Sassy Studio Sunday #19


Good Valentine’s Day morning to you.  It’s me-Sara, and I’m your hostess for today!  Please please be nice, this is my first ever tutorial, and I’m extremely nervous!!!  I tried to not do it, but they found me-hehe!   So today I’m going to share with you how to do a stair step card. 


For this fun card you will need a piece of cardstock cut 6 x 10 1/2 inches.  You’ll also need your DP, some glue, an image, and any embellishments you want. Oh and one of the most important things that you’ll need is a scor-pal or some other tool for scoring.   I did keep mine very simple today, because my DP already have enough on it for me!!

Next you will need to score the paper at 2 1/2”, 4 1/4” and 6”.  If your using a different scoring tool, you’ll need to score at 1 1/4”, 2 1/2”, 4 1/4”, 6”, and 8 1/4”.


Now, I’m going to try to explain this next part without confusing you to much!  If your using the scor-pal like I am, you’ve noticed it doesn’t have score marks at every 1/8”.  So what you’ll need to do is align the left side of your paper at the 3” mark and score again at the 4 1/4” mark.  Next slide the 6” score line on your CS to the 2” mark and score again at4 1/4”. 

Now fold all your score lines in the mountain/valley style.


This is how it should look.  Now get your dp and start measuring.  You’ll need to cut to these measurements.  1 3/16” x 6”, 1 5/8” x 6”, and 1 7/8” x 6”. 


Next glue those down on the folds as shown above.  Now you get to put you image/ images on to your card.  Like I said I kept mine very simple.  I used a MS punch and 2 SSD cameo images.  My sentiment is computer generated and added a small ribbon below it.


We would love to have you play along with us in this tutorial.  Rules are simple, use this technique, and an SSD image of your choice.  Use Mr. Linky to link back here and you’ll have a chance to win a dollar deal image of your choice.  Have fun, and I can’t wait to see what you create!  Don’t forget you only have until Saturday February 20th.  Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!!
