Center Step Poppies

center-step-poppies

Hello everyone! Today I have a Center Step Card Layout that I made using this month's Our Daily Bread designs release, Mother's Day, as well as Customer Favorites Scripture Series One. The base is Pear Pizzazz and the dp is K&Co (a gift from a dear friend- thanks again sweet friend!). I used my Grand Calibur to cut my Spellbinders Beaded Oval and Classic Oval Small. I used Memento Ink to stamp my poppies, then colored them and used the ODBD custom die cut to cut them out real quick! The pearls are Recollections, and I finished off the centers of the poppies with Black Ultra Fine Flower Soft. The basic pattern I used for this center step card is found here.

Hi Grace,

Oh, I love this! Is that K & Company's Spring Blossom paper? I love it...beautiful color and wonderful poppies! I like how you used the black flower soft in the centers...that was a great idea. The shape of the card and that beautiful bow are so pretty and elegant... and that Scripture is so meaningful to me. It is such a great promise in His Word. Grace, you make the most beautiful cards! Have a blessed Easter!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
