Card and envelope storage

As most of you are aware of I´m building myself a scraphouse which means that I´ll finally have some room for all my stuff. It´s getting worse by the minute, I really don´t know where to put everything. I can´t wait to finish it, but meanwhile I need to deal with the situation.

I´ve kept finished cards on display on some picture rails, but they are so full that they keep falling down. And let´s face it-not much of a display when you have layers of four. So last week I decided to do something about it and I created two holders. One for smaller cards (less then 6×6) and one for smaller envelopes.

I used some old cardboard to get them steady and painted them with some Weathered Wood Crackle Paint. I added Walnut Stain on the crackles and used some papers from the Ella Blue collection from GCD Studios.

They are made as stand alones, but I´ve also placed decorations so I can keep them together if I want to. I´ve used the Doily Lace punch from Martha Stewart for the lace and added Walnut Stain to it.

Paper flowers are from Magnolia and Prima. I´ve used Walnut Stain and Smooch Spritz Vanilla on them, great product that I´ve totally fallen in love with. If you haven´t tried the Smooch, do it.

The little roses also got some Smooch and Old Paper on them.

But hey, most of my cards are 6×6… What to do. I bought a huge piece of cardboard on a Swedish bookstore called Bokia last christmas. I haven´t used it yet, but it turned out to be perfect to make a huge cardstation. This one is in one big piece, so I can´t divide it.

I´ve got 6×6 cards in two compartments and two different sizes of envelopes in the other two. I can easily change the distribution since all compartments are approximately 6 3/4 or 17 centimetres. The entire station is 27″ or 69 centimetres.

I used the Ella Blue collection from GCD Studios on this one as well.

I think I might have overdone the flower cascade, maybe a bit to much for my taste. All flowers are from Prima, the bling swirls are from Zva Creative. I found the gorgeous lace in a shop called Marikas.
