Stair Step Fold Card

Hey there stampers! How are you? Thanks for stopping by!
Today's card is a stair step card. I've seen quite a few of these around and finally had the chance to make one myself! It's easy and a nice change from the average A2 card. I found a great tutorial about the stair step card HERE.


  1. Take Kraft card stock cut at 5 1/2" x 10 1/2" and score at 1 1/4", 2 1/2", 4 1/4", 6", and 8 1/4". Fold at scores to create your card base.
  2. Take the candle image from the Party Hearty stamp set and stamp in Versamark ink on the back panel and front panel.
  3. Using Stampin' Write Markers ink up your party hats image and stamp on Whisper White cut at 1" x 4 1/4". Stamp the cupcake image on scrap Whisper White and cut out. Stamp the center of the B is for birthdays image in Rose Red and punch with the 3/4" Circle Punch. Clean off stamp and stamp again using Close to Cocoa and Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write Markers on Whisper White and punch out with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch.
  4. Add White Gel Pen doodle dots around a scallop circle in Bermuda Bay made with the Scallop Circles #2 Sizzix Bigz die and adhere to back panel of card. Punch two Only Orange Scallop Circles and add behind the B is for Birthdays circle. Add to Bermuda Bay Scallop Circle. Add center of B is for Birthdays image with a Dimensional.
  5. Mat party hats on Close to cocoa cut at 4 1/2" x 1 1/2" and add to center panel of card. Add cupcake image to front of card.
  6. Stamp sentiment in Close to Cocoa on Whisper White, punch with Word Window. Add to Bermuda Bay punched with Modern Label Punch, add to Only Orange punched with 1" Circle Punch and finally add to Close to Cocoa punched with Designer Label Punch. Adhere to front panel.
