Father's Day Double Side Step Card

It took me a while to figure this card fold out, but the tutorial by Dana and Sabrina was very helpful.  I decided to make this double side step card into a Father's Day card, and use one of the stamp sets "Walk in the Wild" that is retiring.

The basic cardstock is Soft Suede which I cut and scored as directed in the tutorial.
The images were stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock, matted with Basic Black.  The edges of all Very Vanilla cardstock were sponged with Soft Suede ink.

On the left panel, the image of the goose from "Wetlands" was stamped with Memento ink, and then masked the goose to stamp the sea grass in Old Olive behind it.  At the bottom I stamped the multi circle edge stamp in soft Suede.  I coloured the goose with blendabilities.
At the upper left corner, the sun, from "Kinda Eclectic" was stamped with Hello Honey.
Then with a sponge, I lightly sponged the sky with Marina Mist ink.

The first think I did on the right panel to use a stamp from "Work of Art" in Soft Suede ink in two places.  Above that another stamp from the same stamp set was stamped in Marina Mist ink.  Then the sandpipers from "Wetlands" was stamped in Early Espresso ink.  I also stamped the same edge stamp on the bottom of this panel.
Using a sponge, the sky was first coloured with Marina Mist ink, and then Blushing Bride.

The Moose, from "Walk in the Wild" was stamped with Memento ink on Very Vanilla on the middle panel.  The leaf from "Kinda Eclectic" was stamped using Pear Pizzaz twice on the upper left, after which the sky was lightly sponged with Marina Mist.  The image and grass were coloured with blendabilities.
A butterfly from "Kinda Eclectic" was stamped in Marina Mist ink and punched with the Itty Butterfly punch, attached to the panel with a glue dot and rhinestones adhered to its middle.  I drew two antennae using a fine black pen.

Both sentiments are  from "Best Dad Ever".

The embellishment is a clay button made using SU clay and the button clay mold.  I coloured it with a Soft Suede marker and adhered a bow made with Early Espresso baker's twine.
