Fabulous Florets Center Step Card

I've been making a LOT of these Center Step cards lately!  They are really quick and easy, but pack a lot of WOW into a card!  Of course, Fabulous Florets fits the center panel perfectly!  My class in Canton did this one last month!



The base of the card is Pumpkin Pie.  I layered on the green print from the retired Greenhouse Gala on the sides and bottom, being careful to match up the prints with the direction the card will be going!  I stamped the stem from Stampin' Up!'s Fabulous Florets in Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink on Whisper White and cut and added the flowers in Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie.  Do they look familiar?  I had some left over from the Wedding Shower Invitations I had done!  The Whisper White is layered on Pear Pizzazz cardstock and placed in the center panel. 


I wrapped the Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon around the bottom and tied a knot.  I stamped the word "Thanks" from Thank You Kindly in Melon Mambo on Whisper White and punched with the Large Oval Punch and layered on the Scallop Oval punch of Pumpkin Pie!  (And…really that ribbon is supposed to be behind the greeting…must have slipped out when I was photographing it!)


Remember, my Ribbon Shares and Designer Paper Shares are going on NOW!  Click here for more information!  I have one more spot in the Designer Paper Share before I order again…and a couple Ribbon Shares only need one more person, too!  When full, I'll place the order on Monday and will have it by the time I get back from Convention!  Then get it cut and sent to you ASAP!


Sharing creativity one stamped image at a time!

Fabulous card – love the colors!  And love the center step fold – makes a really more dramatic setting for the flowers.

I love this!  The colors are gorgeous!!!  I don't know how you get your ribbon to look so nice, mine always ties crooked.
