"I Did It"

I have had this desire for the last few weeks to make one of the stair step cards that I had been seeing on Pinterest. I searched and searched trying to find a tutorial on how to make one. I found several but they all seemed rather complicated. Many were written with the measurements written in centimeters. I could have converted the centimeters to inches, but I wanted it done for me. I was being lazy, I guess. I finally found instructions that seemed to be ones that I could follow. After making several prototypes, I finally came up with my own plan. It was time to try using some of the new card stock from Graphic 45 that I had purchased not too long ago. Here is my card---

Here is a list of the things I used--

  • A black card base cut to measure 11 1/2" x 6"
  • Paper from the 12" x 12" pad of the Graphic 45 collection "Guilded Lily" 
  • "Vintage Photo" Distress ink
  • Spellbinders Petite Oval Dies for cutting out the image on the front of the card
  • White seam binding (Hug Snug) that I had dyed with re-inkers, crinkled and allowed to dry
  • Our Daily Bread Designs "Flower Border" stamp (stamped on natural card stock and heat embossed with gold embossing powder) then cut out with the Spellbinders Label 18 die
  • flower stamp from Stampin Up's "Colorful Seasons" stamp set, cut out with coordinating die (stamped on Blushing Bride card stock using the Blushing Bride ink pad -- details added with the SU Primrose Petal marker and yellow Stickles)"
  • Finished card size  --  4 1/4 " x 6" 
I hope to be able to share my instructions at a later date. I have to figure out how to write them all down so that someone else could follow them.
