MEMORABLE MEADOWS SIDE STEP CARDS

MEMORABLE MEADOWS ALTERNATES

This month, I embarked on a creative journey making alternate cards for the March Memorable Meadows Paper Pumpkin kit. Inspired by the need to replenish my birthday card stash, I decided to delve into the beautiful world of side step cards.

The Inspiration Behind the Project
Every project has its muse, and for me, it was the charming wood elements included in the kit. There’s a rustic beauty in these elements that I felt needed to be highlighted. Using Stampin’ Blends markers, I colored these wooden pieces, transforming them into vivid components of my cards. The result was nothing short of gorgeous, breathing life into the cards and giving them a unique charm.

Crafting for Every Occasion
What started as a quest to create birthday cards evolved into a versatile card-making session. The beauty of the Memorable Meadows stamp set is its flexibility. By simply changing the greeting, these cards can suit any occasion, from expressing heartfelt sympathies to celebrating joyous milestones. This adaptability is what makes card making an endlessly creative craft.

Standard Sizing
These Side Step cards fit perfectly in a Medium Stampin’ Up Envelope, these cards are standard-sized, making them ideal for sending out to loved ones. 

Guiding You Through Every Step
For those eager to try their hand at this project, I’ve prepared a comprehensive guide. Complete with step-by-step instructions, a handy template, measurements, and a complete supply list, creating your own side step card has never been easier. Plus, I’ve included a video tutorial to walk you through the process, ensuring a smooth crafting experience.

Continuing the Side Step Journey
This project is just the beginning. Below in the SERIES section, you’ll find more Side Step tutorials, offering a plethora of creative ideas to explore. And the journey doesn’t stop here.

Stay Inspired with Upcoming Tutorials
The crafting adventure continues with the APPT (A Paper Pumpkin Thing) Blog Hop this Friday. Join me as I share a new fun fold alternate card tutorial, along with more innovative ideas from the APPT crew to keep your creativity flowing.

Kit Refills are Available
For those who have fallen in love with the March Memorable Meadows kit, I have good news: refills are now available in my online store. And looking ahead, join me in April for some Paper Pumpkin fun with the Delicate Wings kit. Expect butterflies, beauty, and, of course, more alternate card tutorials and exclusive videos from myself and the PPX crew.

Happy crafting!
