Doily Center Step Cards

We found a circle punch at Michael's that I could not resist. I found a circle cutter at a garage sale -- and we were set! I love the circle punch's delicate doily look. The new Stampin' Up delicate doily set was used for the center. River rock card stock and ink were used. The trim is from the Tasteful Trim die. What a lovely card!

Aaron created this design, which is a CASE of Sue's. Stampin' Up's Vintage Vogue stamp set created the delicate center panel. She stamped the image on the paper in the dark purple. Then she stamped the image on another piece of paper using the roll technique. She first inked the stamp with the light purple. Then she rolled the edges in the dark purple. The punched pieces on the sides are from the new doily punch. Beautiful!

Christmas Gift Card Holder

There is a single layer of card stock layered with the snowflake designer paper. Attached to that is the actual card holder. The holder opens up to show the gift card. When folded together, the snowflake brad holds it together. The snowflakes were punched and randomly placed.

More Center Stair Step Cards

I am still fascinated with the design of the center stair step cards. The first card uses dies for the scalloped circles, scallop edge punch, butterfly embosslits, and the Stampin' Up Simply Soft.

The second card uses Martha Stewart's lattice edge punch Stampin' Up's swirl stamp.
