Owl Step Card {Tutorial}

Thank you all for your kind words regarding my step owl card. If you haven’t seen this super stinkin’ cute card yet click here to view it.

I had an over whelming response for the dimensions so I thought I’d whip up a quick tutorial for you all!! Also to answer many question about size, it is a standard size card and fits into any of Stampin’ Up!’s Medium Size Envelopes- page 182 of the New 2011/2012 Idea Book and Catalogue. Have you seen the New Catty yet…? I’m sure you are just DYING to get your little hands on it!! If you can’t wait to get your hands on a hard copy click here to view the web version. (I know, I know.. just not the same..but it will get you by until you receive your copy)… I just received another box of 8 catties so please contact me if you don’t already have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and I’d be happy to get one to you.

For those interested in placing an order during the summer please send me an e-mail ( I'll be ordering on the 15th of July (this friday) and August 1st. You also can order through me 24/7 on line, click here and click the shop now button at the top right corner. NOTE: if you are ordering online, please check that you see my name listed at the top of the website as the demonstrator for your order. Sometimes it will default to a demonstrator you have used previously. You may need to clear your cookies before a new demonstrator's name will appear.

With all your emails and questions about my step card, I eagerly await to see what you all come up with. Once you have created your step card please leave a comment on this post and link to your card. I’d LOVE to see how it turned out..! : )

Step 1 - Line up the short side of card stock in paper trimmer so the edge of the card is at 1-1/4" mark. Position the cutting blade at 1" cut all the way to 5".

Step 2 - flip card stock over and do the same using the same measurements above.

Step 3 - Rotate card stock to the longer side and from the edge to the cut line score at 1", 2" and 5".

Step 4 - Flip over card stock and repeat Step 3, same instruction above.

Step 5 - Score between the cut lines at 4".

Step 6 - Fold the score lines. The first, third and center score lines are mountain folds. The second score line is a valley fold. Reinforce score lines with bone folder to make the folds crisp.

Step 7 - Voila..stamp and decoreate as desired! -- This card fits nicely into Stampin' Up!'s Medium size envelopes.

Again, I'd love to see your version of a step card so please don't forget to leave a comment with a link to your card.. : )
