How’s that for blog candy?? Without further ado.. here’s my project:


 
I am using a new center step fold.  This was my first attempt, I used my new Stampin' Up Gumball Green paper and inks.  I used SU Celtic Knots stamp set for the long knots from years ago and Amazing Arts Green Man, sentiment and Celtic knot.  I punch the sentiment with a SU label punch, the small circles with CM punches and used a Spellbinders circle (cut and emboss) for the Green Man.  I added some flowers from the $1 bin from Michael's and some pearl bling from want2scrap.  And pop dots!  I used a you tube video but altered the measurements for an A2 size.  Cut your 8.5" x 11" in half on the long side, make a cut 1" in from both sides.  Make the cut from 1"-6.5" on both sides of the card.  Then score on the outside 1" strip at 1", 2" and 5.5".  Score the middle of the card at 4.5".  Fold up, then down, then up.  It is pretty easy.

 

Now do an Irish jig to the next blog: Sarah!
 
Here’s the line-up should you get distracted by other Leprechaun trying to trick you! Thanks for joining us today and be sure to wear green March 17th so you don’t get pinched!!

  7. Step cards so great. They can be displayed rather than just laying around and nobody can see them. Love the celtic knots. Great job.
