Side Step Christmas Card




Happy New Year, my TJ friends!!! Kathie McGuire here wishing you a Happy Brand New Year!! A year for creativity, crafting, and trying some new and old TJ techniques.

This card features a technique from the Fancy Folds and Motion CD called "Side Step Card". You'll probably be seeing a lot of these from me, as they are my new favorite project.

This card went to a dear friend of mine--someone all of you know--Pat Huntoon. I changed the measurements a bit so that I could fit a Sizzix die cut Christmas tree on one of the steps. Other elements were from my stash: the wreath is from a Jolee's Boutique package from Michaels, the satin trees are from a roll of trim purchased years ago at Michael's, and the spiral background paper was a gift from a friend. I love this design for that very reason--I can use small pieces of various things that all come together for a great card.

I hope you enjoy the project, but most of all, I hope you try the Side Step Card technique if you haven't already.

See you in 2011!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Kathie
