I was met with a challenge last Monday when the card to lift in the fiskateer gallery happened to be a split-step-card. Talk about being lost!!! I googled it (love that feature!!! LOL) and came up with instructions for how to do the folding and the measurements. I set out to follow the steps -- and ended up with a 6-plus inch card!!!!!!!! NOT a good thing!!! I didn't even try to embellish the card, 'cause I knew it would be a hopeless cause!!! I ended up giving up all together!!!
I knew I had to create some type of card for the challenge though, so today I attempted the split-step-card again. I sat down and tried coming up with my own measurements -- making the card about 4 inches square. I think the purple paper I started working with helped too, 'cause I loved the paper, so I WANTED the card to turn out! LOL
I added layers to the card, and then embellished it with flowers from my stash.
I didn't really like the card's lop-sided look. I wanted to make it look like a square card look. I came up with an idea of adding a little tag to the top "stair". I also thought it would be great if the message you write in the card isn't on display. With my tag idea, you can still display the card, but you have to take the tag off to read the message. :)
When it's fully assembled, it looks like this. :) I love how it turned out! This may be the start of something...
