How To Guide - Step 1

Die cut THREE 6" circles from black cardstock, which is at least 250gsm. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Score across one of the circles, approx 1cm from the edge. Apply red liner tape ABOVE the scored line.

Score ONE of the die cut circles in half then adhere this to the first circle, thus creating a card blank, with the top page folding in half, as seen here. 


How To Guide - Step 3

Apply red liner tape to the bottom half of the front page, BELOW the scored line only. 

Adhere the third die cut black circle on to this, so the bottom is now glued but the top part of the front stands proud. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Remove these decorative papers from the Bloom & Wild paper pack. Die cut TWO 5" circles from the striped paper and ONE 4 1/4" circle from the Poppy paper. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Adhere one of the striped papers to the inside page of your stepper card. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Adhere the die cut Poppy paper flush with the top right edge, of the die cut striped paper. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Tear a panel of this patterned paper, adhere across the bottom third of your topper and trim off the edges. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Adhere to the front of your stepper card and set to one side.

How To Guide - Step 9

Stamp this beautiful Poppy with the Midnight hybrid ink and use the die to cut it out. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere with foam pads, to the left of your card.

How To Guide - Step 11

Stamp the "Wonderful", from the Saying Hello Collection, in Midnight on to a piece of white card. Secure the coordinating die in place. Cut a scrap from the black patterned paper set aside earlier and secure the coordinating layering die on top, before running both through your machine.  

How To Guide - Step 12

Adhere the detailed sentiment on top of the layering die cut.

Holding the stepper front page where you want it to "stop", adhere the sentiment in position using DOUBLE foam pads. This is known as your "stopper" and will allow the front of your stepper card to stand proud. 

How To Guide - Step 13

Add a touch of sparkle with your Stickles, to finish your card.
