Happy Campers Stair Step Card

Hi there. We go camping every year. A whole bunch of family and friends and we still camp in tents.
Card Partially Closed

On this rainy Sunday afternoon, I thought I would be able to spend some time on a fun card with a camping theme.

The Peachy Keen Challenge was a card with pen stitching. Just like it sounds, you use your pen and make stitch marks. This type of embellishment really adds pizzaz to a die cut. The Paper Play Time challenge was for a Mans' Card.
Card Open


Now how can you can you enter a PK Challenge and not use some of their fabulous face stamps. Look closely at the little star on the moons hat. Yup a little tiny 3/8" face from the PK-450 Wide Eyed Kids Assortment.

I used Provo Craft Cricut Cartridge Campin' Critters for ALL the cuts. I varied my sizes from 2" to 4' and pop dotted in different thicknesses.

Close up of Big Foot

Close up of the Owl

This is very hard to show, but Big Foot is on an Action Wobble! I love these. I only have a few from a sample but you can be sure I will be getting some more. They are easy to use and a fun addition to a card.
The Action Wobble

I added googly eyes to the moon, Big Foot and the Owls' 1 eye that showed.
All pen stitching is done in various colors of Flair pens by Pentel.
The cardstock is all Recollections.
The inking is Cats' Eye Chalk.
To start your stair step card, cut cardstock at 5 1/2" by 10 1/2"
Score at 1 1/4", 2 1/2", 4 1/4", 6", 8 1/4"
Card Fuly Closed

Let's see what kind of scene you can make.

    1. Just a lot of folding and unfolding to make sure nothing blocked each other.

    1. It was fun. Having only a few Wobbles, I have used them sparingly but they are wonderful each time I have used them.
