Blue and White Christmas Stepper Card

Hi Bloggers,

Today I have a Stepper Card to share -

I purchased a Hougie Board last weekend. The booklet that I got with it boasts that you can make the easiest stepper card with it. True! Making the blank for this card was easy peasy.

I stamped the Creative Expressions Tatty's Christmas Tree in Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. I used a paint brush to draw some of the ink out around the edges of the layers of the tree, the pot and on some of the baubles. I used some Pearl Shine Cosmic Shimmer Drawing Ink on the garlands and the fairy.

I cut the image out using the largest of the Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles dies.

I cut some polka dot paper (from Polka Doodles Sundae of Seasons) to fit the large side panel and added my image with foam pads.

I cut a border using the Spellbinders Scalloped Edgeabilities dies and inked whilst still in the die with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. I added this to my front panel on the right.

I cut a panel to fit the middle section on the right of my card and popped it through my Cuttlebug with the Couture Creations Drink Me Embossing Folder. I inked the raised areas with Chipped Sapphire and added the panel to my card.

I added another piece of polka dot paper to my back panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Tatty Button Text 2 set using Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink and cut it out using a Spellbinders Labels Two die. I inked around the edges with Chipped Sapphire and added it to my card as shown.

Hope you like the card.
