For a boy's 7th birthday

There's a new challenge over at  Outlawz Twisted Thursday and this week it's ANYTHING GOES. Our sponsor the month of November is Ppinkydolls, but this time I used one of my rubber stamps (Bildmålarna), colored with Promarkers, as I needed to make a card for my nephew who will celebrate his 7th birthday this weekend.
As for the shape I went with a step design made of kraft paper.The first step was decorated with a rope embossed paper, a string with Dienamics die cuts attached to it and some die cut starfish and seashells made with a Memory Box die. The second step us decorated with die cut waves from Memory Box and some more starfish. Then the third step and panel has been designed to look like a horizon with boats. Here I used stitched oval dies and letters from Dienamics, as well as one from Memory Box for the number - it's hard to spot but it's there in the upper right corner. The card was no quickie, but lots of fun to make.

This card is also for these challenges:
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Pile It On - #96 Fancy Folds
Allsorts - At least 3 diecuts

You are on a roll...this is so well balanced, Pia. IT really has such an aesthetically appealing look-- all of the patterns are arranged perfectly, which seems like such a feat considering the steps! Amazing.

I do love stepper cards - I think they always look a bit special, even though mine often take a bit of fiddling to stand up properly tbh! Love all these nautical elements.

Patricia St Martin said...

Your nephew much of loved his card and you personalized it for him. Is this your first step card??? I do not remember seeing a step card before and this one is a 3 stepper card. But I can't get here as much as I would like to. Sorry I'm so late with my comment but been so busy with family over and things to do.
Hugs Pat
