Step Card Tutorial with Little Birdie Crafts

Step cards are one of my favorite styles because they stand up so well and are so pretty with their dimension shape.    Today I will show you how to make these pretty cards.


1.  Begin by cutting a card base. I am using Little Birdie's beautiful Shabby Chic Bouquet Collection for my card.  Here is the template for cutting the card base that measures 6.5" x 5.25".  Here is a link where you can download this file.  You just need to carefully measure and cut and fold as shown on the template.  If you have a Cameo or similar machine, you can draw this file in the program and save it to use in the future.  That way you could also adjust the size of the card.

2.  After you have cut out your base and folded where indicated, it should look something like this.

3.  Now fussy cut these two items out from the design paper.

4. Cut 2 floral strips 1 1/16" x 4 1/4".  Cut the long lace piece 6 1/2" x 7/8".  Punch out the doily from the doily sheet and select and clip a cut-apart from the cut-apart sheet.

5.  Adhere the two floral strips on the sides down from the top fold line and adhere the lacy piece at the bottom as shown in the photo below.

6.  Now it's time to decorate the front of the card.  Adhere the two circle elements as shown in the photo below.  Be sure that you only adhere to the center panel and not the side pieces.  Pop up the Eiffel Tower with foam tape and adhere on the left side.  

7.  Add a cluster of flowers on the left corner, again being careful not to adhere to the side panel.  (The card will not open if anything is glued there.)  

7.  Now let's do the inside of the card.  Cut a piece of design paper 4 1/8" x 6 1/2" and adhere to the center of the card.  Adhere the cut-apart from step 4 in the center.  Cut two pieces 1 3/16" x 4 3/8" and adhere on the sides as shown.  That's it, the card is finished!

Your card should look like this when it is finished and standing.
