Tutorial: Centre Step Card

My good friend Penny taught me how to make these wonderful centre step cards that stand up beautifully for display.  You can make these cards in lots of different shapes and sizes by altering the measurements and fold placements, but I'm going to show you using the same measurements that Penny showed me.

1. Start with a piece of cardstock measuring 12" x 4".  Using the template (above) measure and mark your folding and cutting lines.


2. Use a craft knife or a trimmer to cut along the cut lines.  Score along each of the fold lines. 

3. Use the fold guide to fold along all the score lines you made earlier.

4.  All that's left now is the embellishing!  I adhered my main image on the centre panel then added some co-ordinating patterned paper on the two side panels and across the bottom.  Some strips of punched white card, a few adhesive pearls and a sentiment stamp finished it all off.

  18. What I did was using double sided tape was to stick a 12 inch x 6 inch of coordinating scrapbooking paper to the cardstock before measuring and cutting out - once cut and folded it give a more finished product and was no trying to cut paper to fit sides after I made the card as it is all covered exactly, even the back of the card as well. I really love this template and am sure I will use it over and over again. Thank you so very much.
