Merry Kissmas

Welcome back everyone!!

Yesterday I showed a tri-shutter card design and today I have two more cards that I presented in my November Card Shop Class. Both of the cards below are center step cards. I call one design a Tall Center Step Card and the other one a Wide Center Step Card

Card #1 - Tall Center Step Card

Card #2 -  Wide Center Step Card

The great thing about the size of both of these cards is they fit in an A-2 size envelope.  Again all the stamps I used on both of these cards come from stamp set  Kissmas & Mistletoe  from Unity, (IPK-101). And the great thing is this set is still available. This set is perfect to use for winter theme cards, too.

Are you one of many people who hate to use an exacto knife. Tri shutter cards and step cards are cards that need to be cut with an exacto knife and they can be hard to cut. Great news!! I have blank cards, already pre cut and available in my Etsy store, CreativeEssences. I have them available in either white or cream card stock  and come packaged 5 blank cards to a pack. Let me eliminate your cutting woes, so you can concentrate on the decorating part of your card making.. Also available,  is a blank side step card, and it too is available in cream or white card stock. Visit CreativeEssences for all the details.

My next Card Shop class will be in January (I am on vacation this month) and the theme is man cards. After the January classes are finished I will share those designs with you.

Have a great rest of the week and hope you are finishing up on your Christmas chores. See you soon.

I am entering my cards in the following fabulous challenges

Beautiful cards. I have yet to try step cards. They look hard to make, but worth the effort. Thanks for sharing with us at FSC.
