Step Card

I just happened upon this challenge over on SCS and just fell in love with these cards and truly they are so easy! I am going to post mine over there and will share with you the details of the card as well. I used SU Winter Post (yeah, so glad it arrived in time for this card!) and stamped the trees which are from Stampers Anonymous Believe set in kiwi on whisper white cardstock and matted on cocoa cardstock. Then I stamped the skaters in chocolate chip, colored a couple of things and then I cut around them but left the bottom portion of the paper so that it would attach to step 2 of my card. I also stamped the reindeer, matted him on cocoa and attached at step 2. The front is Ski Slope DP and the Postcard image from the set in chocolate chip. I added some stickles to the skating pond that I made and done. I am pleased with the way it turned out.

Details:
Cardstock 10.5 x 5. Scored at 1.25, 2.5, 4.25, 6, and 8.25.
Fold the card accordian style making sure the smallest fold is folded down as this will be the front of your card.
Start embellishing it!

I hope you give this one a try it truly is fun and lets you be very creative in decorating the steps. If you make one, please leave a link and I will stop over and take a lookie! Have a great day!
