Design Team Challenge, Fancy Fold, Side Step Card

Side Step Card

This card proves that fancy fold cards can be quick and easy. This card only requires 1 slit cut and a few score lines to create. It was fun, quick, easy, and looks like you spent a ton of time on.


 Cut and Score:

  • Cut a 8 1/2” X 5 1/2" cardstock base.
  • In the portrait position, cut a slit on the 2 1/2" mark from 2 1/8" to 7 5/8".
  • In the landscape position (with the slit beginning at 2 1/8" on the left), score at 2 1/8; 5 1/2; 6 3/4; and 7 5/8" just to the slit. In the same position score at 4 1/4" all the way across the card.


  • Fold on all the score lines.
  • Fold the right side of the card fan fold style to create 3 stair steps.
  • Mat the right side: 3/4 X 3”; 1 ¼ X 3”; 2 X 3”. Ink Edges. Add decorative punch “icing” to the top. I also cut candles from a free cricut cut file. I assembled by layering a thin piece of white cardstock to the back of the candle and adhering the flame to the end, creating a wick.
  • Mat the left side with birthday patterned paper cut to 2 ½ x 4 ¼”. Ink Edges. Add die cut shapes stamped with Happy Birthday from the All Occasion stamp set.

 I hope you enjoyed this project. I am just getting started with my social media accounts. Please follow me on Facebook and Instagram and subscribe to my YouTube Channel @ Have Photos Will Scrapbook.
