Spooky Fun Halloween Edgelits Step Card

Step cards always get a "wow" when you give them, and this spooky fun Halloween Step card with the glimmer paper pumpkins and the glimmer paper moon behind the tree branches is sure to get a double wow. Scroll to the bottom of this post for a template for cutting step cards

The bat, witch and other parts are die cut using Stampin'UP!'s Halloween Edgelits dies . . . except for the moon . . . I used a circle punch for the glimmer paper moon.  BTW: the most effective adhesive I've found for adhering things to glimmer paper is Glue Dots.

The stamped spider webs are from a set called Spooky Fun. Both the stamp set and the dies are in this season's Fall Holiday catalog. You could certainly hand draw the spiderwebs so its not like the stamps are essential to this project, but it does have some other really fun Halloween imagery. The stamp set and dies are sold individually, but if you decided to get them both you can bundle the product and save 10%See the product chart below.

The concept of a step card is simple. I like making step cards because they look hard and always get a wow, but are actually very easy to make.
  • Start with a normal piece of cardstock, 8-1/2" x 5-1/2"
  • Make a vertical slit in the mid-area to separate the card into 2 halves.
  • On one side it needs a score line at the half-way mark (for a horizontal card thats at 4-1/4")
  • On the other side score lines for the steps

Here is the Template for this card

Thanks for Stopping by, I hope I've inspired you to go play: Before you go, take a minute and browse previous posts. If you see anything you like I'm happy to help you get the product or just to consult and explain further how the project was made . . . its all about having fun with our hobby.
