Cherish Friendship

This is a center step card.  It took some tweaking, and I won't say how much card stock I went through before I figured out the dimensions, but the end result will fit in a standard A6 envelope!  The background of this card is the Tile technique.  To me, the tile gives an antique feel.
This is the inside of the card.  I used the same background stamp as I did in the tile technique and I stamped off before I stamped the background.
Stamps:  Cherish Friendship, Everything Eleanor, Itty bitty bits
Ink:  Crumb cake, Cajun craze, Summer starfruit, Midnight muse, Gumball green, Daffodil delight (and others I can't
Paper:  Comfort cafe DSP, Soft suede
Punches:  Itty bitty shapes punch pack, 3/16" corner
Accessories:  Rhinestone jewels, Soft suede 3/8" taffeta ribbon


  1. Hey Barb,

  4. Barb,
    Hi this is so pretty. I did a center step card last night for the first time and it took forever! I went through 5 different trials to get my card just like I wanted it. Some of that had to do with the embossing technique as well, but like you, I was finally able to get mine to fit in a regular envelope. However, I didn't think to put cardstock inside to write on, and I always do pretty insides on my cards. How Smart are you!?!
    Thanks for following me and of course I returned the favor. Can't wait to spend some time looking at all of your beautiful creations. :)

  5. This is so pretty. The tile technique really looks good. I am following your blog now.
