Step In The Name Of Love

Hello Friends, Followers, and Viewers
Where has the week gone?  Yikes!  I am back today with a different type of  card (Center Step Card) that I made… inspiration came from what I had been making all week (Fancy Fold Cards).  R. Kelly has a song that uses the title "Step In The Name of Love" but I'm not singing today.  Personally, when all is said and done and you know the one you serve...then you can step in the name of love and not tiptoe around in secret (someone out there know what I'm talking about).  I'm closing  out this blog week thinking of you with love on my mind.

One 5 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock for card base
Scor-Pal™, or other scoring tool
Paper trimmer
Additional cardstock, pattern paper and embellishments for decoration
Step 1
Line cardstock up in paper trimmer so that the edge of the card is at the 1" mark. Position the cutting blade at 1" and cut from 1" to 6.5".  Flip card over and do the same on the other side.
Step 2 
Place cardstock onto scoring tool and score along the long side of the card from the edge to the cut line at 1", 2" and 6.5".
Step 3 
Repeat step 3 on opposite edge of card.
Step 4 
Score between cut lines at 5 1/2".
Step 5 
Fold at the score lines. The first, third and center score lines are mountain folds. The second score line is a valley fold. Reinforce score lines to make folds crisp.
Step 6 
Stamp and decorate your card as desired.

When praises go up, blessings come down.  Just bring those feet off the floor and "step in the name of love today, tomorrow and forever.  Have a great weekend!
Sending you a hug and LOVE,
