Now on with the projects.

These side step cards are so much fun to make, the hardest part is to find the right embellishments to decorate your steps ;-)

Well, my first side step card has the steps on the right side. I decorated it with this cute Birthday Cake. The front step has the cake stand attached to, the second step has the big cake adhered to and the last step is the small cake with the candles on top.

Now my second side step card has the steps to the left. I couldn't resist to use my new tea cup dies from SU. I used the tea pot for the top step and the milk cup and sugar for the second step. The third step upfront was used for the phrase. 

Since I didn't had a big phrase to go on the easel side of the card, I decided to use the big cup instead. Aren't they cute? And in case you wonder how the sugar was done...simply cut some square little cubs and place them on a plate ;-)

Last but not least, my favorite golfer these days. Here I placed the steps on each side of the card. I dismantled the poor guy just a little... His golf club somehow slipped out of his hands ....ops!

I had another stamp from Art Impressions with a tall sign post that I converted into the hole flag and the golf ball itself is cut from the club.

All items were colored in with watercolor pencils, including the background and grass!
I will have more detailed pictures and descriptions of each card on my blog in the upcoming weeks. You can find a more detailed instructions on how these side step cards are made on my Thursdays blog post. I hope you had as much fun as I had making these. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Up next are the wonderful creations of Debbie!

Keep on crafting and don't forget to comment!
