A simple step card...........

It's magical Monday over at Paper Cupcakes and today, Jenn has set us the challenge of making a multi fold card. Here's mine:

I've used the Paper Cupcakes images: Elvis in Boots (coloured with promarkers) and one of the variety tickets. Now - the reason I've called my post a simple step card - I've used a scalloped Craftwork Cards card blank, measured a halfway point that was wide enough for my image and then marked the halfway point front and back on the opposite side. I've then cut the middle line down to the halfway mark and scored the other lines and then folded it in, so that the original spine of the card is now the other way. Hope that makes sense!!?? It really was v easy - if it needs any more explanation, please let me know!! I've used Forever Friends retro papers and embossing folder and added Papermania ribbon and bow and a boat charm from my stash. Hope you like it!!
I hope you've enjoyed your Easter weekend, it's always nice to wake up on a Monday and realise that it's a bank holiday!! We've got a really fun day planned today - it's my great aunt's 70th, so we're having a big family outing to the crazy golf course and then off to the pub for lunch! I'm really looking forward to it, so I'd better be off, I've gotta go and jump in the shower. Have a great day, whatever you've got planned and I hope you'll leave me some love and join in with the challenge!! Bye for now........xx
