Other Products: Brad, bows, scissors/trimmer, distress oxide ink blue, versafine onyx/grey, clear embossing powder, pink gel pen for rosy cheeks, corner punch
Instructions: Cut white cardstock 12 x 4” and score every 1 1/2” both landscape and portrait, giving you 1 1/2” scored squares. Cut 1 x 4 1/2” joining strip and score portrait down the centre, trim from both edges to form a point at each end, this helps to hide the joining strip.
Lay the scored 12 x 4 1/2” out landscape from the top row of squares count squares from the left and completely cut away squares 3, 4, 5. On the 2nd row completely cut away square 4. With scissors, make a cut line to run the length of the square (1 1/2”) adjacent to the cut away area, for example: top row the 3rd square was cut away, the square adjacent is square 2, cut the bottom score line under square 2, this will mean square 2 is attached to square 1 by only one score line. Repeat this to every square next to the area cut away (there will be photos on my personal blog to help).
Burnish all the score lines. Row 3 square 4 will be the top of the card (B)Baby/Boy. Adhere each opposite squares next to the area cut away which will form step (O) and (Y).
Colour the cardstock blue (or use a coloured cardstock). Adhere the joining strip and form the step shape.
