I wanted to complete a Center Step fold technique card this month. I began with a card stock choice of Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder. I, then, made my cuts and scores and suddenly thought maybe one of the card challenges this week incorporates some of what I was including in the card. I began to browse through the sites of the card challenges I like to submit and low and behold there are my colors with the addition of Night of Navy on the Pals Paper Arts weekly challenge! So, now, I feel like I’m killing two birds with one stone!!! Yippee!!
I think the Night of Navy really adds a lot of dimension as a mat choice. As you can see in the card pictures below, there is a border on the vertical mat at the bottom of the card. This was a case of being given an opportunity to embellish. Yes, I made a boo boo. I scored ALL the way across when I should have scored only to the cut line. I’m really bad at watching and reading directions. LOL
I thought a bright birthday theme with a yummy cupcake would be just right for this card; and, as I was putting the card together, I realized I didn’t have to keep my banners within the confines of the white mat. How liberating! I really love this card.
I took a picture of the side view so the cuts and folds would be showcased as well.
Supplies: not pictured (Watermelon Wonder and Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Markers, scallop border punch)
