H2H - Tool Time

The theme this week at Heart 2 Heart is "Tool Time" - we are encouraging you to use either Thin Cuts or Embossing Folders on your project (or both). As an aside, when I hear "Tool Time", I think of Tim, the Tool-Man Taylor from Home Improvement... I loved that show! 

I chose to create a Centre Step Card for my project. It is so very easy to do with just a few simple cut and score lines. The instructions can be found at Splitcoast Stampers in the Tutorials section.

For the side sections, I just used Pixie and Sea Glass ink and blended the sections together as best as I could. I like the way they turned out. I used an embossing folder and two sets of Thin Cuts on my card. The flowers are from a retired Stamp of the Month stamp set and I used the full cluster plus sections of it cut out for smaller groups.

The post below shows a close up of the flowers - the shimmer doesn't show up in the main photo...

Alyson, this is all the sparklies and so many thin cuts clustered it all. Is this considered an easel card? I tried making one this weekend and modifying a cricut image to accomodate and ran out of patience.
