Combination Easel and Stair Step Card Tutorial with Einat

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you a fun Combination Easel and Stair Step Card Tutorial.

So use thin chipboards, cut out images or stickers to embellish the card.     Combination Easel and Stair Step Card Tutorial Start with a 5 1/4" x 12" piece of double sided cardstock.
