Faux Centre Step Card - Couture Creations

Hi Everyone, Anet here today and welcome to my inspiration post. 

I made a Faux Centre Step Card with the Lavender Love Collection from Couture Creations. I coloured the Vintage Lavender Image with the Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Markers.

I found the inspiration from Cindy's Blog. I did not follow her measurements and changed the size of the centre step.

Step by Step Instructions:

I first trimmed Royal Midnight Cardstock to 5" x 9", score it at 1 1/4", 2 1/2" and 5 3/4" and fold it to create a card base.

I then cut Lavender Love Patterned Paper 1 to 1" x 4 3/4" and Lavender Love Patterned Paper 4 to 3" x 4 3/4". I adhered it onto the card front using Tacky Glue.

I cut Royal Midnight Cardstock to 3 3/4" x 8 1/2", score it at 5 1/2" and fold it to create the centre step. I adhered it onto the card front using Double Sided Tape.

I then cut Smooth White Cardstock to 3" x 4 3/4", stamped a Happy Birthday Sentiment, heat emboss it and adhered it onto the inside. I added Lavender Love Rustic Wreath Die-Cuts.

I cut Blending Card to 3 1/2" x 5 1/4", stamped the Vintage Lavender Stamp onto the card using the Colour Outline Ink Pad Soft Black and coloured it with the Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Markers.

Twin Tip Alcohol Ink Markers Combinations:

Lavender: 271, 2715, 268, 618
Leaves: 7493, 377, 371
Tin Bucket: 5305, 656, 174, 462, 7502, 7507, 174, 462, 489, 0

and adhered it onto the card front using 3D foam dots.

To finish I die-cut Brown Mirror Board with the Lavender Love Garden Frame Dies and adhered it onto the card front using 3D foam dots.
