I am back for my second post this week and this is a fabulous stepped up birthday card handmade! It’s fabulous because it’s soooo easy!! Again, I’m  using the Stampin’ Up! Broadway Birthday stamp set!  But today, we are taking the SIP CARDS that we made on Monday, and adding the coordinating Broadway Lights Framelits.  I am still using the Notecards, same colors and Designer Series Papers…..just added a little more cardstock and the dies.

I have to tell you that this fabulous stepped up birthday card was still easy and what a difference the cut-outs and dimension adds to the overall look of the greeting card. You’ll be missing out if you don’t grab this bundle and we all need birthday cards!



Fabulous Stepped Up Birthday Card Video

Today’s video shows how you can go from a SIP card to a STEPPED UP card.  It’s full of tips for using the Broadway Lights Framelits to make birthday cards! You could easily switch out the sentiments and convert it to a congratulations card.

SIP Cards

Here are the SIP cards I shared on Monday for comparison.  Remember, the cards today were not harder….they just took a little longer because I used the coordinating dies and did some layering.  Same simple stamping!


What do you think?

Are you a more SIP stamper, or a STEPPED UP stamper?   I would love to hear from.  Please leave me a comment with any questions, your thoughts about my card series, or anything else you’d like to share.
