Kaisercraft Beyond the Page Storage Cupboard

I made this for my son after he asked me to make something for his "man cave" to keep his vape things in. Went a bit off beat and used tarot/playing cards to decorate it. I personally like the art work on the Rider Waite deck, but thought the colours might be a bit gaudy for my son, so I went on the hunt and found these lovely black and white cards. And just in case you're wondering, NO we are NOT satanists, and all those flatback pearls were individually stuck on, definitly a labour of love :) ...

Tarot/playing cards - Arcana, Dead on Paper
Flourish border (sides of card frames) - Dusty Attic fancy trim 6
Die cut on drawers and top - Spellbinders Flourish Trim
Paper lining - Kaiser Craft, Holy Night Star Paper
Gate die - Cheery Lynn, Wrought Iron window
Image in the Cabouchon was printed from the computer and is the Hermit from the Led Zepplin album The Four Symbols.
The quotes inside the "gates" were suggested by my Dad, from Dante's Devine Comedy which he read many years ago but still remembered there were some beautiful quotes to be had from there. So I had a look and decided to do the black gate as the descent into darkness and the white gate the ascent back into the light ...
 Thank you for looking, take care and keep smiling :)
