SIDESTEP CARDS


I made five cards for a birthday party.  I had the base of the cards made and most of the cricut embellishments cut.  I was planning on assembling the cards between my sons soccer games.  Unfortunately he was kicked in the shin and we spent most of the afternoon in the ER. Today the doctor called and wanted to re xray, the radiologist saw something on his ankle.  We are pretty sure he has a fractured ankle and go to see an orthopedic tomorrow.  Since I ran out of time one of the cards is made out of stickers.  Here are the sidestep cards. I made another one with snowboards and mountains but forgot to take a picture of it.  Tomorrow I will post an easel snowboarding card.

Decorate the sides and folds.
