Side Step Card Christmas

Side Step Card-Christmas Scene 
Side Step Card
Side step cards are ideal to create a scenic card. I wanted to make a quick Christmas card for my daughter's friend and so used stickers and lots of glitter to glamorize an otherwise simple card.
Well rather than glamorizing it with glitter I think I made a bit of a mess![Well my daughter forgave me!--as she is only 5years!!]
Really admire my blogger pals who can really jazz up a card with glitter.[If you want to see how glitter should really be used check out my blogger friend Tejals blog-- she is the Queen of Glitter!!]
I used locally available glitter paper to make the Paper folding Christmas tree.
Paperfolding Christmas tree
The tiny golden balls on the Christmas tree are "bindhis" [Indian women adorn their foreheads with these!]. The violet "Pie lane"flowers are a gift from blogger pal Snehal . I love making these Paper folded Christmas trees and even my 5 year old had a go at making them!
Here is the link to the Paper folding Christmas tree tutorial.
Here are links to some varieties of Side step cards

Wishing all my blogger pals a Merry Christmas.

  6. Especially like the use of the shiny paper folded Christmas Tree. I've been experimenting with glitter and am working on a Tree made from a paperback book (one that you do not care to read again) in which you fold the pages. Have the pages all folded. Will photo before & after I spray paint with the green glitter spray paint and decorate and post soon.
