"Center Step" Card Tutorial by Suzanne

Good morning!! Suzanne here from Scrap With Suzy with a step by step tutorial on how I made yesterday's challenge card:


This is called the "center step fold" :) Using my Martha Stewart scoring board (what did I do before I owned this???) and paper trimmer, I made the following scores and cuts:

 
You will pop up your card like this and crease the fold:


Use a valley fold on the left and right sides:


I have found the best method for adding paper to these edges is to cut 2 strips and score in the same places:


Then, adhere them to either side:


Add your 3 3/4" x 4" card front to the center step:


And embellish! :) I used the "Basketful of Flowers" stamp set from Paper and Such for my main image and sentiment.


I hope you give this fun card fold a try!
