I recently purchased a fairly large pack of papers by Kanban. They are elegant - black, gold, cream, white, and I am enjoying finding ways to use them. I am also trying to discover ways to make step cards, using purchased pre-cut card bases. (Next, I need to learn how to upload pictures rather than scans!). For this card, I used a 4.25 x 5.5 piece. I cut the edge strip on either side, and used for the edge of this card. The remaining center section provides a background for the butterfly, and is the card that is raised when the step card is displayed. There were 2 left over 1x1 pieces, and they are on the part that folds under. I used letter dies for the special greeting at the bottom. The large butterfly is a part of the Kanban collection. For the inside - I used a coordinating piece and cut it to fit the inner part. I used shimmery cs for the computer generated sentiment. I distressed with Tim Holtz distress ink. I hope you will let me know what you think.
