 Here are the stars we made last night at the fun night,

By the light of the Christmas Candle.
Simple 8 by 8 card  with matting layers,
 and a pretty Christmas floral detail

The most wonderful time of the year.
A Side Step Tent Card

I find that step cards collapse, because the side step is to weak.
so have come up with this design to give the side step more weight.
its a simple Step card with the addition of a 9cm Tent card attached to the back. which sits in between the 1st and 2nd Step.


Side view
Each step is decorated with matting layers
all images over hanging the steps are cut, then remounted on to matching card, 
and re-cut. to give them extra strength.
