A Birthday Stepper Card

Hello, Janice here again with you to share my latest
card made for the Dies R Us Inspirational Blog

I started by cutting my card base from an A4 piece of white linen card, 
using the Spellbinders Card Creator Step Card die - Gift of Happiness.
This is a great die to use and comes with various little dies to use for decoration.

I then carefully folded the card on all the score lines to create the steps.
Next using the rectangular die which is included in the set, I cut and embossed a piece of 
lilac card and glued it to the front of the card. 

Using the Impression Obsession - Umbrella die, I cut two from purple card 
and glued them one on top of each other to give some extra depth.
 I added some punched flowers, punched butterflies, and pearls to the centre of the flowers.

Next, I cut three small rectangular pieces of lilac card and glued them to the 
front of each step.
I decorated the back step with the heart and the wrapped gift dies 
which come as part of the die set, glueing them halfway across the back, 
so they are raised up on the step.

I then stamped the sentiment on the middle step. Lastly to decorate the lower step, 
I cut two Memory Box - Peppini Laurel in white card, and coloured them with
 my Promarkers. I then glued them together and attached to the card.
Lastly, I added sequins, diamantés and a purple gem to finish the decoration.

These are the dies I have used:-

  1. Janice that is just the sweetest, love the purple and yellow combo, I like the little flowers coming out of the umbrella and great decorating of the step portion too, I have never thought of putting the sentiment on the second step, I like that!!

  2. How delightful this is, Jancie! I especially like the flowers filling the umbrella. I especially like that your steps increase in size, and your sentiment is included in the middle step. Lovely way to use the dies!

  3. OH WOW this is awesome Janice! LOVE this beautiful step card in PURPLE (yay my favorite! lol) And, what a great use of dies! Awesome inspiration ... thanks!

  4. I love step can fit a lot more dies on them than on a two dimensional card. Love your card!

  5. Janice, this is so cool! I've been wanting to try one of these step cards and have procrastinated because it seems so overwhelming. You've done a fabulous job and I'm so inspired to try one.

  6. Janice your step card is so the CAS of it!!!
