~Dresser Cards~

I had a lot of fun making these "dresser" cards.  I saw a picture from 'Michelle's Craft Classes'  blog who lives in Australia; but she didn't have dimensions for the large dresser with the 'stained glass'; so I spent quite a while figuring out the dimensions.  The center sidestep dresser card was inspired by Jackie Topa.  I made this card for a friend of mine whose birthday is coming up.

'Side step Dresser Birthday Card'

If anyone would want to recreate the 'stained glass' dresser, here are the dimensions I came up with:

Dresser Card

• 8 ½ x 5 ½ card base; scored at 4 ¼

• 4 x 4 ½ big panel

• 3 7/8 x 1 1/8 - 2 bottom drawers

• 7 ¾ x 1 ½ top drawer; scored at 2” and 5 7/8”. I used the 1 ¼ square punch to punch out ‘windows’

• 3 ¾ x 1 3/8 for inside insert on top drawer

   1 ½ x 1 ¾ vellum textured window

Happy Stampin'!!
