The Next Level Issue #4 - A Step Card

Our challenge this week at The Next Level is to create a step card. Well at first I thought OMG!!! I'm in over my head then I grabbed my trusty Scor-Pal and away I went,it was amazingly easy making the the base for the card. The rest just fell into place. The hardest part was cutting out those little mice. Here is my creation.


Image House~Mouse Twinkle Toes

Paper Bazzill, Doodlebug sugar coated paper and Imaginisce Fairest of Them All collection

Medium Primsa colored pencils, Gamsol, blending stumps and Memento Ink

Embellishments Fiskars rain dot hearts, Rhinestone flowers and ribbon from personal stash and Stickels

Tools Quickutz Revolution, QK alpha die, spellbinders oval dies and Scor-Pal

Tip of the week: When scoring the step card remember to flip the paper back and forth on the Scor-Pal to make your steps. EI: Score #1 page face up, score #2 page face down. It will make the step fold easier and have less chance of tearing a step.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!
