Making a Fancy Fold Card using Stampin’ Up!® Products

Hello Everyone,

I’m not usually one for fancy fold cards, but thought I’d try something different to show you all today!

I call this a stepper card. There are a number of ways to make them with different score lines to create different sized panels.

I made my partial score lines at 1¼ and 2½ inches and cut at ¾ inches….

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

I used Misty Moonlight as the card base with the beautiful Hand Penned Designer Series Paper….

This is my original sample using some left over DSP from the recent Sale-a-bration event….

I hope you enjoyed this project.
