A Delightful Birdie

Hi Everyone
Wow!!! It's the last week of August, can you believe it. I was reading the Sunday paper today and noticed that one of the craft stores in the area has their Christmas trees on sale already. Maybe I should get my house decorated ............NOT........ yet!!! Well, we need to get thru Halloween first.

Recently, I picked up some die cut shapes. These are from Creative Imaginations and I bought " Love Blooms Shapes". This set came with birds, some flowers and keys and a few other shapes. I decided to use a center step card to show off some of these really nice images.

I also added a few stamped feathers since I used the bird as my focal point.The feathers tied in very nicely.

I really like the look of the different step cards and the shutter cards as well. But, if you are like a lot of ladies I know, they are not so inclined to make a center step card, too hard to measure and cutting with a craft knife, forget it!!! In order to assist you all who shutter at making those kinds of cards, let me come to your rescue. I have added blank center step cards to my Etsy store, Creative Essences. Tomorrow I will add a few more blank step cards designs and also a blank Tri-Shutter Card design to the store. The different card styles will all be sold in packs of 5 and can be ordered in cream or white card stock. 
For your convenience, I have added a link on my right sidebar to take you directly to the store. 

This cute birdie card was fun to put together and hope you enjoy it as well.

Thanks for stopping in today, see you soon!!

A totally fun step card Barbara! I don't make them enough, but always enjoy the results when I do. Love the images you've used on your card, and the feathers are lovely along with your flower embellishments.

The feathers were a PERFECT added touch, Barb. Love the simplicity of this card.

How sweet, Barbara! The layers on your step card are so pretty, and provide a great "natural" yet vintage feel! No wonder you had to have them! LOL The ivory on ivory layers create a great look! hugs, de
