This is for my new little great-niece Milla Elizabeth. Milla's beautiful mum, Kristy, is the only member of my entire family that keeps cards LOL so it was a genuine honour to spend so much time making this.
The fold is a standard side step card, but instead of having the steps to the side, you cut it twice so the steps end up in the middle.
The legs were made using a Stampin Up tag punch. The little dresses were hand drawn and cut out, using distress ink to give the illusion of pleats, lace was added to the hems.
The coat handers were made with jewellry wire, they took about 10 seconds to make. Had I known how quick and easy they are to make I wouldn't own 10 packets of expensive shop bought ones (that are too big) LOL.
The card base is very heavy craft card, I painted it with Distress paint to give a vintage look. I noticed the rough scored card at the top of the wardrobe, I have since filed that off.
This was a real joy to make, thank you for looking.

Oh, sis, Milla is going to cherish this forever! It's so beautiful, and we all can see the love you put into it! How precious that she keeps all your cards! It's like my older grandson who does that (and he's now 18). Sigh! Beautiful (no, stunningly) done, sweet sis, and I love you! xoxo

Susie, Susie, Susie, you are too much! You AU girls are quite the talented craftsters I must say. How wonderful to know that spending all that time creating something so special is going to someone who loves and appreciates the time, energy to make something like this. This is so wonderful.

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!! It's no wonder your niece saves your cards. Those dresses are so sweet. I saw you pinned the hanger instructions on Pinterest. You did a great job on them and the dresser itself is amazing. Love it!
