Check the Sweet Stamps blog for details.

This is my first center step card. Thanks to Sandy's amazing pattern it was easy. (see end of post) Well, truth be told, it took my a few tries to cut it out right, but only because it was 1am and I was really really tired. 
But I'm so glad with how the final product turned out.

The images are stamped on vellum, and colored with marker from the back of the vellum.  I did a little bit of embossing on the shoes and gloves from the back to make the white really stand out.
