And now onto my project!

I used the digital version of 
'Pool Friends'
for my card.

As soon as I saw this cute, cute image,
I knew I wanted to make a step card.

I started out with an 11 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of blue card stock.
I scored it at 1 1/4",  2 1/2", 4", 5 1/2", 7 1/2" and 9 1/2".
You can make whatever width you want to fit your image,
but I cut mine at approx. 5 3/4".

Next you fold mountain, then valley, mountain and so on
alternating each one.
When done I just trimmed off the back piece I didn't need.

After printing the image I colored it in with Copics.
(If using the stamp version, stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink).
Once colored I fussy cut just along the top 
as shown in the finished card.

I adhered a piece of white card stock to
When cutting, lay your die face down on the adhesive backing side
NOT the card stock side.
I cut two waves using a Joy Crafts die.

here is a side view.

Once cut I simply pulled off the backing
and using my 'finger' tool. I applied Waterfall Glitter.

I also applied glitter to some of the 'waves'
on the image using a Sakura Glue Pen  and 
more of the Waterfall glitter.

The image and waves were adhered to the step card
with Tear-ific Tape 1/4".

Now make sure to leave comments along
the way to win the ENTIRE release of August

Never made a step card before, it looks like fun. Your use of the glitter on the ways in the front piece and the middle piece gives it more depth, love it!
