Birthday Greetings.....Ladies card

Good Morning Peeps

I am off to visit the Beautiful Bride to give her the garter I have been making (no I have not shown it completed yet as I want the Bride to be the first to see it complete).  Before I hope off down there though I thought I would share a card which I made for one of the girls in the office.....

I love this step fold card, though I am not sure I have done it the right way round, but Jackie is left handed anyway!  I used a Snippet of K&Co card, Martha Stewart and EK Success punches, a Snippet of ribbon and this is the first outing for my Artisitc Outpost Bloom and Grow stamp set using Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink which I embossed with clear embossing..  Some sparklies in the centre of the butterflies and a few staples to hold the ribbon.

I am going to pop this over to Artistic Outpost as it is using the Bloom and Grow set.  I can see this becoming a favourite as it is so detailed.

Off to see the fun and frolics that are occurring in the Playground before I jump in the car.  Why not make something using Snippets and join in the fun?  Lots of fun to be had in the virtual Treehouse when it is wet too!

TTFN and have a great week.

Oooer Sam, this is really gorgeous! Perfect colours to go with the image plus lots of butterflies - me likey!

There's surely no right or wrong way to make a step fold card - it's perfect! Am sure Sarn will agree too.

Gotta go - the bull needs milking!

Hugs, Di xx

I'm sure the bride will LOVE her beautiful garter... and you're so right to give her the first viewing!

Delicious card - love the monochrome colour palette, it really lets that fabulous stamp shine. Thanks so much for playing along at Artistic Outpost!

BEAUTIFUL orange stepper card. Yep . . . Di is correct . . . I totally agree there is no right or wrong side for the steps to go. It's perfect just as it is.

Have a nice trip out. Bet she loves her garter and I can't wait to see it in its finished state.

What a delightful card. (I don't know how to do a step card yet, so this was wonderful to see). Loved your colors, and your sweet butterflies. Impressive card, and TFS.

Lynn said...

love the colour of your card, and the idea of the stepper card. I am sure you can make them either way around depending on what your design dictates. Not had success with this one yet though. Lynn x

A gorgeous snippets creations - the stamp is fab.
I didn't think the step cards have to be on one side in particular - oh well I always like to do things diferent too other peeps Karen x
