It's time to play with the Pretty Girls. This week's Paper Pretties challenge PWC255 is to make a card with more than one fold. Are you cringing? Getting ready to visit the blog on your reader?
Don't go, stick around and give it a chance.
For me this is a love/hate kind of challenge. I hate that I can't just cut a piece of card stock in half and paper it up. I hate that I have to think about and/or look up directions for a fancy fold. On the other hand I really love that I have to do this because it's actually challenging for me AND it's fun to see a different kind of card.
This is a center step card. It is surprisingly easy to make. I am astounded at how easy it is to make one of these. You can find a very easy to follow tutorial to follow on Splitcoast Stampers. I even made a change to the dimensions and had no problem doing it. You'll find directions for several fancy folds in the tutorial section. If you aren't a member just sign up, it's free.
