Like most North Americans my husband Ron and I have a warped relationship with our dog Kodi. We refer to each other as his "Mommy and Daddy" and he gives us gifts on special occasions like Father's Day. I made this card for Kodi to give to Ron along with a new golf bag.
Most of you have probably figured out by now that I love depth in my cards and what better way to accomplish this than with a step card. This one is a side step and my tutorial is instructions for creating one of your own.
I used Crafty Secrets "Golf Time" for the golf aspects of this card. This stamp set will soon be loaded to the online store. The trees are a set of Stampin Up stamps. The golf ball was created by using a eb folder (swiss dot) and cutting out a circle. The grass is a Martha Stewart punch. The tag is Spellbinders. The golfer was coloured with copics. It's mounted on burlap.
This close up shows what kind of depth these cards give you.
SIDE STEP TUTORIAL
- 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" piece of cardstock
Step 1: Place the 5 1/2" side of cardstock against bottom edge of cutter at the 3" mark (orange strip at right side of cutter) start at 1" (bottom of slit) and cut up to the 6 1/2" ruler mark.
Step 2: Place the 8 1/2" side of the cardstock at the top edge of your Scor pal. The slip you created in Step 1 divided the cardstock into 2 sections one is 2 1/2" wide and the other is 3" wide. The 2 1/2" side should be the one at the top. Scor this section at 4 1/4"
Step 3: Now vertically flip the cardstock so the 3" wide section is at the top. Score this section at 1", 2", 3 1/4", 4 1/2", and 6 1/2".
Step 4: The first fold should be the single fold on the 2 1/2" side. Then make alternate mountain and valley folds until it looks like this.
