Center Step Card
by Frances Byrne
Create a unique card with a few cut and score lines.
- One 5 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock for card base
- Scor-Pal™, or other scoring tool
- Paper trimmer
- Additional cardstock, pattern paper and embellishments for decoration
Line cardstock up in paper trimmer so that the edge of the card is at the 1" mark. Position the cutting blade at 1" and cut from 1" to 6.5".
Flip card over and do the same on the other side.
Place cardstock onto scoring tool and score along the long side of the card from the edge to the cut line at 1", 2" and 6.5".
Repeat step 3 on opposite edge of card.
Score between cut lines at 5 1/2".
Fold at the score lines. The first, third and center score lines are mountain folds. The second score line is a valley fold. Reinforce score lines to make folds crisp.
Stamp and decorate your card as desired.
Change it up
Vary the width of the center panel or the two side panels by adjusting the width of the card that you start with.
