Tutorial: Easter Step Card

Make a step card with our tutorial here from Jodi! These cards looks so pretty and are easy to make with our step by step guide.

Crafter's Companion Supplies:

Other Supplies: Pencil, Ruler, Craft knife, Memento ink for stamping, Computer/printer for sentiment font


Step1: For the card base, cut a piece of cardstock to a measurment of 8" x 12".

Step 2: Using the Big Score scoring board, follow this template for scoring lines.

Tip: Mark all of the score points lightly in pencil before lining paper up onto score board to aid in positioning beginning and ending points of score lines. Simply erase pencil lines after scoring.

Tip: When scoring, place the 8" side against the edge of the board and score all of the vertical lines first. Then rotate cardstock 90 degrees, place the 12" side against the edge of the board and score the 3 horizontal lines.

Step 3: Final scored card will look like this.

Step 4: Using a craft knife and a straight edge ruler, cut score lines as indicated by lines shown in red in above template.

Step 5: Fold score lines as shown here. This will create the "step" look.

Step 6: Print patterned papers and toppers from the Bebunni Floral papercrafting CD to decorate the card base. Add some diecut flowers and a sentiment to finish off the card.

For an extra finishing touch, the edges of the patterned papers and the toppers were airbrushed using Spectrum Noir markers (DR7 and DG3).

Sharon shaz said...

i think the 8.5" should be 8"

Sharon shaz said...

yes just cut this and 8.5" should be 8"

Jodi Clark said...

I'm terribly sorry Sharon, I believe where it says 8.5" it should say 8". I will have this corrected on the blog, but it probably won't be until Monday. Thank you for pointing this out!

Jodi Clark said...

Thank you Sharon, I have submitted a corrected template image to have the blog post updated, but they won't be back in the office until Monday. Will get it updated soon. Thank you for trying out the tutorial, I hope you enjoy making these cards, they are really fun to decorate :)

Can you tell me how you filled the holes of the steps please .Thanks xx

Jodi Clark said...

Hi Pauline, thanks for the question. The holes of the steps are left open, only the front facing part of each step gets decorated.
