This is one of my favorites in my Hippo Happiness Series!  Such a fun card for a Baby Shower!  I’ve been needing baby shower cards so decided this Bundle would be perfect to create a few.  I did this card in both Blue and Pink and they both came out looking adorable!  I’ll have to admit I did need to use a ruler for this card to get the pearls on the drawers straight. So let take a look at the instructions!

First Here’s a video link that shows step by step instructions for this card and the other 2 in this series!  This one starts in the video at the 22:14 mark.
