RRCB154 First Birthday

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  Time for a new Retro Rubber challenge, where we give some of our older stamps some love!  Our challenge this go-round is "Anything Goes"!  

My card today is for a sweet little boy who will soon be celebrating his first birthday!  I chose to make a "stair-step" card to celebrate that big day!  Here we go:

Bonanza Buddies (Jan 2020) is such a great set for children's birthdays, and I still have some of the matching DSP, so I chose that to complement my Poppy Parade card.  I used the measurements and directions from Splitcoaststampers (look under Tutorials for "Vertical Step Card") and the little lion to decorate the left front of the card.  His little hat is decorated with a pompom too!  How fun!

The right front features images and a number from Number of Years (2016):

Here's a side view, where you can see the "steps".....I added little squares of coordinating DSP and used a Papertrey alphabet die for the letters:

And since there was one extra square at the bottom, I fussy-cut a little ice cream cone and attached it! 

This was a lot easier to create than I thought...the hardest part was tracing the panels and cutting out the DSP layers!  I will definitely be trying a couple more of these!  I hope you'll play along with our "Anything Goes" challenge at Retro Rubber this week too!  Just a reminder to use stamps at least a year old, and let us know how old they are!  Hope to see you there!  Thanks for popping in today!

More clean-up....this stick is as big as she is!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!
