Have a Merry little Tulip Christmas
Ii love making my own background paper and I did this paper below with strips of leftover paper from various projects.I glued them onto light card. I then popped the background paper into an aperture card and placed this sweet little topper on top.
Glitterations are coming out and oh boy I adore them.
Stepper cards have to be one of my favorite cards to work with as you can just change them into so many types of cards by adding just a few folds This is a stepper card changed into a fancy gatefold card. I took all the leftover pieces of paper from my other Tulip projects and I cut them into equal sized squares. I covered a sheet of light card with double sided paper and then working from the bottom of the page upwards I started adding the squares, making sure they all butted up to one another neatly. You end up will loads of bits hanging over the edges but you just cut them off and can even use those bits to fill in any gaps. This is a unique background paper as it never end up looking the same when you make it again. A few toppers and die cuts just finishes this card off beautifully.
I took an A6 Card and made it into an easel card by folding the front of the card in half and then adding a panel to the front the same size as the card itself. die cuts, papers, decoupage, gems and a greeting create a gorgeous card.
