Laura's Step by Step Father's Day Tutorial

Good Morning Krafty Friends and Followers

I am going to show you how to make a very simple stepper card for Fathers Day



Materials

1   sheet A4 black card
1   sheet A4 silver mirri card or silver embossed card
1    A4 print out from Vintage Motors CD page 17 Disc 2 (easel Card)
1    A4 print out from Vintage Motors CD page 18 Disc 2
1    page from an old paper back book
4     silver card candi embellishments
My Minds Eye stamp #CTB174 tyre tread
Distress inks, Walnut Stain and Broken China

*****


This is the finished card.

Step 1

Fold your black card in half and placing the fold towards the top away from you. Measure 15.5 cms along fold and along the middle of the card. Make a feint line and cut down from fold 10cm.

*****


Step 2

Fold the smaller section down, but not completely to the edge leave at least a centimetre.

Step 3  Make additional folds in this narrower piece to form mountain and valley folds.


Decorating the card

Mount the main image on, silver mirri or linen embossed silver card, with a very narrow border. Do the same with the backing paper of the map.

Using your page from an old paper back book tear it and glue along the bottom portion of the easel card. When it is dry distress it with ink, I used Broken china to match the blue in the image.

Using the tyre image stamp I curved it on the stamping block and stamped across the paper with Walnut Stain to make a single tyre track.

The silver card candi is glued into each outer corner and the greet embellishment  placed in the middle with foam pads. The clock, speedometer and circle image were added to the folds of the stepper card. These would have been nice to have mounted again on images cut from circular dies but I wanted to keep the card simple.

A greeting sheet could be added for the sentiment to be written on. Use a piece of paper 12 x 24 cm folded in half it can be glued under the image along the top fold.


I hope you enjoyed my tutorial
