I’ve Got My Eye On You!

Hi everyone,

It’s time for another MFT Stamps Creative Challenge. For the August Design Team Creative Challenge the theme is....  "Fun Folds” Now I am a big fan of fun fold type of cards, so I loved it when I saw this month’s challenge.

I decided to create a Double Sided Stair Step card this time round, this is something we were playing with recently at a club I attend each month so wanted to play. This is another variation of the stair step card.

For my card I used one of the new MFT Stamps à la modes I Spy stamp set. The numbers down the sides of the card are from the By The Numbers Die-namics & Stamp Set. The sentiment was stamped and layered using the Die-namics Sweet Stack Labels, it looks a little different because I cut the bottom off to make it flush with the bottom of my card. If you look at the top photo of my card you can also see that I used the Die-namics Oval Chain Border in the middle stair in front of the à la modes girl. I added an epoxy sticker over the glass portion of the magnifying glass.

Here is the inside of my card, sorry it was very hard to take a photo of this. I used two more of the sentiments from the set.
