Well I finally plucked up the courage to have a go at a side step card after seeing many wonderful examples popping up in blogland. Will I make another? NO! Did I enjoy doing it? Not really, lol! It took far too long, was far too fiddly and I'm not particularly in love with the end result...... oh dear! Never mind, the fact remains that I 'had a go' and that's what counts..... stepped out of the old 6x6 comfort zone which probably doesn't happen often enough!
I chose Basic Grey Origins papers to work with as I think they have the right earthy feel for the theme I had in mind. These two older Magnolia Tildas seemed perfect too for creating a bit of a garden scene, as did this wonderful High Hopes sentiment and bird bath. The fence is a Martha Stewart punch and the grass is a QuicKutz die.
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
