Open Centre Step Card.

Important  News.
I was asked by 
Crafting From The Heart 
to be their GDT for April.

Of course I said Yes!!
Here is my 1st card for  them using  an 
image from this weeks Sponsor
Oak Pond Creations.

Another new card shape  tried.
Slightly different to a normal centre step card
in that the centre  is recessed instead of to the front. 

I couldn't find a tutorial  for how I wanted to make it
so I just worked out my own folds
 using a sheet of scrap paper.
Design papers used are called Sugar and Spice
from Making Cards magazine. 
I used Spellbinders Tattered Blossoms
 to make the extra flowers
to match those in the digi  image.
Not quite the same but near enough .
Coloured using promarker , pearlised chalks
 and a gold gel pen.
Sentiment is a Britannia word die
 and digi was die cut using Spellbinders 
Marvellous Squares.

Thank you to the Crafting from the Heart Team 
for having me on board this week
and looking forward
 to being back with you next week.

  25. I'm so happy that you have been chosen as a GD. This is a great card and I'm so impressed that you made your own tutorial. I couldn't make anything without a pattern. I love how it is recessed. You have created a whole new way to do this.
