Tea Party Step Card

I decided to make another Step Card.  I love the depth these cards give to the greeting and/or occasion.
And from another angle....

How I did it - 
1.  I started by adhering my card base to the template I made:
2.  Then I turned it over and used a bone scorer on the (horizontal) fold lines:
3.  I used a craft knife on the two (vertical) cut lines:
 4.  I removed it from the template, and folded along the fold lines:
5.  I then made inserts for the 3 panels - .5cm smaller than the area so there was a .25cm border
6.  Inked all pieces, all the way around - including the card:
7.  I attached them to the front of the card and painted and decorated my chippy:
 8.  I inked the outer edges of the embellishments, worked out the placement, and adhered them:
 9.  And Wallah!!! all finished!
