Holiday Step Card with Cheery Lynn Designs and Core'dinations

All week long the Cheery Lynn Design team is creating with Core'dinations paper, and over at the Core'dinations blog, they are using Cheery Lynn Designs dies.  What fun we are having!


Using an assortment of Core'dinations Whitewash Cardstock, I created a step card.  There are 3 steps, on the first and second I began with a snowbank created with an aquaWhitewash cardstock, which I embossed with my Cheery Lynn Designs Dotted Swiss XL embossing plate, then sanded so the aqua core of the paper shows through.  Again on the first step, I added a Cheery Lynn Designs Victorian Picket Fence, decorated with two Christmas Lights Swags and the bow from the new Ornamental Wreath and Bow die.  I added Viva Decor Glass Effect Gel to the Christmas lights to make them shiny.  The figures on the second step are Lil Christmas Lolita Willow and Lil Lad Christmas Luca from Tickled Pink Stamps.  You can see the embossed dots on the snow banks on this step.



For the 3rd step, I started with a piece of gray Whitewash Cardstock that I embossed with my Big Weaver Plate, sanding it to get the look of siding.  I then added a Screen Door die cut using a blue Whitewash, reversing the bottom panel drop outs and putting them back in.  Then I cut a square to fit the top part of the door.  I added an Ornamental Wreath and Bow adding a few berries with my Viva Decor Pearl pen.  A silver gem for a door knob was the final touch. 


Next I added some more snow banks using my Swiss Dots embossed aqua Whitewash cardstock on both sides of the door.  Then I added my Elegant Evergreen die, popping up the layers for dimension.  I added some red gems and a gold star as accents.   All of the sanding on the cardstock was done using the Core'dinations Sand It Gadget.  Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.

Be sure to visit the Core'dinations blog and come back each day through Saturday for more inspiration.
