Today’s video shows how to make this fabulous fancy fold card, called
an open step card! I saw it last week when a demo friend of mine
in Australia posted an open step card in my Facebook Group
called Happy Crafting.
I checked on YouTube to find out how this card is made, and
then adjusted the measurements to fit an A6 (C6) card. I designed
the first card around the Petal Passion Suite, which was really
easy because the Petal Palette Stamp Set has co-ordinating dies
called Petals & More, and beautiful Designer Series Paper (DSP)
called Petal Passion.
For the video, I used the new Share What You Love Suite which is
currently available on early release, in the form of three bundles.
I found the biggest challenge was that there are no dies that
co-ordinate with this set, and I don’t like to do a lot of
fussy cutting on videos because I appreciate a lot of crafters just
don’t like fussy cutting!
In the absence of co-ordinating dies, I used oval and circle dies
to cut the images, and I fussy cut just three yellow flowers
which helped to balance out the design. I think the finished card
would have looked rather bland without the small amount of fussy cutting I did!
Overall, I think this is a fabulous style of card, and thank
Lilette very much for sharing hers with us all in the Happy
Crafting FB group. I hope you decide to give it a try, too – I’m sure
you’ll be glad you did! ☺
That’s about it from me today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
