JAI 468 Just add C - Magnolia centre step card

It's Friday and new challenge time at Just Add Ink, and this week could possibly be the easiest challenge ever...

Card? But no, that's really tooooo easy. I came up with a ton of C's but decide to make one of my all time fave folds - the centre step card - using a mix of the beautiful Good Morning Magnolia stamp & die bundle teamed with the Free as a Bird stamp & die bundle.
You may spot some other C's too.

This is a combination of my Original Centre Step Card Tutorial with an extended panel like my extended Centre Step card.

I think the gorgeous magnolia image from Good Morning Magnolia is the star here. I stamped it on shimmery white cardstock and coloured it with Stampin' Blends markers in a combination of Calypso Coral, light Petal Pink, Crumb Cake  and Mint Macaron, plus light pool party around the image. See more challenge C's there. I also snuck some clear Wink of Stella onto the flower for even more shimmer.

I teamed the magnolia with some very pretty paper prints from the Bird Ballad paper pack. Suuuuuch a pretty pack. This coordinates with the Free as a Bird stamp & die bundle I've used for the sentiment, stitched label and vellum panel.

I used the stamps and labels on the extended panel at the bottom too. The patterned paper strip is popped up on some fun foam to keep the front standing - see how it stands in this pic.

 The card folds flat for mailing - depending on how enthusiastic you've been with your layers.

Here's how the base looks flat too - front & back.

So that's a wrap on my 'C' challenge card. Check out which C's the team used on their projects, here on the here on the Just Add Ink blog.

Inspired to make our own version?

To make the extended version, don't cut anything off the card length. Add an extra score at 21cm so you can fold the remaining piece under to form the bottom-base. You'll have to just trim a little off if off the end & fold it under the main card.

Like my card? Save it on Pinterest for later. All the supplies I've used are listed below. Click on the links to order what you need to make your own.

Happy stamping & inky wishes

Di - This card is a work of art! I have downloaded your card instructions for your cute penguin card and hope I can recreate this amazing magnolia card! Can you tell me the final folded measurement before it goes into the envelope? You sure share lots of great info - Thanks so much!

Hi Barb
Wow, thanks so much. The normal finished card should be a standard US size if you use the inch measurements. This exact one is a little higher due to the vellum label, so may need a custom envie. If you want it to fit a standard one, just omit, use a rectangle or place a little closer to top. Happy stamping.
