Stair Step Card








I got this adorable idea as well as the directions that she was kind enough to give me from Dianne Shiozaki, http://www.stmprdee.blogspot.com/. It was quite easy. I kept the colors simple: Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White for the cardstock and a little Chocolate Chip ink. I used a lot of punches, only cutting out the "Love" part and mat, as well as the large heart. The ink pads and blender pens were used to give a bit of color. The bottom photo shows how it folds down to fit inside a regular envelope. This is a sneak peak for my Sweetheart Stamp Camp that is right around the corner. Here are the dimensions from the card that Dianne gave me: Start with a 10.5"x5" sheet of carstock (I used Pink Pirouette) then score at these spots: 1 1/4", 2 1/2", 4 1/4", 6", and 8 1/4". Then you fold it like a fan to make the stair step. I used a strip of 5"x 1 1/2" Riding Hood Red for the front part, then cut the top with the Scallop Edge punch. The Top Note die is adhered to the last stair, just slightly elevated...grab an envelope to be sure that I'll still fit inside. Good luck...I'd love to see any Stair Steppin' that you've done! :)
