Snow Angel Stairstep card #1


I love making these stairstep cards. I joined a swap on my Yahoo stamping group and I have to make 3 cards. This is card # 1.

I woke up Sunday morning to this wonderful snow surprise and felt inspired to get out this set to commemorate our snow storm! Although this stamp set is retired, it is still one of my favorites!

I stamped the set of mittens in a line to use as a border. The images are colored with SU! markers and highlighted with my Sakura glitter pen...wish you could see all the glitter on this card!

I am putting the finishing touches on a cute Penny Black stairstep card and have a Gruffie stairstep floating around in my head (somewhere LOL). Stayed tuned.

To make a stairstep card, cut your carstock 5 x 10 1/2 inches and score at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 4 1/4, 6, and 8 1/4.

Stamps: Snow Angels (SU! retired)

Cardstock: Real Red and Brilliant Blue, DP is DCWV

Ink: Mememto Black, SU! markers

Misc: Snowflake punches from Marvy and Emaginations, Bling clear dots from Hero Arts

Card Size: Standard A2

Pin It!
