Baby Dresser Card (girl)

This week and next I hope to make some baby cards.  Last week I ended up making only 1, but made up for it today by making 2.  Although to be fair, they were both the  same card, only different colours.
I'd been wanting to make the baby dresser card for some time, and finally find a bit of a tutorial on one of Cindee Wilkinson's earlier blogs 

Note:  sponging is very important to emphasize the features of this card.  Sponging was done with Blushing Bride.

  • Start with pink pirouette cardstock 4 by 11, folded at 5 1/2 to form a top folding card
  • The decorative label punch was used to create the feet of the dresser.
  • Cut three pieces of cardstock for the drawers - 3 3/4 by 1"
  • Cut one piece of cardstock for the top - 4 1/4 by 1/2"
  • For the drawer handles, die cut 2 flowers per drawer for a total of 6 flowers.  After the flowers are applied to the drawers a pearl is put in the center
  • The top drawer is attached using dimensionals giving it the appearance of it being partially opened.
  • The dresser topper is attached using dimensionals.
  • Embellishments are made using the "Sweet lil things" DSP - the onesies on a hanger, bib, booties, duckie, and a diaper pin upon which the sentiment is stamped- all made using the coordinating framelits to the Something for Baby stamp set.
Supplies Used: 
Stamp: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink:Black Memento, Blushing Bride
Papers: Pink Pirouette, Sweet Lil Thing" DSP, white Baker's twine, Something for baby coordinating framelits, pearls, Decorative Label punch, glue dots, dimensionals.
