Happy Birthday

This is a stairstep card I made for an aunt.  You can actually make this card and do the measurements yourself.  I got a really good deal on a die so I used that.  It is nice because you run it through the Sizzix and you are done. 

The picture gives you an idea of what it looks like, but the real thing is so much more dimensional.

Butterflies for you

Most of  the cardstock in this card came from the Treasures line.  I love it because it has a slight texture.  The Green is Grass and the tan is Crafty Brown.  Actually the two patterned papers are the same color cardstock.  I have some really big background stamps that I have not used much.  There was a curved handle you were supposed to use with them, but it never really worked well.  Now I have a Misti tool for making sure stamping comes out perfectly and I am back into using them.
The cream colored piece on this card is Neenah Super Smooth Ivory.  The stamps on the Ivory piece are from Stampin' Up
