Here's to You Blog Hop

Welcome to the Here's to You Blog Hop featuring the stamp set For the Love of Crafting. This month there are approximately 15 CTMH Consultants sharing projects created with the Here's To You products. We try to keep our blog hop easy: just keep clicking on the link to the next blog (typically near the bottom of the post) to visit the next post. Our blog hop is circular so visiting the next blog will take you back to where you started.

You should have arrived here from ***Evergreen Memories by Michele Rowley***. If you get lost along the way, Melinda Everitt keeps a list of participants on her blog at If You Bling It.

I was watching a craft channel from the UK and saw Debbi Moore demonstrate this different way to create a step card. I worked up a pattern in Design Space and this is what I came up with (the arrows indicate the center point on each side):

And here is the design translated to paper, embossing folders and stamps:

This version feels stronger than the center step cards we typically see because thinner sides are not supporting the layers and die cuts placed on the center. I think it is also easier to decorate. Yes, you are using more cardstock, but there is a lot less cutting of what can be little pieces. There is the added bonus that you can move the tent part to any location on the card so it can be a center step, left-side step or right-side step card AND this card folds flat and is neater looking (in my opinion) on this inside. I know some people do not like to create their own envelopes, so I sized this card to fit the envelopes that come in the White Cards & Envelopes Value Pack (X254).

Before you head to ***Kirsten Desorcy's Blog***, the supplies I used to create my project are listed below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
If you are not already working with a CTMH Independent Consultant, you may purchase all of the supplies I used at my Consultant website.

I love to hear what folks think about the items I create. If you have a little time, please leave a comment letting me know what you think of this card. I hope you are enjoying the projects created with Here's to You. Thank you for hopping with us!

So you do not have to scroll back up, the next stop on the hop is ***Kirsten Desorcy's Blog***.
