Center Step card

Hey kids!  It's Cindy for the SBC blog today.  I'm sharing a cool cardbase tutorial.  So grab your paper trimmer and scoring tools. 

TiP:  Save your skinny paper scraps, too.  You'll need them on this one :-)

1.) start with a 5 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock
2.) 1" from the left- cut from 1" to 6 1/2"
3.) 4 1/2" from the left - cut from 1" to 6 1/2" 

1.) from the left edge to the cut line, Score at 1", 2", 6 1/2" 
2. ) from the other cut line (4 1/2" from left edge) Score at 1", 2", 6 1/2" from the cut line to the right edge
3. ) Score at 5 1/2" just between the cut lines

Time to fold:
Start at the 1" score line and make a mountain fold, at the 2" make a valley fold, at the 5 1/2" another mountain, at the 6 1/2" another mountain.  It should look like the one above.

A side view.

Now the fun part-decorating it :-)
