Cards with Multiple Folds

I typically stick with the good ole standard A2 card size.  But once in a while, I will try something new to me.  Then, I wonder why I haven't done this sooner.

So this cutie I have had colored, in a stack of die cuts for some time now.  She is a fairy I purchased from one of my favorite Etsy shops for digital stamps, Prettygrafikdesign.  She is colored with Copics, layerd on a couple of pieces of cardstock that I sprayed with shimmer mist.

I added a layer of of white cardstock that I used my New Bo Bunny die.  I then layered all of that on some Recollections purple patterned paper.  I added that same patterned paper to the sides.  I also used my new Lawn Fawn stamp set to make the balloons and cut them out with their coordinating die.  I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from the same set.  This I centered at the bottom of the card using my Perfect Stamp positioner. ( I so am in love with that stamp positioner!)

I learned how to do the Center Step Card by watching the tutorial over on Splitcoast Stampers.  You can watch it here.  While I was making the card I  had  to make cuts from 1 inch to, I think 6 1/2 inches one inch from each end of the card.  This became a challenge because I have completely rubbed off the 1inch mark and any marks up to 2 inches on my a paper trimmer.  So I just had to guess where the 1 inch would be.  This means I need a new trimmer, right? 😉

This makes a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card, which means I need to make an envelope to hold it.  But it is such a stinkin' cute card.  I am so happy with it.

I did color the balloons with copics also.  I added some clear Wink of Stella to add shimmer to the balloons.  I couldn't resist sneaking in 3 Nuvo drops in silver to add a bit of something extra.

I am entering this in Creative Craft Cottage Challenge #83:  Shaped Cards or More than one Fold.
