Sewn Together DT Challenge #6

Hi Everyone

Well it's time for the next Sew Many Cards Sewn Together DT Challenge, can you believe we are at #6 already - it seems to me like just last week we were doing the first one!

Our challenge this week was to make a Stair Step card - we can do any colours and images but it had to be that technique of card. So here is mine example

For my card I decided I would do a Christmas card and help get all those done a bit more, I chose to use two of the Sew Many Cards images - one of which was a new release yesterday. The images I chose are called Tayla, Miki & Jaden Christmas carols and Tayla reindeer - they are just so cute! As I think I've mentioned before Tayla is my favourite character but I do love Jaden too so when I saw the new Carollers I knew I had to use it! I coloured both images with my copic markers and picked some papers from a Deicuts woth a View Christmas stack for the background. To finish the card I made some poinsettia's from a Quickutz die, cut the Noel from with the Girls are Weird Sizzlets Alpha set and added some organza ribbon from my stash.
Here I've tried to flatted the front two steps down a bit so you can get a bit of a better look at our carollers.

For this picture I turned the card to the side so that you can see the steps a bit more. To make my card I cut a piece of card stock to 12" x 5" and scored it at 1",2",4",6" and 9" and them did mountain, valley, mountain, valley and mountain folds which then gives you your base card ready to decorate.

So I hope you like it! Now it's your turn to try, you can find all the details for the challenge on the Sew Many Cards blog and this is also where you will need to link your creations - Angela will be offering a prize to someone. If you need more inspiration then you can visit my fab team mates to see what they decided to do, please also leave them a comment - they are great creators and deserve all the praise they can get.

Well that's it from me - 'speak' to you again soon
