A Simple & Quick Step Card

 One more quick card this evening. A "Center-Step Card", otherwise known as a "Double-Side Step Card", this one has a larger area in the center and two smaller side pieces that are also lower because of the "step". Scoring these correctly is always a challenge for me!

Dies: Spellbinders "Fleur de Lis Squares"
Sentiment: Bible verse artwork from Word Art Wednesday
Adhesive border: K&Company "Spring Blossoms"
Rhinestones: KaiserCraft "Ice Blue"
Card stock: print- Little Yellow Bicycle "Vintage Summer", solids- from my stash

Challenges - August/September Monthly Challenge: Double-Side Step Card

An Autumn Wedding Card

Well, the past 6 weeks got even busier than I my break from blogging and card-making was a bit longer too! I'm back now, but will not be doing as much as I have in the past...too many commitments.
Today I actually spent a few hours in my new craft area (I'll explain some other day!) and produced a pretty little wedding card for an October wedding.

 Wedding cards are so fun to make 'cause I get to go a little crazy with extra "frills"! I used some of my favorite dies for this one...and the butterfly is a favorite stamp too! It is colored with colored pencils.

The inside is much plainer but simply "needed" to match the front. The vellum in the "window" with the pearly embossed stamp has been floating around my desk for almost a year now and I finally figured out what to do with it. I don't very often use kraft card stock for a wedding card...but this seems to work.
