Technique Tuesday: Side Step Card

We have some friends who are getting married in a couple of weeks and I wanted to make a special card for them.  That is when I saw this Side Step Card on SplitcoastStampers Tutorials.

The basic card looks like this once you get it folded.  You will have one large panel and three side panels to decorate.

The background is Baja Breeze with a polka dot pattern.  It is hard to see in the photo, but all the panels were rubbed with Illuminate ink to give it a subtle shimmer.

The skirt was made with the new Creped Filter Paper.  I also rubbed this with Illuminate ink to give it a soft shimmer.  The top was made with Glimmer Paper.  A few pearls were added for a necklace and belt.  The bottom layers were edged with Dazzling Details.

The dress was added to the large panel as a focal point of the card.  I love the way it hangs over the top and edges and seems to stand out.

The right side of the card is decorated with traditional wedding items.  The cake was embellished with more pearls.  The flowers were spread out to add consistency across all the layers.

The flowers are rolled roses made from circles and mums made from fringed strips.  The white leaves make a large impact and set the flowers off from the background.

The overall card has plenty of wedding details and works with the colors of my friend's upcoming wedding.  I hope that they enjoy this card and have many years a happiness ahead of them.
