Today for our first challenge, we were to make a Center Step Card. First assignment, and I have already had to do a Google Image Search to see what a center step card looked like. Turns out there a ton of examples and even several tutorials with step by step instructions. Here is the link to the tutorial I used to make my cards. I love baby cards. Granted, I don't know a single person who is having a baby and my son and daughter-in-law have not been too cooperative in that area just yet, but I am hoping to be a grandmother one day soon. I made a couple of center step baby cards using the most adorable Serendipity baby-themed stamps. What do you think? They are cute stamps, aren't they?
Just to be sure I have all my bases covered, I made both a boy and a girl version.
I rarely make a baby card without using gingham and these cards are no exception. The bib is paper pieced and the little duck is popped up with dimensionals. It's hard to see in the photo, but the flower on the baby cup has some sparkly stickles on it. Way back in the olden days...even before I had my children, hospitals used to put a cute little beaded id bracelet on every baby. I added some similar beads tied with twine to look like an old fashioned id bracelet spelling out the word "Sweet".
Here's a pic of what a center step card looks like from the side:
