Not really my own design, this one. I saw a card like this online a while ago and loved it, so I wanted to do something similar.

I based this card on one I saw ages ago, made by Hayley Bignall (link to it here). I used Tattered Lace 'Rose Vine' embossing folder (for the background), and 'Delicate Flourishes' dies. I roughly handcut the spirals for the small coiled roses, and made the cream roses and leaves using Sue Wilson Classic Rose dies. The greeting was printed using 'The Skinny' font.

While browsing card-making blogs for ideas and inspiration, I found a lovely double sided stepper card, which also had a fantastic step-by-step tutorial for the cutting/scoring process. Here's my take on Sabrina Radeck's inspiring original design. I chose lilac and lemon for my colour scheme and added some floral elements, keeping the butterflies on the front panels.
Now that I've mastered how to do this fold, I'll definitely do some more for other occasions. Decorating all the little panels was fun. Sabrina Radeck's original design and the (excellent) step-by-step tutorial for the cutting/scoring/folding the double side stepper are both here.

I wanted to use my watercolour paintings on some notelets, so I scanned the best of my paintings, cropped the image and added a simple sentiment, then printed them onto watercolour printing paper. Once printed, I double-matted onto co-ordinating cardstocks.

I forgot to post this back in September but I really enjoyed making this fun and easy gatefold card. Cards for younger men can be difficult but this is perfect for anyone who likes to play or watch darts.

A neighbour asked me to make a 90th birthday card for her mum. I used white and lavender pearlescent papers, flat-back pearls and silver mirri card, for a really soft, shimmery effect. I used glitter stickers for the numbers. Quite traditional and feminine, I think.
