This was a fun project for me. I haven't made a step card in awhile, and while I love learning new techniques, I enjoy  revisiting some old ones for variety. . I decided to do a side step card for these challenges .  The challenge at Mod Squad (Frosty the Snowman) was to use snowmen.  I oped for digi images from Beccy's Place  because I could size them for this project.  I love dimension and texture on a card.  The side step card provides lots of dimension, but I also created levels by using pop dots. I am not skilled enough with my photography to show the many levels.  The texture does not  show up that well either, but I used some white  embossing powder on the trees and the song lyrics.  The  front snowman has a piece of a cotton ball on his hat and the snowman on the second level has a cotton ball snowball in his hand ready to throw at you. I also used home made flower soft around the fence and on snow hills.  The fence and trees are IO dies. I used a digital image of the song lyrics of Frosty the Snowman for a background.  This actually came together quickly because I used images and die cuts that I had in my stash.  The only thing I didn't have is the lyrics from Frosty.

I will enter this in the  Dies are Us Winter Wonder  Land
in Mod Squad  Frosty the Snowman
and the Simon Says Wednesday challenge.


  1. I am familiar with a step card, but a side step, I have not seen before. This is just amazing and so much detail and texture on it. I enlarged it so I could see everything. It's like looking into a globe, you can just gaze for a long time. Wondering what all of the characters on this card are doing. I'm going to have to do some research on side step cards. You have really inspired me.

  2. This card is just so stinkin' CUTE, and very creative. I love the eyes on some of the snowmen, very whimsical!!! Love all the detail and color too, as well as the flower soft snow. All in all a winner in my book!!!!
