Here is yet another center stepper card I made for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day. I am having way too much fun with this style of card. This time, I downsized the card a bit and made it a normal A2 sized card (4-1/4" x 5-1/2").
This is the paper I used. It is again a 6x6 pad from My Mind's Eye. I simply cut the paper pieces to size, placed them in a pleasing manner (to me, at least) and used a Sizzix rosette die by Tim Holtz to make the rosette flower. I also used a Sizzix vintage lace die by Tim Holtz to cut the lace shown along the top of the card. I computer generated the sentiment, punched out with an EK Success decorative sign punch, and the butterfly was punched out twice using a Martha Stewart punch. I layered the butterflies, one atop the other for dimension, and added a bit of pink pigment ink to the butterfly's wings for added interest. Then I knotted a tiny piece of twine in the center and attach it to the butterfly as antennae.
Once again, a side view of the card to show it's dimension. I think I like these cards so much because it allows the recipient a way to display it. It has it's own built-in easel.
As always, thanks so much for stopping by.
