For today's tutorial, I am going to share with you some very simple instructions on creating a stair step fold. It's a really neat way to add dimension with layers and create wonderful scenes with your stamps!
One 5 1/2" x 10 1/2" piece of cardstock for card base
Rubber or Digital Stamps
Ink or other coloring medium
Additional cardstock, patterned paper and embellishments for decoration
Score your card base at 1 1/4", 2 1/2", 4 1/4", 6" and 8 1/4", on the long side of the cardstock.
Prefold all score lines.
Please excuse my paint covered finger in the photograph :)
Fan fold the cardstock on the score lines (up/down or mountain/valley style) to create your card base.
Decorate each "stair step" to create your scene!
My sample features the Whimsie Doodles set, Sunny Day. I used strips of clear acetate to suspend the clouds, sun and hot air balloon into the air. I also replaced the strings of the hot air balloon with real string. All of the tree tops were colored twice and popped out with 3D dots.
I hope you all have a SUNNY DAY! Join us tomorrow for our Earth Day themed Whimsie Wednesday challenge!
