Stepper Cards with Clare Buswell
Happy New Year! Hard to believe we are working our way into January already! Let’s get this month started off right with some Stepper Cards from designer Clare Buswell. Now, I have seen these kinds of cards a lot but never make them. They are gorgeous and it amazes me how much detail you can get with ehse kinds of layers! So….I headed off to Pinterest and searched “stepper cards” and found a TON! None of them are as gorgeous as Clare’s cards but you will be able to find a simple tutorial on how to make them like this one here. You pretty much just make folds where you want layers. SO COOL!
