Today's technique challenge was this fun fold called stair step. That is what it looks like when you have it horizontal, or it can be a vertical card and then it is more of an accordian fold. So fun.
When I looked at the samples, I immediately thought of a tiered/layered cake, so I made a birthday card. I used pale plum card stock and then added perfect plum scalloped icing. That was a fun look, then I thought of these fun silver thingamajigs that Terri sent me for my birthday. Thanks Terri! I added them to the scallops. Then I thought that back layer needed a bit of somethin', so I used one of the cuttlebug folders on it. Oh yeah, that looks like some nice icing detail, don't you think? I cut a slit in that top fold to add the candles which are just strips of cs run through my cuttlebug. I then used one of the petals from the old SU daisy punch as each flame with a little yellow stickles added to that. Oh, I like that look. What do you think?
For the Wedding Cake, I used the cuttlebug to add dimension to the layers, then used the taffeta and organdy ribbon and added layers of the flowers from the pretties kit with a clear rhinestone brad for the center. I stamped the love and embossed it before punching it out with an oval punch and then mounted it onto an embossed scalloped oval. There is plenty of room to write a message for the happy couple.
So, what do you think of today's creations?
