No, No, No Cards!

That's it, anything but a card is the theme at Pattie's Creations Challenge #92. I had some extra apothecary jars hanging around, so I filled it with my Mini Maple Walnut Chocolate Chip Biscotti! What's great about this, it's Low Carb and Sugar-Free! I brought some to a Kentucky Derby Party at our nephew and niece's house, and it went over really big! I'm thrilled when a recipe of mine that fits my lifestyle, works for 'regular' people. What I mean is they don't follow a low carb lifestyle.

Creation Details
- designer paper for the band around the jar
- designer paper die-cut with scalloped circle
- Image 'Chocolate Chip Cookie Jar' also die-cut with scalloped circle

Easter and a Tutorial

Easter is this Sunday and I didn't even realize it was here already! I thought I had another week before thinking about what to cook for Easter dinner, oh well.
Today's creation is another step card (my own design) that's very easy to make. Over at Pattie's Creations Challenge, our theme is none other than EASTER!!

Step Card Details:
- base is a white card stock
- pastel papers are digital from Fred She Said
- image Duckie in Egg is digitally colored by me
- ribbon bows are from Embellishment World

1 - Cut card stock to 7" by 10"
2 - Place stock on your scoreboard and score your 10" width at 4", 8", and at 9"
3 - For the front step, cut designer paper at 3/4" by 6 3/4"
4 - For the main panel, cut a solid color paper (or designer paper) 3 3/4" by 6 3/4"
5 - Designer paper panels, cut 2 pieces at 1 1/2" by 3 3/4" and place them at 1/4" from either side of solid color paper (or other designer paper)
6 - My image was composed digitally, but you could fussy-cut your image and place it on the center of the main panel
7 - Add some embellishments and a sentiment
8 - Instead of putting wording on the inside of the card, place it on the rear panel
