Tool Box side stepper card

IMG_6284 (Medium)I had the idea for this tool box card,and spent a little time working out the cuts and folds, it is a basic side stepper card,with only one side step – usually you have a couple of steps on the right hand side, but this one only has the one valley fold. I cut matching cardstock for the drawers on the left hand side, and added a fine strip of silver cardstock to the tops of the drawers. On the right hand side i cut a piece of yellow cardstock and punched holes to resemble pegboard, then it was just a matter of stamping ( stampin up tools stamps) my tools.Really pleased with how this one worked out and hopefully find some time to make a couple more before my craft fair in June! This morning I dropped our little puppy Luna off at the vet for her desexing operation, and I feel terrible!I hope she forgives me! the house is very quiet without her and I can’t wait to pick her up this afternoon.I am heading into the craft room to take my mind off it all…til tomorrow….

Grap0hic 45 a gilded Lily

IMG_0689 (Medium)IMG_0690 (Medium)I Hope everyone has had a lovely Christmas break!Today I am showing a couple of side stepper cards I made with graphic 45 A gilded lily paper collection. I have done a very quick and easy youtube video tutorial on how to do these shaped cards – I have adjusted the measurements so that they fit into a standard envelope, and I think they still have the same wow factor..the link is over here on the right hand side of my blog.All I added to these was some ribbon and lace, and fussy cutting of the papers added the rest of the decoration. Today is a gorgeous day here in Adelaide, a much nicer 27C expected today,and a perfect day to relax and recover from the Christmas madness! til tomorrow…
