...and there's more!

With this card I wanted to layer up the Martha Stewart punches....for full impact LOL!
I again really like the way this card works blending tones and textures together from the same range,
I keep saying it....simple yet effective!!
They'd make great notelets as a gift in a box and would be quick to make in a bundle.
Might have to keep this in mind for some up coming birthdays!!

Anyway on to the important bit, this is what I used:
Papers from American textured craft brown and Tim Holtz ideaology vintage shabby.
Martha Stewart punches:
Deep edge Cherry blossom trim, deep edge punch Garden gate, Punch around the page Rings and Edger Dollie lace.
Spellbinder nestabilities Lacey circles.
Tim Holtz Ideaology Ornate plates and brads.
Hero arts stamps Anytime messages.
I have finished the edges using Ranger distress ink Walnut stain.


My version of a step card!
Now the girls over on the Sugar Nellie Facebook page set a challenge last week to do a step card....the reason why I didn't enter, well I did this one instead.
On a 6 x 12" I have measured in 1 1/2" on the right then scored at 1, 2 and 7" on that strip and 6" on the main card.  To create the step you cut between the 1 and the 7" and then fold accordingly.
I was thinking a Valentine card....none heartie!!  :)
Get the bucket ready.....
"You hold the key to my heart!"
Well, I did warn you. 
It's about as mushy as I get.

What I have used:
Paper American craft textured coffee, brown and white card stock.
Hero art stamp Antique keys and Treasure the moments.
Martha Stewart edger punch String lace.
Spellbinders nestabilities labels 14.
Tim Holtz Idealology 7 keys & Adage tickets.
Ink StazOn brown, Ranger distress inks, Vintage photo and Walnut.
