I like to create cards, scrapbook layouts, mini albums and altered art. I love pretty paper, glitter and coloring with Copics. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 24 years and we have two daughters. I share my craft creations on my blog at www.candyscreationsblog.blogspot.com .
Instructions: To create a 6" x 6" step card begin with a 12" x 6" piece of cream Bazzill cardstock. Line cardstock up in paper trimmer so that top edge of (6" side) is at top in paper trimmer and (12") side of cardstock is at the 1 1/4" mark and position cutting blade at 1 1/4" mark. Cut from 1 1/4" mark to 7 1/4" mark. Flip card over and cut the same on the other side. Place card sideways in Scor-Pal and score on the 1 1/4" cut side at 1 1/4", 2 1/2" and 7 1/4" marks. Repeat on opposite 1 1/4" cut side of card. On the 3 3/8" center between cuts score at the 6" mark. Fold at the score lines to create a 6" Center Step Card. For the side panels cut 2 pieces of Blazing Poppy Paper 1 1/4" x 4 3/4". For center panel trace the shape on the desired Blazing Poppy Paper and then cut out and adhere to the center panel. Cut out the red lace trim from the design paper and adhere it to the bottom of the center panel. With Memento Ink on Cryogen White Paper stamp the blazing poppy cluster image from the Blazing Poppy Vase Stamp Set and color with Copics. Detail cut out the bouquet and with Dries Clear Adhesive add Crystal Glitter to the leaves and Black Gala Glitz to the center of the poppy. Using the red and black design paper from the Blazing Poppy Paper Collection die cut with the Spellbinders Filigree Vase and adhere together to create a vase. Add colored bouquet to die cut vase and adhere to center of step card with pop dots. Die cut the tag using the Luggage and Tags Die, add Black Licorice Glitter to the center of the poppy on the tag and add to the bouquet with a Tim Holtz Memo Pin. Then on Cryogen White Paper with Tuxedo Black Ink stamp two poppy clusters from the Blazing Poppy Fillers Stamp Set. Color with Copics and detail cut out. Add Black Gala Glitz to the center of the poppies and adhere one to each side of the bottom of the card front with Dries Clear Adhesive.
