Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog.
Are you in total Christmas mode yet? I am just about done with my cards and hope to finish the last of them today. This year as I made them I stamped the inside sentiment as well. So they will be ready for addressing and mailing.
But, today I took a little break from Christmas cards to show you a card I created with a new Camping set bundle from CottageCutz. I made this one for my weekly DT post and it is also a stair step card.
The Camping Bundle is packed full of dies for the outdoor enthusiast and can help you create some really cute scenic cards. There are 12 new dies included in this set. And, it looks like it is on sale. If you buy the entire set you can save 55%. Each individual die is currently 30% off the list price.
I am using several dies from this new release. So let's get started with some details on my stair step camping card. I used an outer stair step to create my camping scene. I bought the stair step card at a local retailer. But, here is a tutorial from Splitcoaststampers that shows you step by step how to make your own. This card will fold flat for mailing and measure 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". It's a standard A2.
I started the creation of my scene on the 3rd step and there I placed the snowcapped mountains and forest trees. I sponged the white background with a soft blue ink. I used 2 sets of mountains to fill the width of the step. The forest trees are cut in a dark green cardstock. They are a border stamp so it was perfect to use here.
Campfire Clothesline, Woodland Friends and Camping Phrases dies on this part of the card.
In the center part of the step, I used the Campsite die for the directional arrows and the Forest Critters die for the little hedgehog.
