Snow Much Fun Center Step Card

I made over 60 of these Snow Much Fun Center Step Cards for the SUDSOL swap and general swapping at Convention!  Yes…time consuming, but good TV work!  I used Marina Mist and Calypso Coral on those…this one was my prototype, but I was low on Pool Party cardstock so switched out the colors for Convention!



The base is Pool Party cardstock.  I made my own "designer paper", by stamping the two smaller stamps from Stampin' Up!'s Serene Snowflakes in Blushing Bride and Pool Party randomly over Whisper White.  They were cut to fit the front panels.  I stamped the snowman from Snow Much Fun in Black Stazon on Whisper White and used my Blushing Bride, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie and Basic Gray markers to color him.  I layered the white on Blushing Bride and added to the front of the Center Step base.  I stamped the greeting with Black Stazon on Blushing Bride and punched with the Modern Label Punch.  Then I added a Pool Party snowflake from Northern Frost Decorative Strip Die with a Silver Mini Brad in the center.


Here is a template…not to scale, but shows the dimensions (sorry…if you downloaded this before I did the revision, you'll need to print it again.  I'd forgotten one of the score lines!)




The long, lanky snowman was just PERFECT for this type of card!  Love it and hope you do, too!

Greetings!!! I need to make a 80th Birthday card for my Mom next weekend. I have 8 siblings & tons of nieces & nephews. I like the Center Step Card. I'm rather new at this and don't have a lot of creativity. Would it be possible for you to send me the instructions that you used??? Thanks, ~Lee Uhrig in Glen Allen, VA
