Eastern Blooms Steps

Here's a "step card" - I ended up doing a fair amount of cutting (the flowers.) The instructions to make this type of card are pretty simple.
Basic instructions for the "steps":
- Cut (1) 4-1/4" x 11" CS
- Score @ 1-1/4", 2-1/2", 4-1/4", 6", 8-1/4"
For the card, cut (1) 4-1/4" x 5-1/8"
Let your imagination run wild for the rest: maybe photos in various sizes?

Here's a side view showing the "steps"

This is a close-up of the "back card" - the flowers have dimensionals in the back and the petals of the flowers are hand "curled" so they aren't so flat.

Here is a close-up of the front 2 "steps".

Supplies:
  • Stamps: Eastern Blooms, Happy Everything
  • CS: Raspberry Tart Designer Paper, Whisper White, Rose Red
  • Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Cameo Coral, Rose Red
  • Accys: Dimensionals, 1/4" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Stamp-a-mah-jig

Thank you for stopping by today....................hugs. Please leave a comment if you like (or don't like) this card.

Patti, This is such a pretty card! In fact, I think it's the prettiest stair card I've seen. Makes me want to get the Eastern Blooms set and I'm not esp. into Asian inspired images. You did a beautiful job! TFS!
