Double Side Step Card Tutorial

Hello, everyone! My computer is back! Yay! Well, not completely. My video card is acting up and some of my softwares are still missing. But it will do for now.

This week at Club Anya and Friends, it's my turn to host Whatcha Tootin' About Wednesday and I want to share with you this double side step card! When I made my first double side step card, a few people asked if there is a tutorial or a template for it. I haven't seen too many tutorials and the templates I have seen so far are in cm. So, I went ahead and created this template in inches, much easier to follow and understand.

Step 1:
Cut cardstock to 5x7 and score as indicated on template. I find it easier to mark the cardstock with pencil first and the score. I then double check the measurements with my ruler. If the measurements are off, the card will not fold neatly.

Step 2:
Crease your folds (mountain, valley, etc) as indicated on the template. It's a good idea to make a sample and keep it as future reference. Also, you may want to make extras so that the next time you want to make one of these, you have the card base ready.

Step 3:
Decorate you card as desired. Here is my card. Here is my card using the recently released Miss Anya Lounge set.

Wanna try this out and have a chance at winning a single stamp of choice from The Greeting Farm online store? Well, let's play along! LOL Hope everyone enjoys this little tutorial. This is my first time doing a tutorial so if you have any questions, let me know!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
