Side Step Card Baby Girl Dresser

Here's another style of card I have been meaning to try for a while.  A manager at my work is due to have her first baby at the end of December and we had a baby shower for her on Friday.  Even though I have been working evenings of late (right to bed time), I had promised I would make her a special card.  So I stayed up past midnight one night to create this thing.  I was going to go for simple for my time constraints, but I really wanted to try this out.

The great thing about a side step dresser card is that you can make it for boy or girl simply by changing the colour scheme.

I used my Hot Off the Press teddy bear stamp (coloured with copics with a sakura sparkle gel pen for the bow), my Quickutz onsie die, and my Stampin' Up! safety pin and welcome baby stamp.  I used some old button shaped brads I had and some lace someone gifted me.

I didn't have much else to stuff in the drawers - at least nothing small enough.  For something learned and completed at midnight, I think it turned out well.  I'm not often fond of tent fold cards, because they inevitably flatten out.  If I had more time, I'd have stuffed the folded card under something heavy for a day to really reinforce those folds.

My co-worker liked it.  That's what mattered!


  1. Hi Lisa, well, I cannot imagine doing anything creative at midnight so I"m amazed by this. The card is so adorable, love the drawers and the sweet bear. You did a great job, most especially given the time of night...extra props to you for that one.


  2. Oh my goodness this is so adorable.
    So much detail in this card.
