Side Step Card Tutorial!

Hi Stamping Friends,

We made this Side Step card at my class yesterday and I said I would try to post a tutorial on how to make the card base.

I would like to mention that all my score lines were done with Simply Scored Scoring Tool. This would make a great Christmas present!!!

Step 1) Start with Cherry Cobbler 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card stock. Score at 4-1/4" like you would for a normal card.

Step 2) Slide the short side into the paper cutter at 3-1/2". Cut from 2-1/4" down to 7-1/4". Note: Do not cut right from the top.

Step 3: Slide the long edge into the paper cutter at 1-1/4" and score down to the cut line. Move the paper to 2-1/4" and score to the cut line. Repeat this process at 3-1/4" and 6-1/4". You can see the score lines that were already done on my sample.

Step 4: Fold your paper into mountain and valley folds. The center score line(4-1/4") becomes a mountain fold. 1-1/4" score line is a mountain, 2-1/4" a valley, 3-1/4" mountain, 4-1/4" valley and 6-1/4" mountain.
If this is too confusing, come to Super Fun Stamp night this Friday at 7:00 and I'll show you how to do it.

Here's the recipe for the card:
Stamps: Bright Hopes
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
Ink: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Versamark Ink
Accessories: Big Shot Die Cut Machine, Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Pearls, Cherry Cobbler 3/8" Quilted Ribbon

I hope you like the card.

Happy Stamping,
