This card was so fun to make! I have made stair-step cards, but never a side-step like this. I wrote a tutorial for Our Daily Bread designs' blog as I was creating this.....check it out HERE!
I used a new set, "Randi's Song", from Our Daily Bread designs. This set was dedicated to Randi, my fellow "Breadstick", who is going through cancer testing right now. Please read all about Randi and this new set HERE. I used some of the new Stampin' Up colors, Concord Crush and Cajun Craze for this card, along with Very Vanilla....I just love purple and rust for fall cards! Everything was stamped with Concord and sponged with Cajun. The leaves were colored with sponge daubers, cut out, Ranger Glossy Accents dots were added to mimic dew droplets. The May Arts satin ribbon was tied with a Bow Easy and the finished card was sprayed several times with "Irridescent Gold" Glimmer Mist.
Here is a close up of the leaf, so you can see the shimmer from the Glimmer Mist!
The following challenges were used in the making of this card:
