Dragonflies on Inner Stair Step Cards
by Anne Thompson

Today's cards feature die cut dragonflies on pre-scored Inner Stair Step Cards, cards we'll be making at the local senior center this week.  I found several packages of these cards in my stash, but there are tutorials online for making stair step cards using an A2 notecard, a craft knife, and a scoring tool to cut and score the center panel.

I precut all of the dies from Memory Box Bluebird Gingham patterned paper.  I used these dies:

I used a glue pen to secure the pieces to the card, laying it out kind of flat, being careful to keep the glue away from the fold lines on the steps.

Here's another one, this time using Memory Box Bubblegum Dots patterned paper, placing the die cuts in different spots.

And a third card where I used plain white cardstock and no cattails.  I also used a foam dot to pop up the dragonfly.

These cards do fold flat to put in an envelope for mailing.  Because some of the pieces stick up above the folded card, I will use a larger envelope than the typical A2 size (and probably extra postage).  I can also add a sentiment easily on the front center panel.  Another idea for this month's Insects/Butterflies/Dragonflies Challenge!

Happy Crafting!
