Just for You Step Card

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  Today I have a 'fancy fold' card to share with you -  very easy one but it always has an impact - you can keep it as simple as you want - or go all out - or anywhere in between!

The card base has been formed using a piece of card stock 30cm x 10cm.  Score at 10cm, 20cm, 23cm, 26cm and 28cm.  Score in Mountain and Valley folds as shown above - it is that easy - and you can get 3 of this style card from a 30cm x 30cm (12" x !2") sheet of card stock.

The image comes from some embossed card stock from my stash.  I have sponged over it using Imagine Memento Ink in Bamboo Leaves, using a Sponge Dauber.  Next I have added Angel Pink ink over the end of the petals, followed by some white dots and finishing with a large Want2Scrap Pink Pearl - Self Adhesive.  The image has been popped up onto a negative die from the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Seth Apter Robo Square Etched Dies using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  This has in turn been adhered to Anna Griffin Inc. patterned paper measuring 9.75cm x 9.75cm, followed by a slightly larger piece of music sheet - finishing with adhering the layered image to the top of of  the largest portion of the card base.  The sentiment is from the Kaisercraft Simply Betty Collectibles and has been adhered using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares on the right end.

A row of flowers from the Penny Black Inc. Rose Edging clear stamp set has been coloured using Chameleon Pens, then fussy cut/Hand cut using scissors (so therapeutic at times) and popped under the layered image using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.

The beautiful pink roses are also from the Kaisercraft Simply Betty Collectibles and have also been adhered using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares on the left end of the second step, along with a bird I have had in my stash for what seems like 'forever!'  The butterfly is from some patterned paper and only half of it was usable - but I am happy with the side on look achieved - some liquid glitter has been lightly added to the wings.  Want2Scrap 75 Count - Pink Pearls have been adhered to the top of the frame, along with lace and pink lace flowers along the front of the bottom step.
