Happy Easter Step Card
3D Card Making with 3D Pictures for Reference
This Easter Step Card is fun to make although you might need to put in more time and effort to complete it. I made this Happy Easter card one afternoon with no design in mind. All I wanted to do was to try making a step card and since it's approaching Easter, I thought why not make it a happy spring card to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
So I chose pink as the dominant colour for this card and a Magnolia rubber stamp as the focus point. I also added die cut butterflies as well as punched borders. And not forgetting the flower stamp by Inkadinkado.

Decorating the Inside of Easter Step Card
For the inside of this step card, I just trace accordingly and cut out white cards to fit into each panel. On the top panel, I stamped the words "Celebrate this moment..." in Memento black ink and the scripture verse John 3:16 also in black on the top centre panel. On the side panels, I used a fine marker to hand write 'JOY' and 'HOPE'. I had some smudges so to cover those, I doodled flowers. The lower panel, I left blank for a more personal handwritten message. View this image below to have a better idea of this Easter Step Card.
