I love making step cards with fancy folds, the die set I used for this card base makes it really easy and it works great with the beautiful papers, stamps and dies from the Enchanted Mum Collection.
Here is the finished card closed:
Spellbinders Happy Days Die Set, Grand Calibur, Neenah Papers Natural White Cardstock, BoBunny Blush Double Dot Cardstock, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Ranger Distress Ink Pads (Picked Raspberry, Shaded Lilac, Spun Sugar, Bundled Sage, Dried Marigold, Brushed Corduroy), Foam Squares, Glue.
Die cut 4 step card base using Spellbinders Happy Days die set and pink cardstock. Using small square dies from the set, die cut 4 small images from the Enchanted Mum paper collection.This is the Spellbinders Happy Days die set:
Fold 4 step card base at creases created by the die. Die cut 2 scalloped borders using pink cardstock.
Die cut 2 panels for step card base using step insert die from set and a 6” x 6” square front from paper collection.
Glue 4 small square images and left and right step panel cuts from paper collection onto pink step card base as pictured.
Stamp Enchanted Mum set onto natural white cardstock multiple times using ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink in several colors. Die cut with coordinating Enchanted Mum die. You need 5 pieces of the smallest flower to make one Mum and only 2 pieces for the Daisy. I created a total of 3 Mums and 2 Daisies for this card.
Color the edges of flowers with distress or chalk inks. Shape flowers using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. I used the 8mm tip and the curler tip in the set. Layer 5 pieces together using glue to form Mum. Shape and color 2 flower pieces to form Daisies and embellish center with Prills.
Stamp Open Leaf and Classic Leaf sets with black ink onto natural white cardstock. Die cut with coordinating Classic Leaf die set. Stamp dragonflies swirl from Enchanted Mum Bouquet set and die cut with coordinating die from Enchanted Dragonflies die set. Stamp sentiment banner from Enchanted Dragonflies set and die cut with coordinating die from Enchanted Dragonflies die set. Color all pieces with distress inks.
Glue scalloped borders to left and right edge of step card base. Layer Mums, Daisies, dragonflies, leaves, swirls and sentiment banner on step card base using glue and foam squares.
