  11. Absolutely Love this card, but am confused as to how to go about getting a piece of card stock that is 17" long! Did you have to piece card stock together? I so want to make a step card like this but need some advice on card length. Can you help? Thanks. Suzanne Cole

    1. You can find big sheets of Cardstock at Michael's or Joan's in the art department. You can also piece it together at the creases if you have a smaller piece of Cardstock.
      Hope this helps! Thanks for your comment!
