Halloween Cards - Center Step

I recently learned how to make a Center Step Card (thanks Michele!) so I thought it would be fun to make some Halloween cards with that design.  It is actually very simple but visually packs a punch!  The size of the center and side panels can be changed based on your center design size.  There is a great tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.  Finished size is 5.5 square. Give it a try! (HERE is Michele's card on SCS)

  • Card 1
  • Stamps: Waltzingmouse- Cottage Home, Inkadinkado (sentiment)
  • Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
  • Paper: Neenah Bright White, Black cardstock, Echo Park - Apothecary Emporium 6x6
  • Other: clear embossing powder, Halloween brads, Copics
  • Card 2
  • Stamps: Impression Obsession- Graveyard Cat, Stampin' UP! (sentiment), Lockhart (swirl)
  • Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: Neenah Bright White, Black cardstock, SU! Wisteria Wonder, Echo Park - Apothecary Emporium 6x6
  • Other: Spellbinders die, Martha bat punch, Copics
