Technique Tuesday – Stair Step Card

Happy Tuesday!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you! Today it is this amazing Stair Step Card. I have done a stair step before where there wasn’t an inside to the card because it was all steps. This one is still a regular sized card (A2) and there is still an inside for you to write your greeting!

I love how the butterflies look like they are flying all around and it seems more like a garden scene than a card! Here is how it was made:

Supplies Needed: All you need is cardstock and your Paper Trimmer with cutting blade and score blade (or you can use your bone folder for the scoring)

You will start with a 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” sheet of cardstock. Using your Paper Trimmer, along the 5-1/2” side you will go in 2-3/4” and CUT from the 1” line to 5-1/4” line.  Now using your Score Blade (bone folders, Simply Score Tool), SCORE from the 2-3/4” vertical line to the right edge at 1”. Go another 1” up from there and SCORE again from the 2-3/4” to the right edge.  Then go to the top of 2-3/4” cut line and SCORE to the edge. Now along the 8-1/2” side, you will score at 4-1/4” up to the 2-3/4” cut line.

This folds your card in half. Now it is time to decorate! I used the Papillion Potpourri Stamp Set and Elegant Butterfly Punch! I then attached the butterflies onto strips of Window Sheets (the clear pieces) and attached those to the stair steps! The flowers and greenery were stamped using the Secret Garden Stamp Set! I can’t wait to try this out with a “birthday party” scene with balloons and a cake or….I keep going back to flowers! I love love love my flower stamp sets!

I hope you try out this technique. Please share with me your ideas on what “scene” would be the best in the comments below!

Happy Stampin’
