Vertical Stair Step Card

Hi There,

Thanks Marlene for sending me the link to this style of card. The template can be found here.

I must admit I am  challenged when I look at a template on a piece of paper. I do much better if I can use my ruler and take dimensions off of the real thing. When it's on paper I can't visualize it folded. Needless to say I was making the cutting and calculations way more difficult than it needed to be.

The flower is from Heartfelt Creations and colored with Copic Markers. The flower was colored and cut out a second time and then glossy accents applied. Nestabilities to cut the circles and ovals.
Butterfly from one of the new Creative Card cartridges just released from provocraft. No....I didn't buy it...there was a freebie for a week on Cricut Craftroom and that was when I used it! I did add a little ink around the edges of the butterfly and then some pearls for the body.
I should try making up a couple more of these before I forget how!

The week-end is here....I don't have any plans yet but that will probably change.
