CCEE1230 - Step Card

This is my last week as hostess for the CCEE Stampers, and I asked the team to make a Step Card --  either side-step or center-step -- a fun technique.  I chose a Center-Step card, using a brand-new stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company, called Above the Rest.

There are two giraffe images on this set, as well as several cute sentiments.  I just love the sweet face on this sitting giraffe.  Last year I bought a DCWV paper pack called Safari Chic, which has some great African prints in it.  Fortunately one of them was a giraffe pattern.  I added some gold twine and a little gold charm, and I was finished.

The CCEE Stampers would love for you to play along with us.  Come visit our Blog.  If you decide to make a card for this challenge and post it to another website, such as Splitcoaststampers, be sure to use the keyword CCEE1230 so we can all find it.

Stamps:  Mark's Finest Papers - Above the Rest
Paper:  MFP Deep Scarlet, Snow Storm Smooth; DCWV Safari Chic DP
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Copic markers, Gold twine, Charm

This is just the sweetest giraffe and great card with the perfect dp.
Thanks for the challenge this week, Lois. I had never made a step card and I think I'm ready (almost) to take on another one. They really are fun. Plus, I got a Christmas card made. :-)
