Birthday Cards | Stair Step Card Details – Part 1

Create cards just like this one using the In Symmetry Bundle (stamp set + coordinating punch). The combination provides quick and easy cards!

One thing I love about the card I’m demonstrating today is the tiered “stair step” area. It’s the perfect place to add additional images, embellishments and greetings. Step it up even more and add photos for a one-of-a-kind holiday or special occasion card.
