Step Card with Graphic 45's Midnight Masquerade Collection

 I love step cards, I just think they look so pretty standing up the way they do!   I made this one for Graphic 45's display at Creativation and I kept it kind of simple as I had a lot of projects I wanted to do for Creativation.  I just used a cut-apart from Midnight Masquerade in the center and then added some strips from design paper.

 Inside the card, I added a journaling cut-apart and again, used strips from design paper on either side of the cut-apart.

Here's a view from the side where you can really see the "step".   Wouldn't this be pretty displayed somewhere?

I used a lacy Cheery Lynn diecut behind the cut apart.  It adds a festive look to the card especially with the fussy cut mask and flower in the front of it.

 Sometimes, simple is good and it can be a bold statement.  Don't be afraid to use an image like a cut-apart  as the focal point of your card.  Embellish the cut-apart with a flower or trim and it will look great.  I am guilty of over thinking my projects, and I have a tendency to keep piling on the "stuff", then I say to myself, "Maggi, simple is good, leave it alone!"
