Baby Dresser/Bureau Congrats Card

Happy 4th of July, America! This is such a special holiday. And a belated Happy Canada Day to my Canadian friends!

Today I have a card I cased from one I found on Pinterest. That place is GREAT for inspiration! Unfortunately I was unable to track down who made this card, so if you know who came up with the original design (it's very similar), please let me know so I can give proper credit! (It came from the Friday Mashup blog).

This was nerve-wracking to make at first...I wasn't so sure about what cuts to make and had to visualize everything in my head before slicing into the paper, and my mind likes to play tricks on me so that was confusing to say the least! But I managed to do this exactly as planned, which I didn't expect to happen. I used kraft cardstock for this and a tapestry stamp from Stampabilities. I also used wide white lace, lots of Vintage Photo distress ink, Very Vanilla 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, and 12mm cream half-back pearls. This is supposed to resemble a dresser or bureau, whichever you like to call it :) I hand-drew the design at the bottom left, and was super surprised it came out so well! I used Antique Linen distress ink to color white cardstock to give it a yellow appearance since the sex of the baby is not known yet. Though it's a dress with lace it's supposed to be a gender-neutral card LOL. A friend is 15 weeks pregnant and I wanted to send her a card congratulating her and her husband on their soon-to-be new addition!

Thanks for stopping by! Remember to leave a comment and I will follow your blog back! :)
