Cooking With Cricut Challenge #83- Bling It On!

Welcome To Funky Cards
Cooking With Cricut-Challenge #83
Bling It On!

This week Cooking With Cricut is all about the Bling!  The more bling the better so Bling it on!

I am so happy to tell you that the wonderful family with the two boys I babysit for just welcomed a new baby girl to their family.  Now I get to watch three kids!!  I am so excited.  Of course I needed to make a card for baby Alexa.  What perfect timing.  This baby girl needs a card with bling!

This is called a dresser side step card.  It looks like the typical side step card, but the left side is a set of dresser drawers.  You can make the base several different ways...

Dresser Card Base:  5 ½” x 8 ½”. Cut down the centre (2 ¾”) starting at the 1” mark and stopping at 5 ¼”. Score @ 1” and 2” from one edge to the centre cut.
Drawers: Cut three ¾” x 2”
Front mat on baby cards 2” x 2 ½” on all other cards 2 ½” square. If you’re double matting make the second mat ¼” smaller.
For my card, there are many personal touches.  Using the Sweetheart Cricut cartridge, hearts were cut to attach to a handmade mobile to hang above the crib.  The crib was cut from the Every Day Cricut cartridge.
The adorable bear is the Bear I Heart U cutting file from  Instead of the heart balloon, the bear is holding 3 personalized balloons with Alexa's birth information...weight, height, date.  They were made using the Cameo (click on photo to enlarge).
Alexa's onesie was personalized with her name.  Then the bling was added to the neckline and to the bottom for the snaps.  The dresser drawers also got a little bling added to the handles and a bit of ink added to the edges to make them look distressed. 
I will be linking this up to:
