Asian Step Card

Here's another Asian project brought for a shoebox last week. The girl's thought I was crazy to take all these photos but it helps me to remember how to make this card and also gives me an opportunity to share it with all of you! Project finished size is 4-1/4" x 5".

Crumple the flowers and use a white gel pen for the center of the flower.

Side view:

Here are the supplies:
(1) 4-1/4" x 9" Old Olive CS - see info below
(1) 4-1/4" x 5" Old Olive CS
(1) 4" x 3" Bashful Blue CS
(1) 4" x 1" DSP
(1) 4" x 1-1/4" DSP
(1) 4" x 1-1/2" DSP
(2) Close to Cocoa Branch die cuts
(10) Trio Punch Flowers in Pretty in Pink and Pixie Pink
(1) Pagoda die cut (non SU)

I was able to get the measurements for this step project:
(1) 4-1/4" x 9" CS in Old Olive, on the 9" side score 1-1/4", 1-1/4", 1-1/2", 1-1/2", 1-3/4"

Position and place the printed paper on the sections as shown.

Stamp Dolls on Whisper White. Stamp dolls again on scraps of Pixie Pink, Rose Red, Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink. I colored the faces in using the Blush Blossom Stampin Write pen. I also colored int he tops of the boys hat using the Bashful Blue pen. The Pretty in Pink Pen is used for the flowers in the girl's hair.

Here are the cut dolls and their cute clothing. Adhere clothes on top of the Dolls. Then place dimensional to position on to the steps.
