A Baby Card with Sizzix

Here's a baby step-up card with a dresser, onesie, rattle, bottle and all, made with Lori Whitlock's Baby Dresser card die set. I LOVED working with this set! So many adorable elements in one set...
Let me show you how I made this card.

To diecut the Baby Dresser Card, create this Sizzix Sandwich from bottom up: Standard Magnetic Platform for Wafer-Thin Dies, one Sizzix Accessory Standard Cutting Pad, patterned paper, Baby Dresser card base Thinlits die by Lori Whitlock blade side down, and another Sizzix Accessory Standard Cutting Pad on top. Pass the Sizzix Sandwich through the Sizzix Big Shot machine. The Magnetic Platform ensures a neat and clean cut by keeping the Thinlits die in place while passing through the machine.

Diecut the various embellishing elements using the same Sizzix Sandwich described above. Here, as you can see, I used up a lot of small scraps. The powerful magnets of the Magnetic Platform help  secure even the smallest paper scraps and dies allowing you to get several clean cuts with a single pass through the machine.

Here are all the diecut pieces. To make the card, mountain fold the two crease lines farthest away from the Dresser feet. Mountain fold the crease closest to the feet and valley fold the crease just above it.

Layer the embellishments as you like. I used brads to imitate drawer pulls.  

Start assembling the card. Use foam tape or pop dots for a dimensional look.

Here's my card after assembly. You can arrange the pieces any way you like. I doodled some details on the bear.

I ended up doodling on every piece and realized that if you are planning to doodle on your embellishments, it would be easier to do so before you add the embellishments to the card.
Hope you enjoyed this card and the tutorial. With so many possibilities, this Baby Dresser die set is going to be a favorite of my for a long time to come!
Here are all the supplies I used:  
Others: patterned papers, black pen, brads, adhesive, scissors
