I’ve never attempted a “Step Card” before & as usual I didn’t go by any instructions to make mine, although there are heaps of instructions & tutorials out in blog land for you to follow. I also made mine to fit our standard envelope in Australia. As I really enjoyed making this type of card, I don’t think it will be my last.
Cut A4 Cardstock – Bashful Blue – 11 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ or 29.5cm x 15cm
|Back section of card for your greeting or note…|
Cut Bashful Blue Cardstock 5 7/8″ x 4 1/4″ or 15cm x 10.5cm
Adhere to back section of card – will give you a section for your card to fold out & stand
Cut 2 pieces of Wild Wasabi Cardstock – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm & adhere 1 piece to the above section of card
Cut 2 pieces of Whisper White Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″ x 14cm x 9.5cm – stamp image onto 1 piece of card & adhere to Wild Wasabi
This section is the part you are able to write your greeting onto ie the inside of a normal card
Back Section –
I randomly stamped my images onto the 2nd piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Wild Wasabi, Bashful Blue & Crumb Cake Inks. After dying my Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon with Crumb Cake Re-Inker & allowing to dry, I adhered this across the top half of the Whisper White Cardstock, adhered to Wild Wasabi & then to the Base Card. I tied a bow & adhered this to the card too.
Middle Section –
I stamped the wording using Crumb Cake Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock, cut it out & adhered to Wild Wasabi, which was then adhered to the middle section. I allowed a little bit of the wording sit above the fold, instead of flat against the card. I made 2 flowers using retired Felt Flowers, small white flower which I dyed using Bashful Blue Re-Inker & a Silver Brad. These were attached to the centre section of the card.
Front Section –
I cut a small piece of Wild Wasabi Cardstock & adhered to the Bashful Blue. Using the Scallop Oval Punch & Crumb Cake Cardstock, I punched a piece of Whisper White which I had stamped the sentiment using Wild Wasabi Ink, & adhered to the Scallop punched piece. I used the Large Oval Punch for the Whisper White. I again dyed 3 small white flowers using the Bashful Blue Re-Inker, applied a silver brad in each & adhered to the card.
I’ve used a couple of retired products making this card, but they are able to be substituted for current products. The flowers come from a big box of misc flowers – pre-SU – I have & dye from time to time so that I am able to use them up.
