Happy Fall

Hello everyone!

It's Donna here thanks so much for stopping by today!  I am here with CottagCutz showcasing the 2nd part of the Christmas and Autumn dies release. If you haven't been over to the online store, you should definitely go and take a look at all the new goodies.  The best part is the Harvest Scarecrow is 25% off plus many more of the new release for a limited time. Don't procrastinate, rush right over to the store and get some of these wonderful dies. I love them all, I have so many ideas in my head I cannot get them all done fast enough!


I am featuring several of the new Autumn release dies, so lets get started on how I created my Split Step Card, it can also be called Side Step Card.  

1.  I cut all the pieces out and inked the edges.  My table was so messy, I did not get a chance to take a picture, 

2.  I cut the base of my card 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, 

2.  I then cut and scored my paper, where the red line is you put your paper in your paper cutter at 1" and cut down to 6 3/8.  The other lines you score at 1", 2", 3 1/8", 4 1/4 and 6 3/8.  This image is not mine, I found the image on google.

3.  After cutting and scoring the base of the card, I added my layers.  On the left side the layers measurements are 2 3/8 x 3 1/8, the plaid layer 2 1/4 x 3.  On the right side top layer measurements are 2 x 2 1/4, plaid layer 1 7/8 x 2, the second step is 2 x 1, plaid layer 1 7/8 x 7/8. The layer under the grass is 5 x 1,

4.  I added a couple of layers on the inside of the card to write or stamp a sentiment.  The measurements are 4 x 2 7/8, the white piece 3 7/8 x 2 1/2,

5.  I finished the card off by stamping my image on the second to the smallest die from the double stitched square dies.

Whew, I think I got everything!  I had so much fun making this card, I hope I have inspired you to make one for yourself.


Here are some more pictures of the card:
