Stampin’ Up! ~ stepping up card and using scraps

Hi everyone, hope you have had a lovely long weekend. I've an extra day off work so won't be back until Thursday which means, essay and crafting! I've made a little card using up some scraps and where I had stamped some extras of the Hearts a Flutter set. I also had some scraps left from the story time papers having made the mini books the other day so waste not want not!

Next up is my stepper card. I had a little fiddle about with this (as in used up two pieces of scrap card) to get the measurements. In the end I have made the card as follows: 1. Trim down a piece of cardstock (or paper that is sturdy) to 5.5" x 8.5"

2. With the piece of cardstock portrait, draw a feint pencil line 2" in. 3. With the cardstock in landscape on your scoreboard, score down to the pencil line as follows:
7/8" - 2 1/8" - 4.25" - 5.5" - 6 .75" - 7 5/8"
and then, I used my trimmer for this bit, cut along the pencil line starting at the 7/8" to the 6.75" score line. Rub out the pencil line.

4. Then you just need to fold your card so it looks like this: 20130402_125952

So there you have your base and it is a case of decorate away to your heart's content :)
