Have you entered the September Paper Craft or Sewing Challenges yet?
There have been some lovely entries so far - you can check them out in the gallery - see the link on the left-hand-side of the Fiskars blog.
I was the lucky winner of the August Paper Craft Challenge but I was totally inspired by Debbie's sketch and made this 90th birthday stepper card this month just for fun.
You may remember that I posted about my Spotlight shopping spree the other day ... well I had SO MUCH fun making this card using my new Fiskars Lacy Doubles Interchangeable Border Punch Cartridge and my MEGA stepper card from Fundamentals. The flat, folded card is a HUGE 6" square and even with this chunky rosette, it fits in the expanding envelope!!!
The paper is from the Bella Wedding collection, it is white with gold stripes and metallic silver stripes, perfect for decorating with metallic papers and bling. The sparkly silver alphas are dimensional foam, from the Amy Tangerine collection made by Thickers.
Do you recognise all the other Fiskars tools I used? I always use my green Self Healing Craft Mat and Finger-Tip Craft Knife, so as well as my new Lacy Doubles border punch, I used the Scalloped Sentiment Border Punch (for the outer ring of the rosette), a large Seal of Approval Squeeze Punch (scalloped circle), Flit On By Squeeze Punch (butterfly), Flowers Lever Punch and although you can't see it, there are two circles from my medium Round 'n Round Squeeze Punch, to hold the rosette firmly in place.
Hope you enjoyed this card and I look forward to seeing your entries for the September Challenges - you still have a couple of weeks to send them in.
Don't forget Debbie, I have posted my card just for fun, it is not to be included in the prize draw.
