3 Cards, 3 Levels

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?
