Stair Step Fold Card ~ Santa Style!!


This was so much fun to make. I saw this challenge over at SCS on Monday but didn't have time to play until today. I will be making alot more of these.

Here are the directions to make the card itself:
1. Cut cardstock/paper to the size of 10.5" x 5".
2. Score your cardstock/paper at the following measurements 1.25" - 2.5" - 4.25" - 6" and at 8.25". Fold with hills and valleys (accordion style) making sure
that the smallest(1.25" fold) is folded down, as this will be the front of the
card.
3. Decorate as you wish!

I used plain green cardstock as my base and then adhered some Bo Bunny paper to each of the 3 panels. On the panel in the back, I attached a piece of Imaginisce paper matted onto more green CS and then adhered my stamped image (Inkadinkado) and ribbon to it. The presents are Inque Boutique stamps and the Santa was printed out from my Print Shop program. To finish it off, I added some more ribbon, a button and some hemp cord. I also added some Ultra Fine Glitter to all my stamped images for a
little bling!

Happy Thursday everyone!!

Oh and please leave a comment so I can get to know my visitors!! Thanks!!

Hugs, Melissa

I recently made my first stair step card and I, too, had so much fun with it. I was reviewing the SCS gallery when your card and Santa caught my eye.
