Mothers Day Side Step Card

I am hooked to craft magazines these days. There are so many which are my favorites i.e. Papercraft Inspirations, Quick Cards made easy, Creative Cardmaking, Simply Cards and papercraft and Crafts Beautiful. I made this Mother's day card using free papers from Papercraft Inspirations issue 84. This is my first attempt at making side step card.I am adding it to my gift list for India trip :)I have tried to keep the color of the card in pastels to coordinate with the papers. Made the fringed flowers by cutting 10mm strips. The felt leaves are cut using sizzix die. For matting I used marianne dies. The label on the second step has been hand cut. The sentiment on top step is from TPC Studio's All in the Family set.

A Bookmark

This time I want to share a bookmark that I made. It's an embroidered bookmark inspired by Erica Fortgens. I have a lot of Erica Fortgens card and bookmark making kits, but never got around to making anything. Then I found a book written by her and made an embroidered heart card. The instructions were very simple and easy.
This week creative craft challenge is holding a challenge to make a bookmark. I thought of using one of the bookmarks from the kit as template. I used a yellow card for embroidering the pattern then cut it. Stamped a white card with a star like foam based stamp.Again cut 2mm strips of yellow card and glued them around white card to make outline. Then pasted the embroidered design and added some flat backed sparkly flowers.

I am entering the bookmark for following challenges:
creative craft challenge: bookmark
YNS Challenge: Stitching
Paper Pretties: Bling
