A Step in the Right Direction

This month for the Patterned Paper Challenge at CraftyHazelnut's  site, I chose to do an inside step card.  I found the file in the Silhouette Store.  I have seen this card several times and thought it looked like too much work to even try.  So, I decided to bite the bullet and climb out of my box for this one.  I was surprised when I got it all cut out.  It couldn't have been easier to  build.
