All week long I have presented some form of "fancy fold" card for your viewing and/or for your instructions on how to make one. I will repeat... I'm doing what any of you will do and that is to go to Google, Pinterest or You Tube to find the information for yourself.
I cannot give myself credit for the fancy fold cards you have seen on this site. The only credit I will accept, is how I have used my imagination to dress the base card once it is cut and folded.
Today's fancy fold is a "side step" card. I have chosen to have the step on the right hand side. It could have been on the left. Here is some information to help you:
Another step card is the center step card:
|Together...Let your life lightly dance on the edges of time like dew on the tip of a leaf.|
The base can be made by doing the following:
* cut a piece of cardstock (heavy) 7" by 10"
* place the 10" vertically on your paper trimmer and place the left edge on the 4 3/4 line with the blade at the 1" mark on the ruler. Press down and cut down to the 8 1/2" mark on the ruler of your trimmer.
*slide the left side of the paper to the right and position the left side on the 2 1/4" mark, and as the first time, with the blade at the 1" mark on the blade ruler, press down and cut down to the 8 1/2" mark on the ruler.
*now place the piece on your score pad with the 10" horizontally across the top and score between the cut lines at 1" score. (Score only between the cut lines.
*score only between the cuts at 1", 2", and 3 1/2". At 5" score right through from the top down through to the bottom end. Then back to scoring only between the cut lines at 7 1/2" and 8 1/2"
* Fold on the score lines...1" mountain, 2" valley, 3 1/2" mountain, at 5" the sides are mountain, but middle section is a valley, and 7 1/2 mountain. Do Not Fold the 8 1/2" score line. That is there just for a little give.
* When all are folded, the card should be 7" by 5".Supplies:
