It's Tuesday again, and that brings us to another Timeless Tuesday with the Friends of Flourishes blog team! Cindy Haffner is our hostess this week, and she's challenging us to create Center Step Cards. You may think these are really hard to do, and I did too the first time I tried to make one, but they're super easy and fun to do! Check out Frances Byrne's great tutorial on Splitcoaststampers HERE. I decided to scale my card down and make it so it'd fit in an A2 envelope. My card base measures 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". In Step 1 of the SCS tutorial, my cuts were made from 1" to 5 1/4" (instead of 6 1/2"). In Step 2, I still scored at 1" and 2" at the bottom, but scored the top folds at 5 1/4" instead of 6 1/2". And in Step 4, I scored at 4 1/4" (instead of 5 1/2"). I hope that makes sense! If not, just email me!
I used the beautiful Pears stamp set for my card, coloring on Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock with Copics from the New Leaves, Sunflower, Evergreen and Flesh Tones 2 collections. My sentiment is from the Tag Lines stamp set, and this designer paper is from the Picadilly 6x6 paper pad from Basic Grey. I cut out my pear image with the Labels 8 Nestabilities die. Below is a side view of my card, showing the "steps."
