I love that when creating a project, you can start with something simple and then add more and more to it to take it to the next level. I have a great example to show you today using one of my favorite bundles from the Holiday Catalog. I will show you each card and explain how I stepped each one up.
For the beginner card, I stamped some snowflakes onto some Whisper White card stock in Soft Sky. I took a small piece of Smoky Slate and stamped the sentiment on it. To finish it off, I stamped, punched and layered some snowflakes and finished them off with an iced rhinestone in the center. In inside of the card I just stamped the sentiment in Smoky Slate. Here is a supply list.
For the stepped up, intermediate version, I added a few extra embellishments. First over top of the stamped Whisper White, I added the Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum. Under the snowflake I twirled up some silver Cording Trim. And then on the inside, I stamped the large snowflake in Soft Sky and then stamped the sentiment over it in Smoky Slate. You will notice I only added two things to the supply list.
Finally for the advanced version, I added some Silver Glimmer paper and did some heat embossing with the popped up snowflakes and both sentiments. This time I had to add a few extra tools to the supply list, but not too much of a change.
And here are all three card together. It doesn't take too much to step up your cards. Did you get a chance to see the other stepped up cards over at SSI?
