Center Step Card CASE

100_4035      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 100_4042Designer 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.
