Side Step Card

Hey Kids!  It's Cindy and it's Tuesday!  I hope your week is going great so far!  I have a side step card to share with you today.   Tip:  Make sure you've got good lighting when taking photos of your apologies, I went to edit my photos and realized my lighting wasn't good....Ahhhh!  Don't you hate that??  LOL!  So, sorry!  I'll do better next time!

Start with a 6x9" piece of cardstock.  2" from the left side cut from 2" down to 8" (dotted line in the photo)  Sorry, my photo isn't the greatest! 
Turn your paper so it's now horizontal.  Score from the top edge down to the cut edge at 1", 2", 3 1/2", 5", & 7".  Then you want to score from the cut line to the bottom edge at the 4 1/2" mark.

Okay, time to fold.  Starting at the 1" score mark make a mountain fold, then a valley fold @ 2" score mark, then mountain @ 3 1/2", valley @5 and mountain @7.  The score mark at 4 1/2" on the left side of the cut is also a mountain.  See the photo.

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
