Stair Card Video Tutorial
By Elena Olinevich


“Cardmaking is a kind of paper therapy for me. However each time I am looking for some new ideas for my cards.

This time I tried something new for me that I have never done before.

I know it’s not a new idea. but actually it is something that looks always intricate, I guess. I made a kind of stairs for a few layers on my cards



If you need something feminine, no doubt - Portrait of a Lady is the most feminine and soft collection I’ve ever met. I adore creating with it.



I’ve combined just a few papers and played mostly with the chipboard and the flowers embellishments. The circles and oval shapes were my focus in adding the accents



I even used the circle decorative chipboard to create the sentiment for my card



For my second card I also used the Decorative chipboard and hid the extra chipboard piece in the middle of my paper layers, and you can only see the part of the frame. I think it’s a great tip to create dimension and to add the surprise moment.


Using these folds for your card you can add the flowers into different levels of the card, and while opening the card they will work as separate parts.



I have prepared a video tutorial for you in case you would like to recreate it.

There are no strict limits on the size for your blank card, so you don’t need to follow my sample, but my card is approximately  5 ⅛” size.” ~Elena

Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem. email: {} you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or any other Case.1) Love Spells 2) Lost Love Spells 3) Divorce Spells 4) Marriage Spells 5) Binding Spell. 6) Breakup Spells 7) Banish a past Lover 8.) You want to be promoted in your office/ Lottery spell 9) want to satisfy your lover Contact this great man if you are having any problem for a lasting solution through {}

Classy and elegant. I had not really seen the patterns and solids for the portrait of a lady collection. They will be great for backgrounds for numerous cards, not just for use with the patterned papers. Thanks for sharing.

Henderson Elizabeth Dr joy is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 4 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr joy whom i met online after my friend Becky Ross told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr joy a try and i contacted him on his email and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a joke but i took courage and believed as Dr joy has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, begging for forgiveness. I forgive him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we will have our baby. Dr joy is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact Dr joy on his email on because he will always help you to solve all problems. Once again thank you Dr joy. Thank you, thank you. you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2347088404185.
