I like skype-craft-sessions

Hello and Thank you for stopping by!!! A lot of things happened in my life during the last months and because of that I didn´t got to craft and blog . I´m sorry my dear followers. I will stop making promises when I will blog next, as its hard for me to keep with this promises, sorry.

Yesterday night I was able to have a skype-craft-session with my amazingly talented friend Petra from South Africa.  Or lets say she beared to craft with me. We decided to try a technique that we both never did before. We came to the conclusion to do step-fold-cards for eachother.
So while my friend Petra got her card for me done in no time, I struggeled with putting my pieces on the right spot and needed about 4 times more time than she did. Yes I´m a slow crafter at the moment. As Petra loves pink, flowers and butterflies I tried to put all of these elements on her card.
I used my Stampin-up flower petal punch and a fitting stampset I got from an amazing friend for my birthday to make the flowers on the card. The butterfly-doily was made using my new spellbinder die (which I love). The ornament in the back was made using my new Martha-Steward-punches :) nice, huh?
Inked everything with pink ink as Petra loves pink lol.
So to not let you wait any longer, here is what I came up with:
My Step-fold-card for Petra
