It’s always fun to create and give cards that have different folds or flaps to them, something other than just a straight cut and fold. Sizzix has created a whole line of dies called Framelits that allow you to create cards with these additional folds and today I’d like to share the Step-Ups Card.
I followed the Instruction sheet staying as close to the suggested design as possible. If you’d like to follow along you can find the PDF here. You can see from the photo that the card gives you 3 steps to put sentiments or embellishments on. In this case I used the flowers cut from the Sizzix Framelits Die Set: Basic Step Ups.
You can achieve this darling little tag and sentiment by using the complimentary Sizzix Framelits Die Set w/Stamps: Tags and the Sizzix Clear Stamps: Birthday. All of these Framelit and Stamps sets were designed by the super talented Stephanie Barnard.
Look at the difference you achieve by just changing up the paper and embellishments. Here I’ve made the perfect birthday card using Graphic 45‘s Time to Celebrate papers. All of these cards fold flat for easy mailing and fit a standard A2 size envelope. You can reverse the folds on the card base to have your steps on the left instead of the right (I’ll show you this in the video). You can also use the inside as the pretty side if you want something a little different.
Christmas is just around the corner and wouldn’t those on your Christmas card list love opening their envelope to find a card like this on the inside? If you come join me on the video I’ll show you the whole process step – by – step and also give you a few more examples to inspire you to create your own Step-Ups cards.
