What a wonderful new technique we learned at Split Coast this week ! I've never done a Stair Step fold card before - have you? If not - I hope you'll try this out!These were Lynn's simple instructions: "Cut your cardstock to the size of 10.5 X 5.0 - if you want to stamp on this, now would be the time to do it. Score your cardstock at 1.25" - 2.5" - 4.25", 6" and at 8.25" Now fold with hills and valleys (accordion style) making sure that the smallest (1.25" fold) is folded down, as this will be the front of your card."
Here's a side view of my card to show the folds.
I made a forest theme card using a set from Artful INKables called Critter Country. I also used several punches - Cosmos flower, oak leaf, and butterfly all by Martha Stewart and the Key Tag punch from Stampin Up for the sentiment. I sponged the flowers and leaves. All the images are up on foam dimensionals.
Isn't this a great way to add a whole new dimension to our cards?!
