Stair Step Card Inspired by Stamp TV

I saw the stair step card on Stamp TV and it looked like a fun card to make. I used Recollections 110 lb. Heavyweight cardstock in white cut to 5″ high by 10 1/2″ long. Score it on the 10 1/2″ length at 1 1/4″, 2 1/2″, 4 1/4″, 6″ and 8 1/4″. You will start your folds at the 2 1/2″ folding up, then the next score down, then the next score up, then the next score down. Use your bone folder or a ruler to make sure each fold is really well bent. You should get an envelope that fits a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card and put it under your card as you build it. That ensures that you will be able to fit the card into the envelope when you are finished. I used several Stampin’ Up floral punches and matching Stampin’ Up stamp sets called Petite Petals, Mixed Bunch, Three for You and Petite Pairs. I used Simon Says Stamp Black ink to stamp my sentiment on the bottom right corner from a Stampin’ Up set called Too Kind. The colors I used were Stampin’ Up dye inks in Rose Red Cranberry Crisp, Purely Pomegranate, Pretty in Pink and Sweet Sugar Plum. I used a Martha Stewart leaf punch that I used on two different colors of green. I also had a Stampin’ Up punch that matched a stamp set called Friends and Flowers that I used for a variety of leaves. I used Always Artichoke Stampin’ Up ink for the leaves and then used my Touch 5 markers to colors the Martha Stewart leaves to make them look more like the rest of the flowers. I added brads to the centers of the flowers for a little more bling. Sorry that some of the card was out of frame so you didn’t get to see all of it being built, but I was hoping that if you saw the first row built, you’d get the general idea. Make sure you only put glue on the bottom half of your flowers as you don’t want the backs to stick to the rest of the card once it is folded closed. I thought this was a really fun card to make and hope you’ll give it a try. Please check out my destashing videos, as 100% will go toward peoples affected by the floods and hurricanes. October 28th is the day that we will put up the video where people’s affected by the floods/hurricanes will be able to list the tools that they lost and viewers will send the tools that they have to those people affected. I hope you’ll join me in “Making a Difference.”
