Stepper Card Tutorial (Echo Park Blog Hop)

Hi Everyone
Please note that the Blog Hop and competitions previously detailed on this post have now closed. You can see who won the Echo Park giveaways on their blog here. You can see who won my giveaway here. Please see below a list of those who participated on the hop - I encourage you to visit their awesome blogs for heaps of fabulous inspiration!

Simple Stepper Card
I have created this super easy Stepper Card and I have a little tutorial at the end of the post showing exactly how I made it. I have used the fabulous Seasons Greetings Collection and have incorporated the papers, stickers, chipboard pieces and brads into this project.


The wooden star(from Kaisercraft) has been sprayed with glimmermist and I placed a tiny chipboard star from the collection in the centre. 


The tree has been painted and sprayed with glimmermist again to give a little texture and I used a few of the brads to add some dimension.  I cut the card 5" wide (see below) and it fits easily into a 5.5" square envelope



Simple Stepper Card Tutorial
This easy technique can be applied to make a card any width. The complete card shown above was made from a 5" wide card base
