    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Michelle asks: "I would like to know if there is something that I can make to keep a side step card from falling flat! I have tried everything and the card eventually falls."
    A: I find that this problem usually is fixed by using sturdier cardstock as the base. 110# cover stock or a card with a weight around 300gsm is a great choice. You can find the Side Step Card tutorial HERE!
