Hooray... Hooray... Its a Holi Holi Day

Okay now I've got that really annoying song in your head it's time for a brand new theme over on the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog. Let's see your 'Fun in the Sun' creations. I've opted for a caravan holiday card. Well I do live at the seaside and we are inundated with holiday makers at the moment. I created a side stepper card (details below) using one of the backing papers (printed onto cardstock) from the fabulous Work & Play 3 collection. The ticket sentiment, border, caravan and sun worshipper are all pre coloured from the cd. I just added a yellow flower & brad to mimic the sun.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

If you'd like to make a side stepper card from scratch just follow the instructions below.
  • You will need a piece of card stock 14.5cm wide x 24cm long. Now depending on if you want a left or right handed stepper to where you start scoring. My steps (in above photo) are to the right so you need to score from the left.

  • you need to score (from the left) at 2cm and again at 4cm the full width of the card.
  • then at 8cm, 12cm & 18cm you score BUT only down to 7cm. It may pay at this point to draw a pencil line in from 8 - 18cm and 7cm down as this will be a cut line.
  • From the left at 14cm you will need another score line going back up to that cut line.
  • You then need to use a craft knife and metal ruler to cut your cutline.
  • Fingers crossed if you then follow the diagram below you will end up with a side stepper card.

Many thanks for stopping by. I'd love it if you would leave a comment.
Have a great day!
