Over at MSE the lovely Claire has set a new challenge - try something new. I've been wanting to try a stepper card and I bought a Hougie board recently which came with instructions for just that! This is my first effort, not perfect in some ways (but being a perfectionist nothing I ever do is perfect!) but I've learned a lot. I used 250gsm uncoated card, which I thought would be good enough but although it stands up well I do think a thicker card would have been better. I was a bit stumped as to how to decorate the steps but luckily had a set of co-ordinating papers and although not very elaborate it all goes together. Would I do another one? Yes but I'd want to iron out some of the little niggles I have with this card and I think I'll search for some inspiration. (Another of my rubbish photos, it's really not as wishy-washy as this in real life!)
The image is recycled from an old Christmas card, matted onto dark blue pearlescent card then gold shimmer card.
Papers and sticky ribbon are Dovecraft's Winter Wonderland.
Snowballs are white pom poms which were in my stash.
Trees cut from one of the papers and mounted onto gold shimmer card.
Holographic borders and glittery peel-off sentiment from stash.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
