This is one of the projects that we completed at my monthly Stamp Club. It looks intimidating but it really is quite simple. You can find easy-to-follow directions at SplitCoast at this link, Center Step Card. I actually cased this card right out of our monthly demonstrator’s magazine, Stampin’ Success (November 2011 issue). Created by the fabulous Becky Roberts (Inking Idaho), I just had to give it a try for myself. I changed up the DSP and the stamp sets as I don’t have exactly what Becky used. I used the lovely Frostwood Lodge DSP and the Snow Swirled stamp set for the tree. The Jewel Basic – Pearls were colored using various permanent markers. The oval frame from the Designer Frames Textured Impressions folders set is the perfect backdrop for the tree. The wide oval punch fits right inside the frame :) Gotta love coordination!! Of course, I had to make the inside of this gorgeous card as lovely as the outside! :)
Thanks for stopping in today. If you’ve never tried a center step card, I highly recommend you do so. The end result is stunning! I hope you’ve been inspired.
