Sisters in Stamping blog we are featuring Fall-themed projects for Fabulous Friday. I decided to try out a new fun fold for my card since this is my team's swap theme this month - maybe I can cross two items off my to-do list, right?! This is a center-step card, but instead of it having a portrait-style orientation it is landscape - pretty nifty!
The focal point of my card is the large leaf cut from Comfort Cafe DSP using the new Autumn Accents bigz die from the Holiday catalog. I needed it to pop off the very vanilla card stock so I used a second leaf cut from cajun craze card stock slightly offset behind it. To tell you the truth, this card originally had the cajun craze leaf (textured with the new woodgrain impressions folder) as the focal point, but after consulting with my sister Cindy we agreed that it was too much cajun craze. Voila - it became a shadow effect for my DSP leaf!!
I also added a little acorn embellishment... this was cut from cajun craze card stock using the same Big Shot die and texture was added with the square lattice impressions folder (so I still got my little die cut of textured cajun craze on the card!).
I tied some linen thread around the card and added a tag stamped with a sentiment from Tiny Tags to finish the card. I came across the idea for this type of center step card from a blog called H2 Designs - the dimensions for it can be found HERE.
