Hello everyone,

Welcome to Karen, my newest follower.

Oh I am late in getting this post out here on my blog. Sorry!! I am back today with what is my last Craft-Dee BowZ post here for 2014. CDB will have a few more posts left to finish out the year and then will have two new designers starting in January. Make sure to check out the Craft-Dee BowZ blog for the last of this years' posts.

These stair step designs have always fascinated me and they are tricky to cut. So, I recently bought a stair step die from Accucut and decided to use that card design for this, my last Craft-Dee BowZ project for this year.

Let me share this card with you.

I used a typewritten designer paper to mat the front while I used an embossed white card stock to mat the back.

 On the steps I used a cut out of the word JOY using that same designer paper

Here is a close-up of my bow. I made a triple loop bow and positioned it up by the top step, allowing for the card to be closed and mailed.

Stamps:  Sizzix - Holiday Joy (Stamp & Die Set)
Paper/Card Stock
: Green CS, White CS, DP
Ink: Memento - Olive Grove, Peanut Brittle, Rich Cocoa
Dies Used: Sizzix - Holiday Joy(Stamp & Die set), Word Play Alphabet, Accucut - Stair Step Die
Craft-Dee BowZ  tool,  ribbon, embossing folder, dimensional foam, Starform Stickers (used as border on the front panel over the DP)

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I will be back soon,
