Fall is in the air - Cuttin' Up with Class Challenge #3

Hi, everyone!
It's been a busy past week: surgery for my husband on Friday, so we spent the weekend "quiet", and I have been dealing with fall allergies and icky RA issues this past week. I was happy to finish working on today's Cuttin' Up with Class Challenge! :0)
Today, Jani is giving away some great Fall Leaves SVG cutting files! Please visit the Cuttin' Up with Class Challenge Blog to download the FREEBIE, and don't forget to enter your project using the leaves for a chance to win more FREE SVG's from her! :0)
For this card, I used two of her Oak Leaf files. She also has some Maple Leaf files in the download, too.
This photo shows the card from the front, open and standing. When the card is closed, it measures approximately 5" square.

This card uses svg's called 
Fall Step Card
3D Flower Collection
These SVG files are no longer available for free.
Please visit my SVG's for Sale Page located at the top of this blog.

My papers are by Imaginesce, from a collection called Apple Cider. The 3D Flower that I used is from my 3D Flowers Collection, which you can find in My Etsy Shop.
The card base is something I created, and is also an available SVG for sale in My Etsy Shop, along with some other great step cards for the season! :0) It includes the cad base, designer paper layers for the side of the steps, the letters and layers, the step "trim", the digi sentiment, sized to fit the card as shown, and it's base layer. The leaves, acorns and flower are not part of the card file on Etsy: the leaves are Jani's (available for a limited time on the Cuttin' Up With Class Challenge Blog), and the acorns are cut from the SCAL basic shapes library.

This photo shows the card "steps" more clearly. There are three layers to the letters: the card base, a layer of red, and the letters.

I did some inking on the edges of my sentiment layer, the leaves, the acorns (which are cut from the SCAL basic shapes library), and the 3D Flower. I also did some embossing, and then inked, the stair "trim". A little bit of bling, in the form of a rhinestone brad, finished off the card for me.

So, that's it from me for today, folks! I'm still beat from my weekend, and trying to catch up on some rest, as I am headed on a road trip this coming weekend - my baby sis is having her first baby, Mikayla Paije, on Thursday! Yippeee.....I will be an auntie! :0) Road trips are always tough for me and my achey bones, but I am really looking forward to this one! :0)

Hope to see you all in the challenge entries! I love to come around and visit your blogs when you link up! Until then, happy crafting! :0)
