Big Sky Stampin' Papercrafting

I have been a crafter most of my life, starting in about 8th grade when I tried to embroider some frogs on a quilt, that I never finished! Although the list of what "I never finished" is long, and includes cross stitch, knitting, crocheting, quilting and more, my latest obsession is paper! I joined Stampin'Up! as an independent demonstrator in October 2011 and have been going like crazy ever since! I offer classes in my home, do catered card parties at your home and sell my cards locally in Bozeman, Montana and around the lovely Gallatin Valley. I would love to meet and talk to you if you are interested in the papercrafting hobby or just need some unique handmade cards for a special occasion!

Fun Folds #3 - Center Step card

Hi stamper friends!
I'm continuing my series on Fun Folds cards. They are a little more time consuming to make but oh, so fun!  There are many variations of today's card. In fact, once you understand the mechanics, it would be relatively easy to design your own and move the "steps" around a bit!  Here's the card:

Here are the step-by-step directions:

1. Cut card stock to 8-1/2" by 5-1/2".
2.  Cut from 3-1/2" to 7-1/2" on the card stock, with a 1" margin on both sides. 
3. Place the card horizontal with the 3-1/2" section on the left. Score the middle section of the card at 4-1/4". This is the top of your card.
4. Score the outside margin pieces at 3-1/2", 6-3/4" and 7-1/2".
5. Fold on score lines and use bone folder to make firm creases.

6. Decorate with DSP and stamping

Describing these directions with words is always a bit challenging!  I highly recommend you practice on a piece of card stock first and even write on it where all your cutting and scoring lines are. Then, keep this one as a sample to refer to in the future!

Don't miss the next couple of days!  I'm ending my blog posts this week with a BANG!  I have some really special Fun Folds for you to see!

Have a great, creative day!
