Over on Marelle Taylor’s Blog she has issued a challenge for June to make a card and then ‘Step it Up!’
I needed to make a birthday card this morning for a good friend of mine and decided to not only make her a card but participate in Marelle’s challenge. My friend is receiving the ‘stepped up’ card.
I chose to use the Haiku DSP as it’s a favourite of my friend and I teamed it with the Eastern Influence stamp set. I also used a SCS sketch, SC233, which I also used for my June 2-step stamping class. I’ll share those items at a later date.
This is my original card:
and here is the ‘Stepped Up’ version.
I’ve only made a few additions of some brads and also popped up the flower.
I might yet try to step this one up even more but for now this will do.
