Step It Up - TLC

This week's T echnique L overs C hallenge was to create a card using this "stair step fold" (aka. accordian fold ). These are so much fun to make--you could stamp directly on the card base, add punched items, create a scene, etc.  I'm really amazed at how proportionate my images are, considering they came from so many different stamp sets/companies!! Here's how I did it:  I cut my card base out of Certainly Celery at 10.5 x 5 inches and scored at 1.25, 2½, 4.25, 6, and 8.25 inches. Then you fold them as an accordian with the 1.25 in. end folded down in front. This looks really tall, but when you fold it all up at the end, it measures 5"x 4.25" so it will fit into a regular card envie =) STAMPS: Magnolia (girl), CuddlyBuddly (tree), Sugar Plum: Olivia's Birdies (birdhouse and birds), Sugar Plum: Scenery (flowers, grass), A Chemistry With Paper: Big Backyard (fence, dog, rock). {{Inky♥Hugs}}
