Center step #3

I had leftover cuts from here and decided to finally put them to good use.  As you know, I’ve been on a center step card kick this week.  In order to get the full benefit from this Make a Wish banner from Designs on Cloud 9, I wanted to have it hanging in the air, so when I made these center step cards, I scored and folded them “backwards.”

P1090931webUsing the measurements from Splitcoast Stampers, all I did was switch where I scored.  All the score lines that were supposed to be on the CENTER panel, I scored on the side panels instead; and all the score lines that were supposed to be on the SIDE panels, I scored on the center panel instead.  You can see another card that I did the same thing on  here.  I like the look!  This technique really gives some depth and interest to the card.

Well, hopefully I’m off the center steps for awhile, although I have to warn you, I have two more leftover center step bases sitting on my desk.  Maybe I’ll hide them from myself and get stuck on something new. . .

    Super cards! I need to venture out a bit more with my base designs. I love the way you mixed print and cut with “regular” cuts. Looks fabulous!
