#172 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with F for Faux Stepper Card

The Butterflies are back with another card shape for you. 
Whilst I do have lots of new card shapes to try I don't have one to use for each letter of the Alphabet so this time round we are going Random and some letters will be used more than once and in any order!

 The next letter out of the Tea cup is 
the letter
Come on in.
Lets Spin the Butterfly Wheel.

Each challenge will be a letter of the Alphabet with a new  choice of 4 Colours , 1 Theme and a specified Card shape all beginning with the chosen letter.

As before I will be showing a tutorial for each of the card shapes.
 A link to the tutorial page is shown above under the banner heading. Just click on the Card Shapes tab and you will be taken to a drop down list of all the past and present card tutorials.

 You must of course use a butterfly on your entry but there are now two categories for you to choose from.

1.    Make any  card using at least 2 of the colours on the wheel +butterfly.  

     2.    Make a card using the Card Shape +any 2 of the colours + the theme +butterfly.  

There will be a prize for each category. 

 Please state in your post which part of the wheel you are using to play with.

There will be a special prize draw for using all elements on the wheel.

So lets get started.

The wheel is


Faux Stepper Card.

No cutting apart from your base card.
Just folding.

These are the four colours to choose from.

So glad to see you again... and you really raised the bar with your sample cards this time. And your prizes are always amazing. I'll try to get at least one entry this time... if my new hip would just behave!

Although I've been playing regularly here for a long time, my entry today (#9) is the first time I've done all the different options o one card. I love the faux stepper card and chose to do Version 2 following your instructions. Thanks for the very clear, step-by-step tutorial ! :-D

Well, dear Mrs A, I’ve finally managed to link up with your challenge again, so nice to be back, do see it in my inbox yet nit now as blogger stopped sending on Aug 1st I’ve changed to follow it as like emails not blogloving or such sites, would be great if you added it to your blog but perhaps you don’t want the hassle on the side bar.
Thanks for running your challenge, you are a blessing.
Loved making my cards this time around lots of butterflies and new techniques are really fun.
Thanks for Sharing, God bless and keep you safe, and all those you love, hugs Shaz in Oz.x

Woot, woot! I did it! I actually make a Faux Stepper Card! I didn't think I could do it! I did struggle somewhat and worked on it over a couple days, but I persevered and was able to make one! I hope you like it! Although I find card shapes and fancy folds difficult and a bit overwhelming, I end up feeling quite satisfied with myself when I finish, so thank you for the inspiration! Sending hugs from Canada!
