First Stairstep Card

Click on any image to enlarge.
This is my first attempt at the stairstep card. I thought I was doing a different take on it by adding the part on the left, then I see that a couple designers did similar cards. I did come up with my own dimensions, as I hadn't seen this size on the web. The top picture is how it will look when it come out of the envelope. And the bottom is the open version. I really had fun putting the elements together. I'm entering this in four (4) challenges:


The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - folds
Cute Daisy May - bright & cheerful colors
Sketchy Colors - dark green, light green & pink
Polka Doodles - hearts & flowers


The heart is cut from HD, and I used three MS punches. The butterflies are made with one of the new stamp and cut punches, which I really like. I also used the feathered leaf and the new pansy border.

TFL,
