Tutorial: Centre Step Card

This card fold was such a hit at September’s class!! I am excited to share the tutorial with you. The centre step card is a terrific way to show off beautiful designer series paper; and at the same time, you don’t need to use a lot of your stash to make a huge impact!

Supplies needed:
Card base: 5.5 x 8.5”
Designer Series Paper:
1 piece 5.25 x .75”,
2 pieces 3 x .75

Accent cardstock:
1 piece 5 3/8” x 7/8”,
2 pieces 3 1/8 x 7/8”,
1 piece 3 3/8 x 3 1/8”

White for front of card –
3 x 3.25”

White insert for inside of card – 3.25 x 3.5”

(Note: If you prefer video tutorials, click here! If you prefer written tutorials, read on!)

At 1” in from the long side, cut your card base from 5” to 9.25”.



Repeat on other long side of card base.

Rotate your card base 90 degrees.
Score from each cut to the edge at 1”, 2”, and 5.25”.

Score between the cuts at 4.25”.

Your completed card base should look like this:

Assemble the cardstock and DSP panels for the sides and bottom of the card, and attach.

For the front panel, note that the white piece is not quite a square; it is slightly wider than it is tall.
Stamp your design and sentiment accordingly!

Attach the white front piece to the framing panel and attach to card base.

Attach the white insert to the inside of your card.

Happy Stamping!
