Side Step Chantilly Card

Hi there.

Welcome to all my new followers and I hope that you find my blog interesting and inspiring.  And thank you for the lovely comments and likes as well.

I did promise in my last post that I would be featuring a Christmas card, but unfortunately, my order has been held up and I have had to resort to using the last of my Chantilly stash to create this post.  However, I am hoping to be participating in the first Australasian CTMH blog hop featuring the new Holidays with Heart products next weekend, which  I am really excited about  and I can’t wait to see what we all make.  So next week, NZ customs (?) permitting, I should be able to do a Christmas card featuring these lovely new papers and embellishments.

This week I have done a side step card with the instructions from a different source.  Splitcoaststampers have a loads of tutorials covering lots of different techniques.  Here is the link:

This card is very easy to make with only one cut and several scoring lines to create the card.  I am really pleased with how it turned out and here it is:

Side step card. Side step card.

 

The materials used are all CTMH products:

Colonial White cardstock

Cotton Candy cardstock

Chantilly papers

Outdoor Denim ink

Alcohol Markers – Pear and Cotton Candy

My Acrylix stamp sets – Card Chatter – Sympathy, You are My Happy, Card Word Puzzle

Clear sparkles – coloured green with the Pear alcohol markers

3 D Foam tape

Non-Stick Micro Tip Scissors

Fiskars Deluxe Surecut Craft Paper Trimmer

Tombow adhesive

I love using the clear stamps as it is so easy to place the image where you want it.  For the green leaves on the face of the card I have used the small leaf from the Card Word Puzzle stamp and stamped it several times to create the look of a larger stamp.

For the matting I have trimmed each layer down by 1/4 inch each side – see my Cardmaking 101 how to do this.

The flowers have been fussy cut using the scissors and coloured in with the alcohol inks which I am really enjoying using.  I have also used 3 D foam tape on one of the flowers to create more dimension  and depth with the flowers.

I hope I have inspired you to try something different with your cardmaking.

Happy Crafting

Patricia
