card and its layers. The corner borders (2 different designs on the card) were traced from a free clip art website with no restrictions on sharing. The flourishes on the sentiment inside the card are designs from Silhouette. I created the flourish on top of the armoire using a corner border which I duplicated and welded together then added another portion of the corner border and welded it on both sides of the created flourish. The finished flourish is nothing like the original corner border. I enjoyed making this flourish. The letters on the door of the armoire were made from multiple cuts glued together to create the 'faux chipboard' look.The sentiment hanging on the door handle is my creation and the layered tag design is from Silhouette. I put a fine yellow ribbon to cover the holes of the 'stitches' that I created on the doors. Don't you just love the door handles? They are so cute! They are actually brads that I found at a notions store here. I wanted to keep the back of the doors clean so I bent the prongs and applied the glue on the bent prongs.
