Let's "Get In Shape"

This week at Classy Cards 'n Such, the challenge is to "Get In Shape".
Make a shaped card other then a circle, square, reg A2 card, etc.

I don't know about you, but I LOVE shaped cards!!  They can be so fun and unique!
So, lets get right to it!!  I made my cute "dresser" card starting with the base paper from
Classy Cards 'n Such.  This is a wonderful 111# weight paper called 
"Nude Curious Metallic" , a beige paper with a hint of pink in it!  I cut 4 panels, one
larger for the "drawers" to sit on and 3 drawers.  I inked around the edge with TH
Distress Ink "Old Paper". Brads were added to each for the "knobs".
For the bottom of my dresser, I used Spellbinders Vintage Labels & Banner dies,
using the smallest label die, and just using the top part!! I love how this looks like a "real" dresser
and the embossing detail from the Vintage Labels & Banner die really adds to it!!

Sticking out of the dresser drawers are two "doilies", these were made using a
Cheery Lynn Designs Snowflower Set 1 die and for the second doily a  cut off
piece from Cheery Lynn Designs Border die "Carnivale".  For fun, I added four
"playful" little kitties using the NEW, just released die from PoppyStamps "Baby Kittens".

Thank you for joining me today.
I hope my card has inspired you to join us this week in our "Get In Shape" challenge!

It does look like a real dresser! I would have thought it was a dresser die. Ingenious! Love the doilies draped over the drawer edges and, of course, the kitties.

This is too too cute for words and the way you have things coming out of the drawers is priceless and will bring a smile to any face!! A real keeper and shower offer too!
