Challenge Me #9

Ok so this has been going on for a while, So I am going to put an end to the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge give away. Yes, I am still giving it away but you only have until the end of January and then I will draw a winner.
Here is the comment that requested this card.

Hi, I would like to see a step card made with the Sugar & Spice Lite cartridge. Maybe make a scene with a little girl doing something. Can't wait to see it :)
Melisa really wants this cart because she has entered 3 times. So bring on the challenge.

I have to say I was really challenged, this has taken a lot of time because I had to learn how to do a step card, I have never seen one in person and watched many videos on youtube to see how it's done. I decided I was not doing this to show you how everyone else does them so I wanted to design my own. I saw some that were called center step and some side step cards but could not find one that had a step in front and on the side and that is what I pictured in my head. So this is my own design and I have directions in the videos.

There was alot more I could have done on the card, I used only Sugar and Spice Cricut cartridge, I could have added some flowers and a kite from the cartridge, but I like to leave a little something for others to make it better for them.
 Here is the cut file for CCR

The first video shows how to do the card base only so if you want to see how I designed the card base watch this video.

The next video shows how I put together the Sugar and Spice pieces, It shows how they are in the cut file and how the paper is set up on the mat. Most of it is high speed.

Please comment with questions or comment!
Ok now I need another challenge!
