Birthday Sundaes - Challenge #44

Good Sunday morning again. It's time for the new challenge at Birthday Sundaes. And Kristie has a great one this week.

This week the challenge is to create a Stair Step Birthday card. I had never even tried this type of card before, so I was quite intimidated. Kristie has 3 different tutorials for 3 different types of Stair Step cards. I chose to create one using her first tutorial, which is from from Splitcoast Stampers.

But before I show you my card, I have to tell you about our sponsor this week. Stamp Fairy is sponsoring our challenge this week.

They are offering 1 lucky winnder a $10 gift certificate to Stamp Fairy. Be sure to check out the really cute images they have to offer.

Stamp Fairy offered the design team a couple of images to use for our challenge. I chose the Birthday Kids 1 image. I printed the image 2 times - once on plain cardstock, the 2nd time on some patterned paper.

I cut the box and the party hat from the patterned paper and glued them onto the image on the cardstock. I cut along his shirt so that it still looks like he's inside the box. I have been wanting to try paper piecing with a digi image for a long time. It sure was fun and I am happy with the way it turned out.

I hope you will give the Stair Step card a try. Make sure to check out the design teams' wonderful work. All of the different types of Stair Step cards are represented. They are all so pretty.
