Step Card ...

Hi Everybody,

A card with a difference and this is a really easy stepper card that requires no measuring and no dies to get the basic shape

I did this in a video almost six years ago and if you watch it you will see how  I have progressed since it was done.

I should maybe do a newer version of this card but the idea is so simple and easy that the video still says it all




For the newer card I have created it in the same way but I have added in dies to decorate it and for this I used the   Interlocking Love    from Spellbinders.   This is a die that I have used many many times and I really like the effect that it gives.

The flowers are white Roses from   Wild Orchid Crafts  and they have been glittered up with  Glitter Magic  The white satin ribbon is from  Mei Flower  and it is tied into a double bow

The card I have used for the base of  this is silver foiled pale blue from  Cardcraft Plus  and they
have many other colours and patterns.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  4. A wonderful tutorial that is easy to follow! I've never seen a step card explained so easily. Both cards are beautiful. I love the Interocking Love die and how well it works on your card. I've never made a step card but I will definitely give it a try now. Thank you Christina.

  13. WOW...how easy is this!?!?
    Thanks for showing us this, Christina. I usually shy away from stepper cards as I really HATE measuring lol. I have to say that I love the 'new improved' version of the card you made, it's so pretty :). I think I need to make a space on my worktop and have a play.

  27. Hi Christina, firstly may I start of by saying a really HUGE thank you, I had my beautiful prize card through the post yesterday, and it looks even more beautiful in real life, the photos do not do your lovely cards justice!
    Seconly, this is just too co-incidental ... lol ... I have been struggling the last couple of days to make a stepper card to show off the tattered lace fairy coach, and fairy castle .... then you go and post this (several sheets of card later --- note to self; PRACTICE WITH COPY PAPER FIRST!) lol ... so now, I can make one MUCH easier! So , Thank you for that also! The card you have made here, is so very pretty and I just love that pale blue!
    Hugs,
    Karen xx
