Halloween Step Card

Greetings all! I should start this post with apologizes that I didn't get a photo of the side of this card as it's not easy to see the "steps" in my card from just the front...humm...have to work on that! This is another card from my class a few weeks ago and while I'm not a big halloween person, I couldn't resist these glittery pumpkins and ghost stickers that arrived in the store earlier this month. Aren't they fabulous? (We have sparkly snowflakes and snowmen too!) My step card is covered with numbers from SU! (a retired set), background stamps, birds, crowns, and sentiments from Tim Holtz, and darling glitzy paper from (I think) Imaginisce. The middle panel is showcasing some fabulous swirls from Papertreyink. And how to do you like my choose of sentiment? Funny, right? Hopes, fears, halloween...Oh, I'm just so clever! LOL! Want to know how to create a step card? It's super easy, just follow these directions: Start with a card base of 11” x 5.5 “ Score at 2.25”, 5”, 7”, 9”, & 10” Accordion fold the card to create the “steps” Decorate each step How is that for quick! The hardest part of this card...deciding what fun embellies to use to decorate! It's going to be a busy week on the blog over the next two weeks...good news for those of you who are following Paperie Petals! :-) The SALT challenge post will be live on Thursday and next week is the new Tiffany Doodles challenge! Stay tuned.... Enjoy!

Halloween is, of course, my favorite holiday, so I enjoyed the card. You may even see one in your mailbox someday :)

Oooh. Great feat of paper engineering. I don't believe that creating this card is as easy as you say!

I love everything about your card!
