Easter and a Tutorial


Easter is this Sunday and I didn't even realize it was here already! I thought I had another week before thinking about what to cook for Easter dinner, oh well.
Today's creation is another step card (my own design) that's very easy to make. Over at Pattie's Creations Challenge, our theme is none other than EASTER!!

Step Card Details:
- base is a white card stock
- pastel papers are digital from Fred She Said
- image Duckie in Egg is digitally colored by me
- ribbon bows are from Embellishment World

Tutorial:
1 - Cut card stock to 7" by 10"
2 - Place stock on your scoreboard and score your 10" width at 4", 8", and at 9"
3 - For the front step, cut designer paper at 3/4" by 6 3/4"
4 - For the main panel, cut a solid color paper (or designer paper) 3 3/4" by 6 3/4"
5 - Designer paper panels, cut 2 pieces at 1 1/2" by 3 3/4" and place them at 1/4" from either side of solid color paper (or other designer paper)
6 - My image was composed digitally, but you could fussy-cut your image and place it on the center of the main panel
7 - Add some embellishments and a sentiment
8 - Instead of putting wording on the inside of the card, place it on the rear panel
