Well that is my 1st New Year's resolution accomplished! I was determined not to blog until I had sorted out my craft stash and space and had a new home for everything and everything in its place. (I may well be going nuts in a few days time though when I can't remember or find where the new home is for the item I need a.s.a.p.)!!
Another resolution I made is to try new card shapes and techniques out and this is the first card shape here a 'Side Stepper'. My good blogging buddy Debbie of Love Paper Crafting
used this card shape on her blog and when I commented that I had only ever done centre step cards before she very kindly popped two of the ready made shapes in the post to me so that I could use and also see how to make my own version. This card along with a matching tag was made for a swap and is now safe to show as the recipient has received.
Stripe backing card is actually the base from a custard tart box!
Topper is by Hunkydory 'Flutterbye Wishes' Aqua Spray.
Large butterfly is Memory Box's Isabella98507/Pippi 98508.
Small butterfly punch from Tonic Studios.
Sentiment is a stamp by Hero Arts.
Side view of card.
Bakers twine from stash along with the pre shaped oval for the sentiment.
