Another cute Step Birthday card

Created this Step Card for my nurse Liz. I'm really loving this style. I do have to say though, it doesn't allow you any space to sign. But it's such a unique design maybe it doesn't need one.

Birthday Wishes for my 14 year old Nephew

This up coming weekend will be my nephew's 14th Birthday...Gosh where does the time go?! How these kids get older, but we don't, I'll never understand!
These cards were so much fun to put together and although it looks like there are a lot of details I really only used 1 cart for each card, and just a few coordinating colors. Which makes for easy layering, and assembling.
For the card, I used a technique called a Step or Stair card, which is super easy to make. But really makes for an interesting card. Continue reading below for the exact measurements.
