Center-step Thank You Card

Hello everyone!! I'm back with a center-step Thank You card. I made this card for friends of ours, a wonderful couple who helped us so much in getting settled here.

I wanted to try a center-step card for a long time and finally geared up the courage to try one :)


The side steps are pretty clean with just a few embossed lines, which I did with my scoring board.

They liked my first lattice window card (here). So I thought of adding a lattice for them, but instead of cutting out a window, I added it on the card. I added a few handmade flowers with punched out leaves and flourishes. The sentiment was taken the internet.


I added a butterfly. Couldn't stop myself from doing that. ;)


I added a small fence and a creeper with flowers on it.


Here's a view of the center step with the fence below.

A view from the sides.

  4. Berina I love the center step card you made-- do you know I was thinking of making one today only as I have never made a center step before. I love the fence and the lattice and the flowers are gorgeous . I think your card would look even more stunning in a brighter background as the lighting is less in some of the photos
