PaperCrafter 136 Stepper Card Kit
1 Cut a blue blank down to 28cm and lay landscape. Draw a line 3cm up from the bottom edge. Score down from this line at 8cm, 16cm and 22cm from the left-hand edge. Score upwards from the line at 3cm, 6cm and 17cm from the right-hand edge. Cut the line between the two outermost score lines and concertina fold in opposite directions to create a side stepper card.
2 Cover the main panel of the card with leaf paper and add pink paper to the remaining front faces of the card. Fix a sentiment and die-cut motifs to the card with 3D foam pads, allowing parts of the motifs to extend from the edges of the card. Embellish with pink and blue gemstones.
1 Lay the pink blank landscape with the largest part on the right-hand side. Score at 7.5cm from the right to halve it. Score the left at 2cm, 4cm and 9cm from the left-hand side and concertina fold.
2 Layer blue foliage paper onto the front of the card, snipping around some of the toppers to create sections that stand up from the fold. Secure a sentiment and die-cut motifs to the top of each step to finish.
