Step by Step
Fold your chosen A4 piece of card in half and cut out with the largest parenthesis die. Ensure the top stays intact by laying the die just over the edge of the folded cardstock.
Fold the top half of the cut card in half. Cut out an oval from this half to create an aperture. This will be your base stepper style card.
Use the same size parenthesis die to cut a piece of acetate to fit onto the front of the card. Attach with glue dots.
Cut out a scallop oval from cardstock. Choose your image and die cut with a smaller oval die to fit onto the scallop. Attach to the acetate using glue dots.
Die cut a layer of paper to fit the base. Ink the edges and attach to the base of the stepper card. Use a greeting to hold the top section in place. Attach with foam tape.
Decorate the card with the dimensional butterflies.
To create the flower, die cut a few pieces of acetate with the flower dies. Cut into the acetate towards the centre.
Dab Aqua Glass paint onto the acetate and leave to dry. Heat gently with a heat gun to melt and warp the flower petals.
Use a gem brad in the centre to fasten onto the card.
