Stair step birthday card!

Hey there!  How are you today?!  Doing well, I hope!  Have you ever tried making a stair step card?  I have wanted to try for a while and finally sat down today to make one.  What a fun thing!!  Lots of room to be creative with this card. What do you think?

This card stands on it's own so all of the different layers show themselves off at once!
 I water colored the flowers using an Aqua Painter and layered one on top of another to add dimension.

 It folds flat and will fit nicely into a regular card sized envelope for mailing.

I went with the classic black, red and cream for this card.  That combo just looks so elegant to me!

Lots of details crammed into this little guy makes for a fun card. :)

Stamps:  Mixed Bunch, Fabulous Florets and You're Amazing
Paper: Real Red, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Garden Green and Silver Glimmer Paper
Ink: Real Red and Old Olive
Punches and Dies: Decorative Label punch, Blossom punch, 2 Step Bird Punch, Itty Bitty Punch set and Beautiful Wings Embosslit
Extras: Dimensionals, Dazzling Details and Aqua Painter 

If you would like to try one of these cards you can find a great tutorial here.  

Have a wonderful day! See you soon!

This is so pretty! It has been ages since I made one of these (pre-demonstrator) and I don't think it went well... Might have to try this again!
