Fairy Happy Birthday-Challenge #68 @ TSC

Hello friends! Happy Summer!
Today I'm sharing the card I made for the card challenge going on at Tammy's Scrapin' Corner.
This week's theme is Make A Step Card.
I've never made a step card of any kind before so this was certainly a challenge for me.
There are many different kinds of step cards and I thought I would start with the side step card.
I thought it was quite easy to make after my fourth try at it. Now I could probably make them in my sleep! Well probably not at all but I was surprised at how simple it really was.
Here's the link I used for my instructions. Step Card
This card is smaller and much thinner than most of the cards I make but I was unable to find instructions for a 6"  side step card.
Normally I make my card bases from Super stock. It's 130lb double thick white cardstock. It's thick and gives so much weight to my cards. I love that! It can stand up to all those embellishments I like to pile on my cards. I need to score it slightly with an exacto knife to prevent the fold lines from looking like kaka freying. So since there was a lot of folding to be done for this step card I used SU cardstock.(SU cardstock is 80lb)

One of our sponsors this week is Bugaboo Digi Stamps. I used Girl Fairy Birthday Dust. Our other sponsor is SK Digis
I enlarged the sentiment that comes with the Bugaboo digi and fussy cut the ice cream cones after I colored them with chalks and covered them with a layer of Crackle accent.
I have some Tim Holtz Rock Candy that I've never used so I tried it on the fairy wings. They looked okay but really muted the colors because of the thickness of the glaze. Yeah I should have used Crackle accent for the wings too.
The paper is from Teressa Collins. The circular birthday sentiment is from SK Digis.
Thanks for stopping by!
And thanks so much for your wonderful comments every week!!
