CUTTLEBUGSPOT STEP CARDS



































Good afternoon
Over at the Cuttlebugspot this week we are continuing on our theme for the month of different style cards. This week Nilda asked for a step card and this is my take on it!
My step card base is a sheet of 8 1/2x11", for the base I used a turquoise glitter striped cardstock I've had in my stash forever! I used my Scorepal and scored at 1"then 2" then 4" then 6" then 8 1/2"and folded like you would a fan. This gave me my step card so now just to decorate it.I used my Cricut for the cuts and Happy and Birthday is cut from Martha Stewart Elegant Cakes at 3" shadow in black and base in pink and pale green pearlescent card. Base cuts have been embossed with Cuttlebug folder Swiss Dots.These have then been pop dotted on to the top and bottom steps of the card. The row of presents are cut from Straight from the Nest cart  and I cut 2 border cuts (one on flip) and one  single in tangerine, lilac and pink pearlescent card and the top layer in black These have been embossed using Cuttlebug A2 combo Welcome Baby ,CB folder Victoria and Sizzix folder Diamonds.There you have it a bit bold and reminds me of Liquorice Allsorts!
Make sure you visit the Cuttlebugspot as my DT sisters have created the most fantastic stepper cards this week and we'd love you to join us in this fun challenge!
Nilda isn't feeling well this week so get well soon Nilda
