Hello my friends. Look at me with another post already! This post is a bit special. First because this card is for a special person, secondly it is my submission for the Jinger Adam's Design Team. Jinger was the spokesperson for Provocraft and is now venturing out on her own with her own product line. (plus her own shoe line as well :-) So without further ado, here is my card.
To re-create the card, start out with a 5½" x 10½" piece of Kraft card stock and score at 1¼", 2½", 4¼", 6" and 8¼". Fold the card stock mountain/valley style (up and down) to create the card base. Now the fun begins.
Cut 3 strips of pink card stock at 5¼" x 1" and 3 strips of designer paper at 5" x ¾". Edge all the sides using cream acrylic paint.
Begin decorating your stairs by adding die cuts and trims. To create dimension, I often use pieces of cardboard to pop my elements up. Below, I have used an old pizza box. It's the perfect thickness.
Above is the frame and bird being prepped and below is how it looks on the stair step. You can see that I added cream paint on these two elements to make them look like one piece.
Just keep adding die cuts and trims until you are happy with your design. I used my computer to create the verse. Printed it out on regular printer paper and mounted it onto pink card stock. To make it look as though it was part of the collection I added cream paint to all the edges before adhering it to the card.
Thank you for stopping in and I hope you have a chance to try your hand at a stair step card.
