Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Creating a Side Step Card.

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is another one featuring the Mos Digital Pencil image called Joanie  ...

But the main reason for the card is not the coloring this time but the actual fold.

I have done a video to show you what I did to get the fold and how the rest of the card is created.

It is very easy to do ... just a couple of cuts and some folding and then it all just pushes into shape.

The video is not long and you can hear the croakiness in my voice.

The chest infection I have is lingering on and today it was back to the doctors.

Still I hope it won't spoil your enjoyment of the tutorial

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  along with the centre to the bow.

They have been  sparkled with   Glitter Magic  Chameleon glitter.   The satin ribbon is from Mei Flower    The butterflies were on a roll from the craft show and I don't know who makes them  Sorreeee !

On the website you can find other stepper card tutorials but they aren't  videos  ...  Yet !!

So there you have plenty to keep you amused for a little while

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
