Design Team Challenge, Fancy Fold, Side Step Card

Posted by Lisa Wise on

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.
