Hello friends! Happy Summer!
Today I'm sharing the card I made for the card challenge going on at Tammy's Scrapin' Corner.
This week's theme is Make A Step Card.
I've never made a step card of any kind before so this was certainly a challenge for me.
There are many different kinds of step cards and I thought I would start with the side step card.
I thought it was quite easy to make after my fourth try at it. Now I could probably make them in my sleep! Well probably not at all but I was surprised at how simple it really was.
Here's the link I used for my instructions. Step Card
This card is smaller and much thinner than most of the cards I make but I was unable to find instructions for a 6" side step card.
Normally I make my card bases from Super stock. It's 130lb double thick white cardstock. It's thick and gives so much weight to my cards. I love that! It can stand up to all those embellishments I like to pile on my cards. I need to score it slightly with an exacto knife to prevent the fold lines from
looking like kaka freying. So since there was a lot of folding to be done for this step card I used SU cardstock.(SU cardstock is 80lb)
One of our sponsors this week is Bugaboo Digi Stamps. I used Girl Fairy Birthday Dust. Our other sponsor is SK Digis
I enlarged the sentiment that comes with the Bugaboo digi and fussy cut the ice cream cones after I colored them with chalks and covered them with a layer of Crackle accent.
I have some Tim Holtz Rock Candy that I've never used so I tried it on the fairy wings. They looked okay but really muted the colors because of the thickness of the glaze. Yeah I should have used Crackle accent for the wings too.
The paper is from Teressa Collins. The circular birthday sentiment is from SK Digis.
Thanks for stopping by!
