A Center Step Card

Hi Everyone,

I finally tried my hand at making a center step card.  I found instructions at SplitCoastStampers, and I adjusted some of the cuts so that the card would be a finished size of an A2 card, instead of a 5.5 x 5.5 card.  I will admit that filling in those small side and bottom sections was challenging, but I do like the way it turned out.  What do you think?

I took pictures outside for better lighting, but it seems that doesn't always guarantee a perfect photo either.  In this case, the chocolate on my cupcake appears much darker than it really was, which is why I also took some photos inside too, shown a little further down.

Ingredients for this card:
White cardstock cut and folded following this tutorial
Brown cardstock scrap
Patterned paper from DCWV Sweet Stack
Pink mat paper and confetti top of cupcake from MS Modern Festive
Two cupcake brads
My Creative Time "More of My Favorite Sayings" clear stamps
Red glossy cardstock punched with Fiskars circle punch
Cupcake from Hello Kitty cartridge
Inside sentiment is TPC Studio Happy Birthday stamps

These photos taken inside.
