Crea-Sandra's Crafty World tutorial - Stepper Card

Hello everybody,

Welcome to my very first tutorial for Robyn's Fetish!
Today I am going to show you how to make a Stepper card.

Basic Supplies
Template from Noor!Design, you can download it here (the measurements are metric, it measures
8.2 x 5.3 inches)
Scoring tool or ruler and stylus
Craft knife
Cardstock for card base
Other supplies needed to finish your card
Digital images by Robyn's Fetish
Copic Markers or other coloring medium
Kraft Card stock
Designer paper
Flatbacked pearls
Banner die
Alphabet brads, or tiny stickers
Foam squares

Print your template on your cardbase, or draw it on your cardbase. I drew it, because you're able to erase the lines you drew when you're finished scoring and cutting.

Score at the dash lines. I used my ScorPal to score, but didn't use the measurements on it, because they don't match.

Cut the horizontal lines.

Prefold all the scored lines. I used my bone folder to crease the folds.

Your base is finished now. It should look like this.

Erase all your pencil lines.

Use Distress ink on all edges. I used Distress Ink Vintage Photo on the edges of all my papers.

Cut kraft cardstock about 1/8" smaller on each side as a mat for your designer paper. Don't adhere this to your cardbase yet, you will need this as a template for your designer paper!

Put your kraft card stock on top of your designer paper, but let the outer edges hang off about 1/8". This way your kraft card stock is slightly bigger then your designer paper, and you create a mat.

Trace the steps on your designer paper and cut it out.

Adhere the designer paper to the kraft card stock. The two main panels can be adhered to the card base, but do not adhere the 5 middle pieces to the card base.

Cut out your banners. I used a banner die by Joy!Crafts.   They fit perfectly.

Pierce holes in the middle of each banner to put your alphabet brad through.

Repeat this for every banner to make it look like this.

I used foam squares to adhere these to the middle parts, but you can also adhere them flat or put the brad to the middle parts too. 
Glue the middle parts to the card base.

I used my Copics to color the images. I used a color chart to see which colors match my designer papers.

Here are my colored images. I used the following Copic colors

W00, W0, W2, W5 for the white areas.
R81, R83, R85 for the roses and pink areas.
G43, G46 for the leafs and green areas.
After coloring I cut them out by hand.

QUICK TIP! Since I can't cut very precisely,  I always use a black marker on the outer edges of the colored image, so you don't see white edges.

Adhere the first teapot to the right panel of your card.

The teacup is popped up on foamsquares to give it more dimension. I partially adhered it over my teapot.

Adhere the other teapot to the left panel. Mine is hanging off on both edges, but since I am not going to mail this card,  it isn't a problem.

To finish my card, I used some lace on the top and some pink flat backed pearls.

This is the result.

This is it! I hope you all liked it and will try it. It is a fun folding technique and pretty easy because of the template.

Thanks for taking a look and  have a nice day!
