Stair Step Fold Card

This is my 2nd post for today. Please scroll down and look at my other post for today!!

Stair Step/Accordion Card

Hello Everyone,

Today it's my turn to host Method Monday over at InStyle Stamps!! Yay! We're going to use a Back to School theme for our project today. I went over to Splitcoast Stampers and found this adorable little card. I thought that you would have fun with this as well. Thanks Lynn for having this on the forum! These are the intructions according to Lynn. You can find the instructions and more samples at SCS.

It's called a Stair Step fold or an Accordion fold, depending on the orientation of your project. This would be a Stair Step fold since it's landscape, but this fold can work either way - portrait or landscape.

Cut your cardstock to the size of 10.5 X 5.0 - if you want to stamp on this, now would be the time to do it.

Score your cardstock at 1.25" - 2.5" - 4.25", 6" and at 8.25"

Now fold with hills and valleys (accordion style) making sure that the smallest (1.25" fold) is folded down, as this will be the front of your card) Look at my sample and you will see what I mean.

Now here's the fun part - decorate with anything - punches, cut-outs, stickers - whatever your theme is, just go with it. These cards may be done in landscape or portrait orientation so let your imagination run wild. Thanks for visiting my blog. Please come back tomorrow to see what I have to show you.
