Color Dare #25 Ruby and Indian Corn Blue

This is my first week on the Color My Heart Color Dare Design Team and I'm very excited to be sharing this very special card with you. Our colors for the challenge this week are Close To My Heart Ruby and Indian Corn Blue.  This is the first time that I've ever made a step card and I found the basic directions for cutting the base of it here.  It was pretty easy to do and fun to challenge myself with a new card fold.  The patterned paper in the center of the card is from very old CTMH Indian Corn Blue B & T paper.  The stars were cut from the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge (star5 from page 40) at varying sizes from 1" to 2.5".  Each of the stars was layered with one layer on 3D foam dots to add dimension.  The greeting is from 4 My Friend and was stamped in Ruby ink.  My favorite CTMH embellishment is Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel and I used it for the star centers on the sides of the card and 2 of the stars on the center panel.  The star on the lower left side was stamped with Love Life star stamp.  I used a red button and white twine from the Bakers Twine Neutral Assortment to finish the card.

Here is a side view:

Please stop over at Color My Heart Color Dare to see what the rest of the fabulous Design Team have created.  (These are some seriously talented ladies and I'm looking forward to seeing their Ruby and Indian Corn Blue submissions myself!)  We would love for you to play along with us this week too!  The deadline for submitting a papercrafted project (card or otherwise) is Thursday at 9pm CT.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!

  1. WOW! what a great card, I love the stair step look. I haven't tried it but sure turned out darling! TFS

  2. I have always wanted to try this kind of fold, but never quite get past the intimidation factor, lol. You did a fabulous job! Love the star layers, Marie!

  3. Great step card. I so enjoy making step cards. Wonderful job.

  4. Hooray for YOU, attempting (and fabulously succeeding) at this stair-step card. Adding an interactive element to cards and lay-outs is always fun. This week's colour combo makes for such a joyous card!

  5. Marie, I love the step card! You did a great job with it (and photographing it!) You might have inspired me to try one!
