Steppin' up with the step cards
So, this step card has been awaiting some embellishment for weeks. The base and background, a flocked series of blocks cut from a Die Cuts With a View stack, turned out so beautifully that it was with distress that I considered what to add.
Finally, about two hours ago I realized: Single color, simple embellishments would be perfect.
The gold, heat-embossed sentiment and bicycle are from a Stampin' Up set called Chemin faisant (available here from Snowmanlover).
Finally, if you're wondering how I managed to get that DCWV flocked paper cut so perfectly so that the damask-style design is maintained: Thank you Design Studio. I swear, one of these days I'll post a .cut file.
Until then, make sure you drop by Snowmanlover's Stampin' Up site, linked three graphs ago, and her blog linked here: You definitely need a few of the Stampin' Up sets, especially the French sets and the wheel stamps.
