A Little Girl's Birthday - A Stair Step Card



A few days ago I asked For your prayers as I worked on a birthday card. A grandmother had asked me to create something special for her granddaughter's ninth birthday. I decided to use my Cricut and specifically the cartridge, A Child's Year. I absolutely love the images on this cartridge. They can be used for so many occasions.

I tried to reflect the changes in a young girl on this card. The first image is of a child celebrating it's first birthday. The second image is of a young girl playing at the beach. I picked this image because one of my friend's most prized photo is of her granddaughter at the beach. And finally, I picked a slightly older image of a girl holding a bird. My friend loves birds and I thought this image would remind her granddaughter how much she is loved! There are several great tutorials on the web. Just search for stair step cards! Thanks as always and I look forward to talking with you again soon!

Blessings
