I would like to thank Picture Keeper for sponsoring this blog hop. 

See below for more information 




on how to win!
  

If you want to play along with our blog hopping fun, you can go to the beginning 


This is a Side Stair Step Card

I found instructions on Shelly's Images.  
She has great instructions on how to make many different folds.

This is Shelly's site:
http://www.shellysimages.com/side-step-card.html
Recipe of my card:

  • I used card stock from Bazzill
  • The paper is from paper stacks that I had in my scrapbook room.
  • I used my gypsy to pick my cupcakes.
  • I used Straight From the Nest, From My Kitchen and Sweet Treats cartridges.
  • The saying B-day on Lyrical Letters
  • I cut them out on white paper and colored them with my Copics. 
  • My Cuttlebug was used to emboss the paper behind the B-day.
  • The presents in the back of the card was cut from paper
Come back tomorrow for the next card.
Here is the list of all the stops:
Picture Keeper’s method of baking up photos SO  simple anyone can do it!
  • Plug the small USB drive into any USB port on your computer.
  • Click “Start Backup”.
  • Picture Keeper finds and saves all your image files to the USB device!
Cool Facts:
