Christmas Stair / Step Cards @ Inspired Stamps

Good Morning beautiful people!

I'm back once again to share with you a creation made using

Today the girls were asked to make a Christmas Stair / Step Card!  And until today, I have never made one of these!  I just love the Inspired Stamps - Nativity Set so I could not resist playing with it. 

Considering this is my first step card, I am impressed, it finished way better than what I had in my head!  I was trying to achieve a straw like background and I think I have managed it with the ribbon I used over the DP.  It is not only eye catching in real life but also feels wonderful under your fingers and unexpectedly it gives a great texture to the card.  I have not had a lot of time to 'shop' lately so everything is pulled together from my stash once again, though my stash could use a good shopping through as it is over flowing.

As always please call past the Inspired Stamps Blog 
and check out the amazing creations the other girls have made.
Their Christmas creations are sure to inspire you to Jingle all the way to your craft room!

I'll be back next Tuesday to share another Inspired Stamps creation with you! 
Happy Crafting till then!

Leesa, was the "straw" background a whole piece of ribbon or did you make it by attaching pieces together? It is so visually stunning, great job.
