This morning I watched a video tutorial of an open stepper card, which prompted me to ‘have a go’.  The tutorial was in inches, but I prefer to use cm’s  and although some of the measurements were converted, not all of them were.  For starters the card base was not a half A4, so as I don’t like wasting little bits from the edges, I have adapted it to metric, thus using half an UK A4  sheet to make it.

And this is the result!

7C3BA101-CE9B-419C-A533-6B6E0E4A191DI used Thick whisper white for the card base as this is nice and sturdy, and the discontinued (from the end of May) Elegant Eggplant card stock and ink.  The black and white DSP (Designer Series Paper) is from The Petal Passion series (also discontinued from end of May).

The Yellow flowers are die cut in Daffodil Delight with Garden Green stems, both from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits and the sentiment and stamped flowers are from the Beautiful Bouquet Stampset.   The ovals are die cut, but in this instance not with Stampin’ Up! product (as I have yet to buy them).

Bank Holiday Mondays Coffee and a Card will involve making this card.  If you fancy coming along, then please do…. The Mallard, Westwood Lakes, Boston UK!  (the original Boston!).

Thanks to Jan B Cards for the idea.

Cant make it?  If you would like the measurements, please contact me
