Tutorial Tuesday- Side Step Cards

This is the card I made for Mothers day! I am here to show you guys how to make the Side step card. Normally I would make it a few more times before I would do a tutorial on it but these are very very simple and easy that after two cards I have it down pat already! :) Love them!

You will need:
Paper 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 (Cardstock)
Paper Cutter

My Embellishments:
Slice Think Pink Mother Daughter image
Sew Easy
Scallop head
Pink Buttons
Pink Floss
Pink Embossing Powder

1) You are going to take your paper you are going to line it up with the 3 inch mark. One side is going to be 3 inches the other will be 2 1/2 inches. After its lined up you will cut down the middle from the 1 inch to 6 1/2 inch.
Its going to look like this when you cut it: (Pictured below)

2) After it is cut then you need to score it. You will score the 2 1/2 inch side at 4 1/4 inch. You only score til the cut line. You are only scoring the 2 1/2 inch side. Sorry the picture is a little blurry. 

3) You are going to score the 3 inch side. This side you are going to score at 5 different places. You are going to score 1 inch, 2 inch, 3 1/4 inch., 4 1/2 inch, and 6 1/2 inch. You are going to do the same as you did on the other side only score to the cut line. Your paper should look like this when you are done with your scoring. 
4) You then start folding. You start with the smaller side and fold. You fold the 3 inch side in a valley mountian style. You start by folding down (making a mountain). When you are done folding your card will look like this :
You are now done with the base and ready to decorate your card. When you set it down it will look like the picture below. They are so cute decorated! You can google for images on other cards. I got this idea for this card from Becky's Blog and then from there I found my tutorial that I followed from Split Coast Stampers. There tutorial is awesome! They also have a video on how to make them if you need further instructions. If you guys have any question feel free to ask and I will be more than happy to answer them for you guys! 

 Here is the finished card after I decorated mine. Have a Terrific Tuesday!

Until Next Time!
