I must admit one of my favourite folds is the Center Step fold, the great part about this fold is how it displays your art work on the front of the card.  It is a super quick and easy fold to do and is very effective.

The stamp set I have used for today’s share is a hostess set called Gift of Love.  This is a two step stamp set but  I rather than using the solid image I stamped the outline image on Shimmery White card and used my Aqua Painter and ink pad lids to add colour.  While the flower images were drying I used the Timeless Textures stamps to create the background.  After cutting out and shaping the flowers I adhered them using dimensionals and the fine-tip glue.
