I love this sentiment from the Beautiful You Stamp Set! I’ve used it a lot on many cards, scrapbook pages and gifts I’ve made. AND, oh my gosh!…It pairs so well with the boots image from the Country Livin’ Stamp Set. I was trying to figure out how to finish one of my woodgrain stair step cards I started a couple months ago and shared at the end of this video, and these two stamp images were in the same place at the same time. With a hanging lasso made from our Natural Linen Thread and a gold brad “nailed in on the top step,” this card came together beautifully!
If you’ve never seen a stair step fun fold card before, you are in for a treat. There is a little bit of measuring, but if you watch this video where I share a similar stair step card, you’ll be able to make one too.
A super awesome feature of these cards with my measurements?… They fold flat and fit into our medium sized envelopes!

CLICK HERE to see the stair step cards and my how-to video I shared on February 23, 2019. Watch the video to see how to put together a card like this. Then attach the designer paper, the stamped sentiment layer, the boots (with Dimensionals) that have been colored in with Blends Markers, and the lasso (which is just looped, tied in a knot and held in with a brad).

ANNUAL CATALOG NEWS
Due to recent supplier issues (and other factors), Stampin’ Up! will no longer be carrying the current die-cutting machine and trimmer: The Big Shot and Stampin’ Trimmer are retiring. These changes are giving Stampin’ Up! the opportunity to research and explore replacement options. But there will be a gap when we do not have a trimmer or die-cutting machine available. You will not see these items in the upcoming 2019-20 Annual Catalog that debuts June 4, 2019. Click here for more information.
