Side Step card

When I have done this type of card before I had to measure everything out and score and cut the weird shape.  Well my Scrapbook store had a sale this summer with big cuts on a lot of products and they had this die set 40% off, so I just couldn't pass it up, all the dies you see here came with the kit other than the layered labels the sentiment is on. HERE IS A LINK if you want to see how they suggested to use the die set.  It looked to me like they used tooth picks for the stems, I wasn't sure about going that way, even though I would be hand delivering this one to my friend in my church craft group, so I used the swirls for the stems.

Here is the head on picture of it.


I thought I would show a side view of it too.


The leaves and stems were cut from watercolor paper that I had done in different shades of green. I inked onto the embossed areas of the flowers.

Sizzix -- Card Basic Step ups (link above) dies
Spellbinders -- Labels seven dies
DCWV -- Wild Splendor paper
Stampendous -- Birthday Assortment sentiment stamp
Recollections -- Iridescent Rhinestones

Hope you all will enjoy a wonderful weekend!!
Thanks so very much for taking the time to stop by, I know how busy this time of year gets,

Connie

Oh, I have thought and thought about getting one of these dies and after seeing your cute card and your endorsement I might have to take the plunge. 40% off is a great incentive! I love the swirls for the stems. Much cuter than toothpicks!

I love your card!!! I have only made a side step card once, and it sure didn't look one bit like yours...it turned out very amateurish.
All of your cards are so gorgeous!
