Spring is around the corner! Yesterday we stopped at my mother-in-law’s and sure enough, her daffodils are coming up!
I started this step card with the Orchard Tree Frame die. I cut it three times and layered/glued them together. If you get a little glue where you don’t want it, I linked below to the adhesive pick up I use… it’s the best one, in my opinion! The background piece is Memory Box Morroccan Bluebird card-stock, I ran it through the big shot with the frame die but I didn’t shim it, that way it didn’t cut clear through. The pieces that did cut completely I pieced them back in. The next layer up was cut in black and the top layer in white. The white layer I colored with Copic Sketch Markers.
I used the Summer Border die for the bottom. I cut it out of Memory Box color card-stock and pieced it together. I cut two green pieces, cutting the flowers and stems completely off of one. Then I sanded them, just a touch!
I LOVE the Parker lower case alphabet! I die cut it in white and mounted the words ‘hello spring’ with thin mounting squares that I cut into strips. I used Poppystamps Picket Fence die and Memory Box Puffy Clouds, Set of Swings, Lavish Branch and Vintage Bicycle dies. I cut the swing out of white card-stock and colored it with Copics to look like rope and a tire.
Step cards are easy to make and so fun to create a scene with! There’s a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers, HERE.
