Side Step Card

Hope you have all enjoyed your Easter break. I have - the weather here has been as near to perfect as possible. Also, I have spent many hours working out how to set up my blog, and have learned so much, but realise that there is so much more to learn.
I love making side step cards...they are so different, and non-cardmakers are always fascinated by them. An essential piece of equipment I believe, is my beloved Scor-Pal. It allows very precise scoring, and crisp folds on all cards, but particularly when multiple folds are required.
I made this card 2 weeks ago, and the glue attaching the flowers was not even fully dried when a lady saw it, and insisted on buying it. She barely gave me time to photograph it.

This little hedgie always makes me smile, and I have often used him for many different occasions. He looks as if he is concentrating so hard on delivering his over-sized bouquet.

Stamps - Penny Black 'Wonderful' (set of clear stamps in the T for Transparent series)
Paper - DCWV 'Citrus' 6x6 stack
Cardstock - Bazzill
Dies - Spellbinder, and Memory Box 'Olive Branches'
Punches - Martha Stewart, Carl
Flowers - Syntego, Lincraft, Bizzy Becs
Other - Scor-Pal, Ranger Stickles 'Crystal', ribbon cord from my junk stash

Thanks for looking.
