Coffee Crazy Day #3

This Center Step Card was fun, easy & so quick to make! It’s what I would call a “scrapbooker’s card” which to me, is perfect for International Scrapbook Day! I did stamp one little stamp on the front but other than that, someone “allergic” to stamping could totally create this card!

The dies make it super simple to choose your papers for the layers. Just place the die over the area of the paper that you want to use, hold in place with a little stencil tape, & cut. (You might need to trim away the excess paper around the die before sending it through your machine.)

Instead of trying to color a stamped image, I chose to use a focal part of the paper, fussy-cut it out & then I placed it onto dark brown cards stock (the same as the card base) and trimmed again, trying my best to leave about 1/16th of an inch. I am a bit out of practice, having been spoiled for so long by dies! HAHA!

Keep in mind, the top part of the inside is upside down! Remember to rotate the dies so that your pattern faces the right way when you put it in the card! LOL (I actually forgot myself this time). To make this card quickly (because I needed to make a lot of projects for this hop), I just used the largest die from each section in Layers #1. I think it turned out GREAT myself & I love that you can achieve different looks with the 3 sizes of die layers, yet you don’t have to use or layer with every single die in the set on every single card you make.

I also fussy-cut a little design from the paper to add to the lower right of the inside of the card. I’m not sure if you can see it in the photos (I’m so not good at pictures these days), but I added a small amount of SuperTack™ to places I wanted to add glitter (the bow on the cup, the dark lines in the cupcake, the centers of the flowers), and let it dry. SuperTack™ dries clear, raised and STICKY! Then, I just stuck my finger in the jar of glitter & rubbed it over the stickyness until it was all covered with glitter. So much easier to apply glitter when you don’t have to pour it out in a big puddle on everything, then try to get it all back into the jar!
