Center Step Card

Lots of cut out cute lil feathery friends ready to be 'planted' solidly on a card :o)

Made these Center Step Cards for Barb's Fancy Folds swap and I must admit that I absolutly LOVE this much in fact that I made several cards after these, using the same fun idea :o) For these cards I used a sweet Whipper Snapper image called 'Farmer & Adelle' WS # MT 017. I find this particular stamp to be quite versatile as you can see (below) on a second card made for a friend's birthday where I cut out 'Farmer' completely and left 'Adelle' holding some balloons :o)

.....and here is chickee 'Adelle'...all by herself....LOL...she still looks quite ravishing though and so pretty in blue and razzleberry colors :o) For this card I added some heart nesties to its sides,the balloons to give it more of a 3-D look and some strings too...I also lacquered it by using Crystal effect on the image (as I did on the anniversary card too) and accessorized it with many lil bows and blings for a customized feminine look to it :o) I so liked the designer paper used is from a Christmas glitter collection but it does'nt look christmasy at all, hence I chose it.

This last one I made it for my student's Parents recent 20th Wedding Anniversary. I added a lil glittery heart to the top and some blings throughout the sides of the card and by the front sentiment too. The word 'Cherish' was made glittery is just too bad that this pict. it doesn't show it much here...but irl it is truly quite nice :o) Inside, the sentiment aptly says: "Forever and Always"......... I am so glad that Brenda and Steve liked it! :o) Thank you all for stopping by and visit!! Hope you like this fold too and that you may will to try it sometimes :o)
