Here's another cute character card for you. Don't you think that this nana looks like she knows how to have fun?! I used an extended stepper card base and more papers from the A4 Forever Friends Spring Time pack. These papers are really lovely, pretty colours and patterns and very good quality paper. Grab them if you can! To make an extended stepper card take a square card for your base and a length of cardstock as wide as your card. Score it to create 2 mountain folds-the second fold should be taller than the first- add 1cm for attaching to the base card.Apply double-sided tape to the 1cm portion of the concertinaed section and adhere the base card to it.
The nana was cut at 4 1/2" from lilac bazzill with a white shadow and adhered to the centre fold of the card. I cut a scalloped square to fit the back of the card and added a square of yellow gingham paper matted onto lilac cardstock. The other panels were covered with alternating patterns of paper, the front panels having a ribbon and bow added. The sentiment was cut from lilac glittercard and a heart punched from pink. The sentiment was adhered flat and the heart raised with foam pads. I cut some little daisies from lilac glittercard (only because I broke my punch!), added yellow pearls to the centres and scattered them around the panels. I punched a tiny heart and added it to Nana's lips, gave her some pearl buttons on her dress and bag and blinged up her specs a la Edna Everidge! Go get 'em Nana!
