When I started cardmaking I disliked the idea of using pre-printed papers, especially pricey designer ones, when I could stamp and emboss ... but gee, aren't they fun‽ I was quickly converted. I don't want to say I hoard patterned paper, so I won't! but I did grab this chicken-themed DP some time ago and have been saving it for the perfect time...
My husband's co-worker has a farmlet and he's given us a couple dozen fresh eggs this season and I wanted to make his family a thank-you card.
I adapted the basic Center Step Card tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers in SCAL and cut it on Silhouette Cameo. This made it so much easier to create and cut the layers.
