Hi, Lucy here again. For my second make this week I have made a card which could be given to the recipient when my two home decor items are given as gifts. It is an 8 x 8 stepper card so pretty big as I wanted to have scope to use plenty of the papers. I cut a panel of the film strip paper Thankful for the main front piece and two smaller pieces, one of the book paper Moments, and another piece of Thankful for the folded front pieces and a large piece of Moments for the inside panel. I stamped all over the pieces with a selection of the stamps with Smoky Grey and Onxy Black VersaFine in the same way as I did for the mirror, adding in a Kaisercraft set called Periwinkle which I just had to buy as it seemed to replicate the flowers in the designs.
For the pop up piece on the front stepped section I die cut a doily shape out of the Remember paper (and an extra piece in black card for strength). I stamped leaves from the Art of Life stamp set onto the grid paper and made some rolled roses as for the mirror. I fussy cut a floral sprig and a butterfly from the Collectables pack and stamped Admit One from the Life Sentiments stamp set onto the little butterfly tag and assembled these onto the doily. I then adhered the bottom half to the front panel so that it popped. You can see the back of it below where the card is laid flat.
To finish off, I added a plain Collectables tag inside the card to allow the greeting to be written. I will be back on Friday for my final make.
