Step Cards 2 - Double Sided Step Card

The second card of the Step Card class for March 2nd

Welcome back! This 2nd Step Card was so much fun to create. I love how the Step Cards encourage one's creativity. I made this one into an Easter card.

Can you see how the three smaller butterflies in the center are attached to clear acetate strips?  Center one is behind the middle folded section and the ones on either side of it are mounted to the front behind the Easter sentiment.

Here are some close ups.

A view from more over the top of the card, next.

As you can see I used the leafy flourish stamp on either side without re-inking to create a soft ghost-like look. The butterflies were stamped and cut out, then applying Star Dust Stickles with my finger for a little glitter. I used Platinum Pearls Liquid Pearls on the butter fly bodies and the  butterfly plaque at the bottom center.

Once again I used MFT Die-Namics Leafy Flourish on the center back piece behind the butterflies. Love that die! I promise you I don't use it on the third card I'll post for tomorrow.

Thank you again for stopping by, and come by again tomorrow for a peek at the third Step Card for this class.

Happy Crafting and hugs!

Your card is gorgeous. Doubly happy because I have that die. I would also like the dimensions if it's not too much trouble. Thanks.

Hi there. I followed you. Fantastic double side step card. Would you by any chance have dimensions and instructions or a youtube vid for this one. I am new to card making and this is the most inspiring I've seen but have no idea where to begin. Thank you.

J and D Pry said...

I love this card. I am going to make it for my daughters birthday in April. But I have one questions why do the score line at 8 1/2"....did I miss a step?

Sabrina said...

J and D Pry - In answer to your question- the last fold needs to be a "mountain" fold, not a "valley" fold. However, there is some give needed there for the embellishments we place at that last fold, therefore the extended cut and last scoreline. It is there for a little give. If that last scoreline is folded, it no longer serves it's purpose well enough.

I hope that answers your question J and D Pry. Thank you for asking and for your sweet comment. I hope you have fun making your daughter's card and that she will enjoy the love you put into you creation for her.

Sabrina :)

Do you have the coordinates for scoring and cutting for this card! Found it on Pinterest and have recently become very intrested in making these step cards. I tried but did not have a lot of success so if you could email me the size and scoring and cutting I would definitely appreciate it.
