Today’s tutorial is for the Stair Step Fold card. It was a Technique challenge  last fall and took off like crazy.


I thought this card style would be perfect to show off die cuts made with the Borderabilities and Pendants (Eyelet) from Spellbinders.

My card base is a 5 1/2″ x 10 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock. It was scored at 1 1/4″, 2 1/2″, 4 1/4″, 6″ and 8 1/4″.

The paper, you guess it, is Thoroughly Modern Designer Paper from Stampin’ Up! I used Whisper White, Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede Cardstock as additional cardstock. The circles were cut with Circle Nestabilities. The ribbon is Bermuda Bay Polka Dotted Ribbon.


The sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede. It is from the Hostess set Wings fo Friendship.

The swirl is stamped underneath in third generation Bermuda Bay. The flower from the same set was stamped in Soft Suede, colored with Bermuda Bay and Blender Pen and adhered to my main image with dimensionals. A clear rhinestone brad in the center of the flower finishes it off.
