One of the card techniques I have been hesitant to try is the Stair Step Fold. It really looked difficult. The challenge at Stampin Sisters in Christ is to try something you have been afraid to do in the past. Now was the time. What fun. I am not only happy with the results, it was not as hard as I thought and will be making more. Isn't that usually what happens when we face our fears - they aren't as bad as we thought they would be. I owe my inspiration to Dawn Lusk. She made a card using this side step technique, the sand, the shells. But I'm not going to show you her card because her talent is so way beyond mine! Okay, I'll compromise - here is a link to her CARD.
I used a Fiskars template for the embossed waves.
Pile It On - 2 or more folds
Word Art - scripture
Simon Says - anything
DYSU - under the sea
