Centre Stair Step Card

I've not made any cards for a while now but had a few occasions coming up so made a couple of cards.

The first was for my mum's birthday.  I'd seen a lovely centre stair step card style which I wanted to use and there were some great instructions here.

I used some polka dot card and went for a butterfly theme.  I've used 3 different butterflies, one is from my Marianne die and the other 2 were sent to me by Caroline.  Caroline makes some lovely cards and other bits and bobs and you can find her here.

I coloured the butterflies with a promarker and then used glamour dust and stickles and some flat back pearls to decorate them.  I cut out a mat with Nesties and embossed it with Swiss Dots which I then coloured over with the same promarker.  I had some ribbon with purple dots on it so put that along the bottom and added a stamped circle sentiment.

I also put some purple polka dot paper on the inside and a Labels 1 mat on which I printed a sentiment  and used distress ink to colour.

I really like this design of step card and wil be using it again.
