Golfers by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
I have a stair-step card for you today, featuring one of the Ai Clear sets: Golfers (sku#CS3467)
This is one of the less elaborate versions of a stair step card - (I know that my card is pretty busy!  But the design of the card itself is pretty simple).  Here's a bit more of a side view:
There are plenty of clear templates for stair step cards if you search for them on Pinterest.  My base is 5 1/2" x 10 1/2".  Up from the shorter side, score your base at 1 1/4", 2 1/2", 4 1/2", 6" and 8 1/4".
Here it is folded:
I coloured my golfers and cut them out in a circle shape, then zigzag stitched around them with my sewing machine.  While surfing through Pinterest, I also came up with the idea to create a little pennant banner over their heads, so I stamped the word "FORE"onto matted triangles, then used liquid glass to attach them to a string of Baker's Twine tied between two toothpicks:
I created a little putting green for the second stair, and glued the flag onto it, then glued the sentiment onto the first stair.  Here's a close up of those fabulous plus-4's that I paper pieced:
Happy stamping everyone!
