La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge #46

If you're looking for the Your Next Stamp Challenge #20, it's the post directly below this one. Thanks!

* * * * * * * * * *

It's time for another La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge! This week our theme was chosen by Kristine and is to make a Step Card - it can be a regular step card, a side step card, or even a double step card. If you're not sure what a step card is, please check out the La-La Land Crafts blog for some helpful links! Hey - why not go there anyway and check out all the completely awesome DT sample cards!

I decided to do a double side step card and here it is:

Here's an angled shot:

I used Sunflower Rosie and made up a pattern for the card myself:

The cardstock is 5.5" x 8.5": score/fold on all the dotted lines and cut the two solid lines. In case you can't see the side measurements, they are 1", 2", 3 3/8", 4 3/4", and 6 5/8". And then the middle fold is at 4 1/4" - make sure you only score between the 2 cut lines! Don't fold the entire card in half or it won't work!

I tried to make the steps go up in even increments, but couldn't do it exactly otherwise the measurements would have been really crazy!

Rosie's dress was paper pieced and the rest of her was colored with Copics. I stamped 3 extra sunflower heads, colored with Copics and cut them out. Their stems are just thin strips of the same green cardstock as the "grass." Both the blue and green patterned cardstocks are old Fancy Pants journaling cards that I've had forever. The butterflies are Martha Stewart punches glued to wire.

I'm also entering this card into Charisma Cardz - creations with something metal on it (wired butterflies) and Allsorts - Create a Scene.

Before I go, I want to let you know that whatever image the hostess uses on her project is 20% off for the week of the challenge, and this week it's Lala on a Swing!

We'd love to have you play along with us! All the details can be found on the La-La Land Crafts blog. TFL!
