3 Step Card!

  I have used the 3 Step Card to make my Mom's Mother's Day card.  I used Tim Holtz's die to make the rosette and Spellbinder's die for the back of the rosette.  The paper is from My Mind's Eye.  I really love their paper!  It's a little more expensive but it really is FABULOUS paper!  Wow, I put alot of metal on this card!  I have had it kicking around and decided it was time to use it.  The leaves are from Marianne Design- another company that I have fallen in love with! You can find another sample of the 3 Step Card at Marianne's blog located here-
The link for the instructions are on her blog but you can find it here as well-
I did change the dimensions on my card.  Marianne's card is beautiful but it is really a large card!  My card is a 6" square card when folded.  That worked best for me.  If you want to make my card you would use a piece of card stock 6" x 10".   Put your card stock in your cutter with the short side on top.  You will be cutting 2 inches in from the side on both sides.  Print out the picture of STEP ONE from the instructions and make the following adjustments-
SCORE-
A-B = 2 inches
C-D = 4 inches
E-F= 4 inches
G-H = 2 inches
CUT-
B-E = 4 inches
D-G= 4 inches
Here are a few more pictures of my card.   Don't hestitate to leave a comment if  you have any questions!
