PWC255 - More Than One Fold

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.   

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Life is Good - Cooper" clear
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black" for image and Versafine "Toffee" for sentiment
paper - Stampin' Up "Peach Parfait" and "So Saffron" card stock; Paper Pretties "Memory Box Beach" dsp
miscellaneous - copics; Stampin' Up "Modern Label" punch; baker's twine; sun charm; bling; EK Success beach border punch
