Stair Step Card

This was the birthday card I made for Mom's birthday. Happy Birthday Mom! =)

This is a stair step card and they are actually pretty easy to make. You start with a piece of cardstock 10.5" x 5" and score it at: 1.25", 2.5", 4.25", 6", 8.25" and the rest is up to you. I included a couple different shots of the card so you can see how it is folded together.

I learned how to make it from Leslie Markland and copied a few of her ideas too. Thanks Leslie! I think Mom really liked it too!!

The stamp sets used are Shining Star, Life's Creation and For Every Occasion. The paper packet used was Perfect Day and the colors are Juniper, Sorbet, Tulip and Colonial White. On the piece in the front where "Happy Birthday" is stamped, I also stamped one of the small flowers in second generation from the Life's Creation set in Tulip on there. It's kind of hard to see. Then the stars in the back were cut out and then I layered them on Colonial White cardstock and cut them out again with the border.
