Survivor Diamond Stair Stepper Card


 

Hello My Crafty Friends,

Today I have for you a Diamond Stair Stepper Card which Susan Tierney-Cockburn did on her Susan's Garden Live recently she got the idea from Sam Calcott of the UK.  

My card is another survivor card although it is not for breast cancer it is for a sweet lady that I just recently met - she was my sleep study tech.  Through the evening we talked and I learned that she was a cancer survivor it was Soft Tissue Sarcoma  (yellow is color for this cancer hence the yellow rose and purple is for all cancers) which is same cancer our youngest son died of.  

Sam Calcott's YouTube video for this card can be found here

To decorate the front of my card I chose Spellbinders Susan's Garden dies starting with S5-507 Floribunda Rose from Garden Gate Collection.  Rose was cut from Susan's Garden Specialty Paper, colored with Copic Y15 Cad Yellow and shaped using Susan's Garden Ultimate Tool Kit.  Susan's YouTube Video for creating the Floribunda Rose can be found here
Lily of the Valley S4-1085 of the Spring Flora Collection YouTube Video found here
Eucalyptus and Berry Branch from S4-1079 Foliage & Ladybug from Autumn Flora Collection YouTube Video found here    I used small Styrofoam balls colored purple for my berries.

Essentials by Ellen Courage Stamp & Die set was used for sentiment.  This is a set that Ellen Hutson had done a few years ago - a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Thank you for stopping by today I so hope that it has inspired you to create a card for someone that has survived this horrible disease.

Until next time - Happy Crafting!

Christine
