Side Step Card Tutorial with Showcase Farmer Thanh

Hiya Farm friends!

It's Showcase Farmer Thanh and I hope that your week is going well so far. I received a lot of sweet comments on my last Wonderland side step card and I thought it would be great to show you a tutorial on how to create your own side step card.

I'm going to be using one of TGF's latest releases, Sitting Casual, with a masculine/hockey theme. (My home team is the Vancouver Canucks so those are the colors I chose). Let's get started!

One 5.5 x 8.5 piece of cardstock
Paper trimmer
Scoring Tool (I used Martha Stewart's)
Embellishments for your card

Step 1: Line your cardstock at 3" on the hamburger side

Step 2: Start at 1" and cut your cardstock all the way to 6 1/2"

Step 3: Score the 2 1/2" (smaller side) of the cardstock at 4 1/4 (your regular A2 size)

Step 4: Now score the 3" (wider) side at 1, 2, 3 1/4, 4 1/2 and 6 1/2

Step 5: Fold your score line at 4 1/4

 Step 6: Fold the first score line (1") on the right hand side of the card down

Step 7: Fold your second score line (2") the opposite way and continue so that you are accordion folding the right side of you card.

Voila!! Just a reminder of what my card looked like:
