As Promised

I had almost forgotten that I said I would give the measurements for the stair step card on my blog.  I had an email asking for them from one of the followers so here they are.  You need to start with a piece of cardstock that is 5 1/2'' x 10 1/2'' in size.  I have used a decorative striped heavy paper for my card, but you can use anything you like as long as it has some weight to it.  You need to score the card at 1 1/4'',  2 1/2'', 
4 1/4'',  6'' and 8 1/4'' and then fold on the score lines in a concertina manner.  You will have three mountain folds and two valley folds for your card.  After that, it is just up to you and your creativity to fill up the three front sides of the mountain folds.  The glittery twinkles on my spotlights did not photograph very well, but  I hope this inspires you to give it a go anyways!  All for now, Sue x
