Topic: Fantastic Folds
Challenge: Create a 'center step' card.
I have made these cards before and wanted this one to be something different. I started with rather plain cardstock with a rustic print, not too much detail. Then I went to town stamping elements for a scene I wanted to create. All the parts of the scene are stamped on the dot textured cardstock, colored and cut out for mounting.
For the front panel I stamped a rose-covered picket fence and grass on white and an evergreen tree on green.
For the center panel I stamped a cottage on blue and added some more details to the right and left with a marker to make the scene the full width of the area of mounting. It also got some grass stamped at the base. When I mounted it, I let it extend above the fold of the card.
For the back panel I stamped the trees on green and colored them with more green I trimmed out the top along the tree line and added a blue panel behind it, rounded the corners, and drew in some birds with a marker.
Back on the front of the card I finished off with a text sticker on the left and more of the mix-a-phrase stickers on the right. These words were tied together with lines of marker.
