I recently made my first side step card - I had been putting it off as all the measurements I could find were in inches, and we here in the Antipodes use metrics, and our card comes in a slightly different size to the American sizing.
I finally 'bit the bullet' as it were and worked out the correct measurements for the card and getting the folds to work - thankfully the 'steps' are covered with paper and you cannot see the one 'oops' that I had.
(I have typed up the dimensions - if anybody wants them, just let me know)
This is the final result, with which I am very happy.
I used the stamp set Lovely As A Tree by Stampin' Up, and varied the colours by mixing inks on the stamps, and fussy cutting the images.
The patterned paper is from the Kaiser Craft After Five pack.
Some of the inking is a bit odd as I ended up having to use a linen textured card as I was running out of plain card....
The sentiement is a (retired) Crafts Meow Stamp, that I cut to put the words side by side. It was embossed with dark green ep.
