Dresser Step-Card

Hello Stampin' Friends,

So, as I said before I participated in a swap that was called Over the Top.  Well, right afterwards we had a "specialty" swap and I was in one called Bling it On.  This "specialty" swap in particular was to have bling, which could be jewels, glitter, brads, pearls, etc.  I must say that it was another great swap that I hope to do again.

Here is the card the I made for the Bling it On Swap.

I call this the - Dresser Step-Card

SU! Supplies Used
Stamps - Just Believe, Petite Pairs
CS - Crumb Cake, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla, Pink Pirouette
Inks - Crumb Cake, Wild Wasabi, Rose Red
Punches - Word Window, Curly Label, Scallop Edge, Itty Bitty Shapes
Brads - 3/16" Metallic
Jewels - Basic Pearls
Ribbon - 3/8" Taffeta - Pink Pirouette
Crochet Trim - Victoria
Misc - Paper Piercer, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Sticky Tape

For this step-card you cut directly center to make the 2 separate sections.  For the dresser side you cut 3 rectangles for the drawer fronts, sponge edges with Crumb Cake Ink.  Using the Paper Piercer & Mat pierce the holes for the brads on one drawer front, then so that they will all match and align up correctly stack the others 2 under the 1st pierced block and using those holes pierce through all layers.  This easier then trying to get it exactly by eyeballing it.  Place you 3/16" Metallic Brads, whatever color you like.  Cut a small piece, about 1", of the Victoria Crochet Trim and place some Sticky Tape over the front and back of the drawer front and place your crochet trim on top of sticky tape.  Makes it look like something is hanging out of one of the dresser drawers.  Attach the dresser drawer fronts to the left side of card using Dimensionals.  Then using the Curly Label Punch, punch half of the design on the bottom left center of the card to form the legs of the dresser.   Now, for the right side of the card you need to cut a piece from Wild Wasabi CS and sponge edges with Wild Wasabi Ink.  Cut a smaller piece of Very Vanilla CS and stamp the stem images from the Just Believe Set using Wild Wasabi Ink, sponge edges with Wild Wasabi Ink also. Punch 4 flowers from Pink Pirouette CS using the flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punches.  Sponge the edges of the flowers with Rose Red Ink.  Adhere 3 of the flowers to the stem image and add a small Basic Pearl to each flower center.  Make a knotted bow from the Pink Pirouette Ribbon and adhere to stem image block.  Stamp the "Friends" in Crumb Cake Ink onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS and punch out with the Word Window Punch.  Sponge the edges of word window with Crumb Cake Ink.  Using the Scallop Edge Punch, punch the bottom center of the right side just to give a little accent.  Then attach the "Friend" word window just above punched area with Dimensionals.  Now adhere the stamped image block to right side front.  Front of card is finished.  For the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Petite Pairs Set onto Very Vanilla CS using Wild Wasabi Ink.  Then you need to punch out the sentiment using the Curly Label Punch and then sponge the edges with Crumb Cake Ink.  Next adhere the 4th flower from earlier to the top left corner and add a small Basic Pearl to center.  Adhere to left side center of inside card with Dimensionals.

Ta Da!  All done, and oh so very cute!  You could do this same style card using toys for more of a kids card, or even make it using some baby items as a baby card.  There a a ton of possibilities with this darling Dresser Step-Card.  Have fun with it and please share your ideas of what you come up with.
