Side Step Card Tutorial

I have hopefully finally written up the tutorial for this side step card. I had heaps of trouble with it and had to delete all my work as it wasn't even showing on the blog and now I'm starting all over again. Wow I really admire you ladies who write tutorials all the time and keep up with your blogs so nicely. I hope you all enjoy this one as it sure has taken heaps of time. please leave me a comment if you like it to make me feel like it has all been worth it.
well here I am still an hour and half later. I am going to try to post up to step 5 to see if that will work. you will have to be patient to get the last 5 steps.
here's hoping....

Side Step Card

Materials Required:

  • Card stock
  • bone folder
  • stampin write markers
  • sponge
  • cutter
  • stamps
  • punches
  • two-way glue pen
  • scissors
  • stampin dimensionals

Step 1

Take an A5 card and turn your cutter upside down so that you can see the cm guide on the cutting ruler. Cut from 2.5 cm to 16 cm.

Step 2.

Step 3.

Fold as shown above. If you want the main panel of the card to be on the right side just fold the opposite way.
Step 4.

Stamp background in versamark. Here I have used the oak leaf from Lovely as a Tree.

Step 5

Sponge edges and mountain folds with choc chip.
