90th Birthday

Phew!  It's been really warm again today, but I needed to make a card for a 90 year old.  I really like stepper cards - and they are so easy to make using a Hougie Board.  Perhaps it was the weather, but I changed my mind about the colour scheme so many times with this card.  At least I have a few cards half done in various colours which I can make into other cards!  I settled on white and shades of purple and I managed to use up some more of my snippets to make the decorations.
Instructions for my card:
 Start with a 21cm x 28cm piece of white card.
Draw a pencil line down the centre, lengthwise.
Score at 3cm, 6cm, 10cm, 14cm and 21cm to the pencil line - scoring across right across the card at 14cm.
Using a craft knife, cut along the pencil line between the 3cm and 21cm points.
Fold as shown.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenge:
Pixie's Crafty Workshop ~ Use Your Snippets - Week 135
Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge # 39 ~ Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge ~ Anything Goes


  1. Oh Liz - this really is fabulous! I love stepper cards and the design and colours are great. Nice to have some instructions too.

    I don't know for sure but think your papers may be from Papermania's 'Heather' capsule collection? I love that range and A5 is such a handy size.

    Hugs, Di xx

  2. Thanks Di. You're right about the papers. It was actually an A4 size pad given to me by a crafty friend for a birthday present. Crafty friends always know what to give you, don't they! :-) xx

  3. Fabulous card, love your design

    Thank you for joining us at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.

    1. Lovely to meet you, Veerle. I'm now a follower on your blog - I think! The instructions were not in English, (possibly Dutch?), so I hope I clicked the right buttons. Looking forward to seeing more of your creations. xx
