A Side Step Card with Peaceful Boughs


side step card with peaceful boughs

Stampin' Up! has so many beautiful die sets that make trees now that it isn't hard to create a die cut forest of snowy trees to populate a snowy diorama-like display for a Side Step Fancy Fold card. I've been thinking about doing something like this for awhile, and since I got my newsletter finished and posted yesterday, I had a little time today to come up with an interesting design.

I'm planning to recreate this card and show you how to do a side step fancy fold in my Facebook Live session today at 11 am on my Playing with Papercrafting Facebook page. It's been converted into a YouTube video for you here:


Now, take a closer look and I'll list the materials and measurements here:

  • To create the card base for this fancy fold Side Step card, I used the following template (cut on the solid lines and score and fold on the dotted lines):

  • After scoring and folding the card base I used the curved snow bank dies from the Pine Woods Die set to die cut the snow curves for the steps. I started with Whisper White cardstock with these dimensions:
        5 1/2" x 1 1/4", 3 1/2" x 1 1/2", and 3 1/2" x 2 1/4"
  • The sentiment on the side piece is from Peaceful Boughs and it's embossed in Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder on a piece of Whisper White cardstock that measures 2 3/4" x 3 1/4".
  • The reindeer is die cut from Bronze Brushed Metallic cardstock measuring 2" x 3".
  • The white trees can be die cut with the dies from In the Woods die set on a piece of Whisper White measuring 3 1/2" square.
  • The large evergreen is from the Pine Woods Dies and is die cut from a piece of Silver Foil at least 2 1/4" x 3 1/4". You'll need 2 of those.
  • You'll need 3 smaller evergreens, die cut from Silver Foil pieces at least 2 1/4" x 3 1/4".
  • Then you just have to glue everything on the card base, making sure the edges of the objects do not overextend the edge of the card.
And that's it! Watch for the video later today!

Happy Stampin'
