Center Stepper Card

Hello, today we are thinking out of the box and making our first center stepper card. This card came together very quick after I got all the measurements down pat. I hope you enjoy the tutorial and all the measurements are below.

Video tutorial: 

Cardstock 7 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches. Put the card-stock in your trimmer with the 8 1/2" side at the top and on the 2" mark. Bring your knife blade down to the 2 1/8" mark and start cutting from there down to the 7 1/2" mark. Take the card-stock out of the trimmer flip it over and do the same to the other side. Making two exact cut lines on both sides.

Take this piece to your score board and start scoring just from cut line to cut line at the 2 1/8" mark (make sure you put the card-stock in where the 2 1/8" cut line is on the left side, where you need to start scoring.) Then score all the way across the card at the 4 1/4" mark. Score at 5 3/8" just from cut line to cut line, score at 6 1/2" from cut line to cut line. Score at 7 1/2" from cut line to cut line.

Take out of your score board and fold, making sure to fold the steps in the center as such, back, forward, back, forward.

Mats are cut at the following:

Sides: 2 @ 1 3/4x4 inches
           2 @ 1 1/2x3 3/4 inches

Bottom: 1@ 3/4x3 1/2inches
              1@ 1/2x3 1/4 inches

First step: 1 @ 1 1/4x3 1/2 inches
                 1 @ 1 x 3 1/4 inches

Second step: 1 @ 3 1/2x4 inches
                     1@ 3 1/4x 3 3/4 inches

That is it, all your measurements and now just to embellish. Have fun these are addictive.
