I love cards that can stand up and are a card and a decoration. I think this one fits the bill. I found the pattern and directions on YouTube. If you search Step/Ladder card it will pop up. The card folds flat to 4 1/2 x 6 inches. I made an envelope, but a 1/2 fold card envelope would fit it just fine.
This card is super easy to make and such fun to decorate. I used an embossing folder to give the card stock dimension.
The Happy Easter was created on my computer using PrintShop. The little butterflies are a punch.
Don't you just love the sweet Frilly Bunny? I sure do. I think I need to find her a fluffy tail....hmmmm! Aren't after thoughts fun!
It was fun hiding the Egg Cetra eggs in the Fresh Cut Grass. I die cut the eggs from scraps I had left from a class I taught earlier in the month.
The Picket Fence is one of my all time favorite dies. It seems to fit perfectly where ever I use it.
The Elsa Butterfly backed by the Lyndon Butterfly was the perfect fit and I think a sweet addition to the top of the card. Originally I was going to use buttons, but I think butterflies are perfect and give the card another layer of dimension.
I covered the back with the green squares, but did not decorate them. I also forgot to take a photo of the back! Shame on me!
If you have any questions, please drop me an email. I'll be happy to answer them. I hope you try making a card similar to this one. It looks impressive and is so very easy.
Off I go...sending hugs and wishes for a most happy crafty month.
