Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Bizzy Bec's DT - Side Step card With 3D Images

Hullo there everyone .. back again with another DT post for Bizzy Bec's. Branching out into the unknown today, with a side step card!! For a very special birthday, you see! Emily was SIX! Here is a peek!
I'll be perfectly honest I like simple layouts and these fancy folds are not simple layouts!! Bec has a great die that makes variations on this side stepping card, it is here! Don't have it, but do have simple template. Used it for guide. Here working it out on my scoreboard. Took two goes scoring to get it right.. wanted it bigger than template.
And being me, I went for complex everything else too! I used the Frantic Stamper Dies - Chevron Borders & Edgers (2) to make a whole sheet for background of alternating chevrons! Glued them down one at time, kept them in order as cut the individual ones, so as to keep *colour graduations, yes fiddly plus but great effect. *used pre-coloured sheet.
Base for image done, then cut it with largest die of SB Pierced Rectangles

Stamped two images (one for base, one for 3D image) of the Wild Rose Stamps - Dragon Birthday in Versafine Black Onyx, and clear heat embossed.
Die cut a pink scalloped base with Spellbinder Petite scallop (Disc.) and one image with Cottage Cutz Stitched Oval die (they fit spellbinder oval dies very well).
While still in stitched die, ink coloured the background to match colours used on other image already coloured with Tombow markers, and gold watercolour. Fussy cut around the coloured dragon image, cutting into the folds of the image, and then lay on shaping mat face down, shaped the image  with shaping tool to get 3D effect with minimal layers.
Attached to base image with silicon glue and allow to dry.
See here for Tutorial to do it this way.

Completed side step card:
(candle stamp on side step is from House House Birthdays Balloon stamp set, they were shaped and silicone glued too).
Six 6 is from CB Olivia die set, "th"
is from Impression Obsession Greetings die from birthday - this set here!

**Wild Rose Stamps - Dragon Birthday 
(**bought Aug '17 from Bec, still available online, but not listed, so please ask for it)
Tombow coloured pens 
Close up of the image, the gold paint used is Finetec Watercolour metallic set. Just loved this image, right down to wee crown on Miss Mousey's head.
This rather poor verse below is what was put on the back of the card, digital print out, on DP, cake image courtesy of Google.!
Now to the  Aussie shot .. a very clever photographer in our family, Greg, took this from their verandah.. amazing sky and reflections too, isn't it .... truly the sky shows the glory of God as the Psalmist says.

"The heavens declare the glory of God; the firmament shows His handiwork." Psalm 19:1

Beautiful card my friend and yes, that photo surely shows God's wonderful handiwork.
Thank you for the sweet comments on my blog. You are right. We need to pray for those teens causing such havoc. Now, my dear Hubby is waiting for me to get into the truck to go camping. We're going to freeze, but it's the last trip of the year. :-)

What a wonderful card for little Emily! How cute is that purple dragon! Looks lovely on your beautiful side step card...the chevron background looks amazing, thought it was a DP until I took a closer look! Love this card and I'll bet Emily did too!

So cute! I like how you did that background and the candles are fun details, they look dimensional, I'm guessing the effect of the silicone glue. Super card for a child.

What a lot of effort was put into this card. It turned out very well and is very fun for a birthday card! I am glad there is a die for the fancy fold as I really don't have the patience to measure and cut and so on. Thanks for sharing and have a great day!

Cobnut Crafter said...
