                    Baby girl "dresser" card                              Big girl "lion" birthday card


This dresser card I had made back in January.  I had seen pictures of different dresser cards on the internet, and LOVED them.  I decided to try and make one of my own; and this is what I came up with.  If you would like the dimensions of the card check out my January 24th  post; it is listed there.


Isn't this Lion the cutest??  I 'found' this guy on a different card on pinterest.com.  I cased this card from Patti Corriere.  I thought he was so darling, I HAD to make a card with him on it.  Here are the materials I used to make the card:

Blossom punch                                        Melon Mambo Ink and grosgrain dotted ribbon
Cheerful Treat DSP                                 "Happiest Birthday Wished" stamp set
1 1/4" circle punch                                    glitter brads
3/4" circle punch                                       Whisper White cardstock
3/8" circle punch
cupcake punch (eyes)
label punch (feet)

The card I made for this challenge is below.  I tried a new folding technique I just learned called the "teabag" folding technique.  It is quite quick and simple and I LOVE the look of the 'medallion' you end up with when you put the 8 pieces of paper together.
