Welcome to Day 3 of the Graphic 45 and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog hop!
I always love creating with Graphic 45 products….they just make my imagination and creativity soar!
I decided to make a 3D step card because I enjoy fussy cutting and layering the beautiful images on the Graphic 45 patterned paper.
The right adhesives and the gorgeous Botanical Tea collection combined to make this step card design a breeze. I used Crafty Foam Tape, Dodz, my E-Z Dots Permanent Refillable, and 3D Foam Leaves.
There are many different kinds of step card templates out there, but I used a very simple one that is easy for you to copy. Simply cut a piece of paper 5″ x 12″ and score/fold at the following measurements, starting at the bottom of the card: 1″, 2″, 4″, 6″, 9″ . If you’re unsure about folding, then try it first with a scrap piece of paper. If you have one, use your scoreboard.
After you have your folded card base, then just start building up the three front panels. I started with the first smallest one.
Crafty Foam Tape or even 3D Foam Squares are perfect for layering on this kind of card without creating too much bulk.
For my flat pieces, I used my E-Z Dots Permanent Refillable runner.
The Elegant Oval and Garden Gate die cuts you see are from two Spellbinders dies.
Dodz are perfect for adhering all my fussy cut elements, like the butterflies and flowers. The Dodz come in Small, Medium and 3D. I also adhered this Graphic 45 metal key with Small Dodz and it does not budge!
Those pretty sparkly leaves are made using two tones of glitter and 3D Foam Leaves.
Here is a side view of the card that shows off the beautiful dimension.
I can easily fold it down and mail it across the country to my dear friend Michelle for her birthday in September.
All of the Graphic 45 collections come with matching sticker sheets and die cuts too. I used some of the handy ready-made die cuts in my design: the envelope, tag, and sentiment labels.
