DigiStamp Boutique....Alf "Dad's Shed"


Afternoon me lovelies, hope you're having a good weekend so far...it's been lovely and sunny here today but I haven't been out yet as I've been taking advantage of the peace and quiet with everyone out, to do a bit of crafting.

I have to thank my lovely blogging buddy Sue over at Creations by Bearhouse for inspiring me to make a centre step card. I have seen some of these on Sue's blog and have always been quite envious that she knew how to make them. She very kindly sent me a template and hey presto...I've made my first step card...thank you Sue...you're a star!

I also totally 'borrowed' Sue's idea to use a flower border die along the bottom and also to colour in some of the flowers...a pretty cool idea which really made the die pop! I'll be giving this card to my Dad for Father's Day and I hope he'll like it!

Digital Image: DigiStamp Boutique (Alf- Dad's Shed)
Design Papers: Basic Grey (Porcelain)
Colouring Medium: Promarkers & Smooth White Card
Embellishments: Buttons and Dew Drops(?) from my craft stash
Tools: Memory Box Spring Border
Sentiment: DigiStamp Boutique (previous freebie)

Oh Donna, I have never seen a more stunning Father's Day card than this, I just love everything about it! I am in love with the DSB image and might have to buy it, I just love your outlay, I have created step cards before but yours takes the cake. Thank you so much for the inspiration, I hope you don't mind if I take some inspiration from it? Have a wonderful weekend, hope you get more time for crafting (think I'll start following you actually hehe, I love your Gus creation below too so need to see some more) XOX Lucy
