Hi @dars Doodles
I actually didnt use cardstock on this, i had tissue paper like for stuffing presents, and because it was thin and light pink, i painted the drawer pink first till dry

then added a bit of the mod podge glue and spread it thin and slowly laid the tissue and at first it was very wrinkly, but i used the flat front on my finger nails and it actually ironed it out completly smooth
when that was done with, i sprayed a clear sealer over it and some spray gliter

if u wanna use card stock u can use the exact same method, but i dont think u would need to use ur nail, maybe a card or a roller to help smooth it out in bits, but it should come out great and i wish u luck Happy

Very adorable and clever. My kids have just recently moved out on there own. I am turning my daughter's tiny room into a giant walk-in-closet/dressing room. My mother in law gave me a matching wood vanity and a small chest of drawers that I want to revamp for this room. I have some designer wrapping paper that is on very heavy stock...feels more like the thickness of wallpaper. I am thinking of cover some of my pieces with it. I was thinking more of a decoupage effect than covering a whole part. Although now that I see yours I may do that instead.
Here's my question. What do you do with the card stock. I'm old and dense sometimes, lol. But you said add the tissue cardstock and modgepodge. Where's the cardstock come in? Did you use it to get out any bubbles and wrinkles in the tissue paper after modgepodging it?
Looks great!
