This weeks challenge on the Splendid Stamping with the Greeting Farm it Bling it. I really challenged myself making this stepped card.. I think it took me a couple of hours to complete. The grass is what challenged me the most. I used one of the old Sizzix die. The die was not long enough to make it across the card, so I had to piece the grass together. I started adding layers to over the seams. In my opinion the end result was fantastic.
I will also be entering my fun card in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog.
To make a stepped card you have to start with a 12 x 5-1/2" strip of paper. Score it at 3", 6", 8", 10" and 11". This will create a 1" step and 2" and a 3" step.
I overlapped the paper on each step so that it was higher then the step. I made sure that the paper covering the 3" step measure 4-1/4, for a standard envelope.
