Center Step Card Blog Hop
Today we are going to showcase for you Center Step Cards! They are so much fun to make - I think that by the time you finish hopping you will definitely want to make your own :)
You should have come here from Marianne's blog at Paper or Fabric Crafter.
By the way, we ARE offering blog candy! Ashley, our hostess, is giving away a $20 gift card to Michael's! Yup -- you heard me -- $20!!!! To be eligible to win, you will need to stop at each blog and leave a comment. That's it -- don't forget to leave a comment :)
Here's my card:
I used a paper pack called Florentine from Close to My Heart for the card base. I love the coordinating colors in this paper pack: Goldrush, Olive, Cocoa - great fall colors.
The scarecrow came from our September Stamp of the Month: Fall Favorites. I cut the background for the scarecrow using our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge - page 65, E5, < Rctngle8 > cut at 2 1/2" x 4 1/4" using the Fit to Length key. I actually stamped the scarecrow image 2 times -- once on the mat and then again on another piece of cardstock. I colored in the images using a number of markers: Olive, Bamboo, Cocoa, Twilight, Garden Green, Goldrush, and Creme Brulee. I then cut the second scarecrow out and popped him up using 3D Foam Tape to give him some dimension. (I only cut the scarecrow itself from the second one.)
I cut the leaves using our Art Philosophy cartridge as well -- they can be found on page 56, D6, Shift, < Leaf4 > cut at 3/4" from Cocoa and Olive cardstock.
The sentiment was stamped with Cocoa ink and came from the Abundance stamp set.
I hope you enjoyed my Center Step card. You can find a tutorial at Splitcoaststampers.com by clicking here.
