March 2019 SBTD Blog Hop - Step It Up

Hello Hivers, 

Welcome to another Stampers By The Dozen Blog Hop.  This month we are focusing on card designs.  What we have to do is design a simple card and then design a more stepped up version of that same card.  

Here is the simple version of my cards.  I couldn't decide on what color to use so I made two cards.  I made the first in Smokey Slate and the other is Balmy Blue.  I used a little Pineapple Punch for the Honeybee.  The sentiment on all the cards came from the Host stamp set, Very Vintage.



For the Stepped Up version I added some framelits and bling into the mix.  For the Smokey Slate card I used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits and the other card uses the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
I also used the Be Mine Stitched Framlits on the Balmy Blue card. 
Another difference in the cards are the centers.  On the Smokey Slate card the center is recessed and on the Balmy Blue card the center is raised.

Take a look.



Here's a close up of each card.


I hope you have enjoyed your visit to the Hive today.  Sooo...What did you think of my project for this Hop?  Leave a comment and let me know.
