Happy Birthday To You - Centre Step Card - Video Tutorial


Today's Video shows you how I created these lovely Centre Step cards.

I used the Happy Birthday To You stamp set. This is one of our FREE Sale-a-Bration offerings this year. For each £45 you spend you get to choose a FREE item from the Sale-a-Bration brochure. You can find details about this promotion by clicking the Current Promotions Tab at the top of my Blog.


All the background papers used come from the Best Dressed 6" paper pack. This paper pack is fast becoming a favourite! ... the designs are beautiful.

The cards were coloured using the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. I used Daffodil Delight, Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive and Petal Pink for this one.


This is a side view of the card. If you are using 8 1/2" x 11" card, your finished version will be a little more upright and the base will be shorter.


This is the card I created in the Video. It's so pretty, I loved making it.

The front Petal Pink layer and the paper layer are each cut in one piece - I show you how to do that in the Video.

The colours used are Lovely Lipstick, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Petal Pink.


This is the card fully opened. I added a panel to the inside so you can write a message. Alternatively, you could add a panel to the back instead.

Here is the Video ...
