BSS Monday Challenge-Side Step Card

Good Morning. Monday is the day I post a challenge for my local stamp store, Buffalo Stamps and Stuff. Today's challenge is to make a Side Step Card. There are a lot of tutorials on the internet, and here is one of them. It's a video tutorial, so you get to see how easy it goes together. (thanks to Mary who made this video) The card folds flat for mailing.

Stamp credits are:

Bunny with carrot -Inky Antics

Basket of eggs - Great Impressions

Little Chicks - Darcies

Word sentiment - Printworks

I glittered the eggs in the basket and the little chicks. I used fun flock on the bunny's tail.

I made my card a little bigger than the tutorial

I cut the cardstock 5 1/2 by 11

I cut the slit starting at 1 inch in from the left to 8 inches from the left ( a 7 inch slit)

The slit is 2 1/2 inches from the top of the card

I scored below the slit at 1 inch, 2 inch, 3 1/2 inch, 5 inch, and 8 inch

The 5 inch score goes from top to bottom NOT just below the slit.

Sounds complicated, but after you watch the video tutorial you'll see how easy it is

to fold this card and then get to the decorating.

Have a great Monday. Thanks for stopping by. Until later...............
