Stepping It Up for Susan

My friend Susan is away on a much deserved and earned Stampin’ Up! vacation. While she is away she asked team members to make “Simple Saturday” and “Step It Up Sunday” cards to share on her blog (  I am always up for a challenge and teamed up with my very talented friend and fellow demonstrator,  Ramsey.  I thought I had the easy job as Ramsey agreed to come up with a card and I just had to “step it up”. Well, when Ramsey sent me a photo of her card my first thought was, WOW! This is a beautiful card and already stepped up (with layers, double punched daisy, and a faceted gem). How am I going to “Step It Up?

Here’s Ramsey’s card:

My solution was to literally “Step It Up”.  You know how I love fun fold cards so I decided to make an easel card.

This is a really easy card to make. The base of my card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Daffodil Delight, 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 Old Olive, and 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White with a 1 x 4 strip of DSP from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack. The sentiment is from Birthday Blooms, stamped in Old Olive, cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits, and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To make the easel I cut a piece of 3 x 6 1/4 Daffodil Delight cardstock and scored it at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2. I adhered it to the Daffodil Delight card base before adding the old olive and whisper white layers.

The stems are stamped on a piece of 2 3/4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White and layered on a piece of 2 7/8 x 5 3/8 Old Olive. I stamped the daisy on the Whisper White and then twice on scraps of Daffodil Delight. I punched out both yellow daisies with the Daisy Punch and offset them before adhering on top of the stamped image. I layered the stamped images on a piece of Old Olive that measures 2 7/8 x 5 3/8.  I wrapped some Crushed Curry Mini Chevron Ribbon around this layer and tied a bow. I adhered the layered image to the bottom of the daffodil delight (below the score line) so the image will prop up behind the sentiment.

My grasses did not turn out as nice as Ramsey’s (and I think she may have used Pear Pizzazz ink or stamped off). The ribbon serves to step it up with some added texture (and cover up my inky mistake).
