'Joy' Pop-Up Stepper......

I was watching Create & Craft (as you do) the other day, when I saw this style of card made. I thought it looked great so I got out a pad & pen and started drawing the design as the demonstrator was making it. After a few (!!!!!) aborted attempts I finally cracked it! Who needs polypropolene templates anyway?! The card format is like a double side-stepper, but the front section pops up due to an extra fold ( you can see the extra fold in the next photo). Now guess what people.... I can't stop making the blessed things!
They are really quick to put together (once you've done the measurin'/scorin'/foldin'!) and the panels give you lots of room to play with.
I used DCWV 8 x 8 paper/cardstock for this card, using gold card for the mats and 3 different papers for the panels. I cut a shaped panel for centre of the card from champagne coloured pearlescent card with a gold mat. I embossed the smaller panel with an embossing folder. 'Joy' was cut from dark red glittercard with a gold shadow, layered up, then adhered to the embossed mat with foam pads. A large poinsetta with some punched leaves were adhered above the word with silicone glue.
Beautiful red ribbon with a green centre stripe was adhered to the long, thin panel and a bow added. Two smaller embossed panels were adhered with foam tape to the side step panels and additional leaves and some gems were added to finish the card.
