Fun In The Sun

 Yesterday I made my Wednesday live FB video (now on YouTube, click my link in the side bar) showing how to make the side step card we were shown at our monthly stamp club. This is different than the way I learned and it is really cool!

Since this was a make n take I do not know where some of the products used came from. I do know the lady is from Art Impressions but it's not on their website. I know where the die cut sentiment is from but I'm not at liberty to say yet. 

This is the template we used to cut and score our 10" x 7" piece of card stock. We cut the slit the long way at 4" and from 1 1/4" to 8 3/4". You have to use a paper trimmer with a sliding cutting blade.  Check my video for how to cut and score the card stock. I'm not sure I can adequately describe how here.

Here you can see how the card is folded before decorating. Don't you love the sun? It's attached to a piece of acetate then attached to the last mountain fold before adhering the waves die cut. Just make sure it isn't higher than the tall area of the card. Also be careful not to have too many items on the 2nd and 3rd steps that are foam adhered. My starfish is high enough to allow the card to lay flat.

This card will fit in a 5" x 7" envelope and will require extra postage.  And you can change the location of the slit in the card to either widen or make narrower the tall step. I didn't use much of my stash as so much was part of the kit.

I'll be making another one of these as my swap card for next month's class. I have a couple ideas running through my head....

I'm stealing the picture of your card for the newsletter. I made one, prepped another 24 of them... and nary a photo anywhere. LOL. Anyway, the palm trees and sun are by Lawn Fawn, the waves by Taylored Expressions, and the beach babe was part of a clear set from Art Impressions. It is for sale here and there. Google Art Impression Beach Babes and see what comes up.
