Our challenge to you this time over at ABC is to design a birthday creation. Card, gift tag, invitation, as long as it has a birthday theme we want to see it.
I created this for a member of my team over at Crafty Cardmakers who has just had a birthday, and who is in a swap with me on a craft forum.
It’s a stepper card and I started off with a sheet of 12x12 bazill basics card and trimmed it down to 14cm wide. I then scored it at 3,6,10,14,19,24, and 27 cms and folded it along those score lines. I cut co-ordinating sheets of card in slightly different shades to decorate the steps and embossed two of them with two different embossing folders. The front I used a Memory Box border die and the back is a Martha Stewart border punch.
The image is a digi from Sassy Cheryl and I coloured her with my promarkers, flexies and prisma pencils. The flowers are from my stash but I edged them with glitter to give a bit of sparkle. The diecuts are various marianne and doohickey dies and the dragonfly is a porcelain embellishment. It made it through the post in one piece apparently, phew!
I do hope you will join us over at ABC and check out the other team creations whilst you are there.
