Hi everyone, I’ve been wanting to make a 5 x 7 top fold Stepper card for a while.
You don’t tend to see tutorials for this size as you need 14″ length cardstock, so I decided to deconstruct it and find a way to make it from 2 pieces of cardstock and I think it’s turned out really well.
It’s so easy to make and a lot more user-friendly as you don’t need a cutting knife or trimmer to make all the cut lines, scissors 7 a scoreboard are all that’s needed.
I purchased the Wallace & Gromit dies last year when they were on sale and finally got round to using them on this card style.
SUPPLIES USED TO MAKE THESE CARDS
Wallace & Gromit dies available here.
Wallace & Gromit sentiment stamp set here.
Xcut Tartan Embossing Folder is an older folder, you may find it available on eBay.
The Pawsome Paper Addicts, paper pad I cannot find it for the £1 I paid, however, there are sellers on eBay here
