Die-Cut All Occasion Step Card

I've made step cards before but they always seemed to require too much measuring, cutting and folding. The Sizzix die set, Step-Ups (from HM Ben Franklin Crafts), makes it easy to cut out a step card with one simple roll of your die cutting machine.  Once I cut out the base from Kaiser Craft 12x12 card stock (Sage and Grace) (card stock 12x12 packet from BFC), I easily folded it and added the embellishments including a Jolee's Boutique vellum butterfly, paper roses and lace.
Also from Kaiser Crafts is a Sage and Grace stamp set (sold at BFC) which I used to make the floral bouquet (stamped with green Momento ink and colored in with watercolor pencils).  The sentiment badge came from the 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 Kaiser Crafts paper pad (purchased at HM BFC) and an Avery Elle word die was used to cut the 'celebrate' from copper colored foil.  The Sizzix step die card has so many possibilities that I think I'll use it again for my next card. I think you'll be surprised how easy it is to totally change up the look. Visit this site again to see my next step card and please leave a comment if you have some time to hearing from you!

This turned out so pretty! I've always wanted to try step cards but they seem rather complicated.
