Another Tri-Steps Card

On March 8, I shared with you a Tri-Steps card and it was a hit.  Today I wanted to share another card using this same fold.  This one uses Marina Mist as the card base and I used White, Daffodil Delight and Mambo Melon with it.  It was afraid it was a bit gaudy, but several girls who saw it said it was one of their favorites!  So, I'm showing you today. 

For the center of the card, I cut a 3" square and punched each side using my Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch.  I made more of these punched "ribbons" in the Melon and glued those behind my Daffodil ones. 
Here is a close-up of the sentiment.  It's a Scallop Oval mounted onto a 1-3/8" circle, and layered with a large oval.  Those little flowers on it and on each corner are made with one of the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack punches.
Here is a close-up of the middle of the front.  That's the teacup from Tiny Teacup.  I cut the "Hello" from under it so I can use both stamps independent of each other.  How do you like the tiny pearl "jewels" on the teacup?  The teacup stamp is dotted so I thought the pearls would be a nice touch.
 Now for the inside of the card.  Again, I punched a 3" square using the Ribbon Border punch.  I used designer paper from  the Brights and Subtles Patterns DSP Stacks.
 In this shot, yoou can see the stairsteps. 
I am not goinng to take space to show the instructions for this card again.  You can find them on my March 8 entry.  Good luck making your own!!

Thanks for stopping in today!!  Smiles, Laura
