Today's card is a Side-Step Fancy Fold.  There are many versions of the Side-Step Fancy Fold out there, but for my first attempt at making one, I thought I would keep it on the simple side.  So I only gave it one step.

I also wanted to be able to show off a larger piece of this beautiful paper design from the Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Aren't these packages so pretty?  I wish my packages looked this pretty after I finish wrapping them.  I've become more of a "gift bag" person lately.  How about you?  Are you a "wrapper" or a "gift bagger"?

On the left side of the card I embossed a piece of Misty Moonlight with the Snowflake embossing folder from the Wintry 3D two-pack.

The tree was cut from the silver striped DSP also from Whimsy & Wonder and then the Blushing Bride Tinsel was provided thanks to another die from the Trees Dies.

The sentiment covers the bottom step and both shapes were made with dies from the Tasteful Labels Die set.

I decorated the inside of my card by layering a Misty Moonlight and Blushing Bride mat under the decorated Basic White cardstock.  I stamped a couple of the cute little trees and then added a sentiment.

What do you think of this card?  Have you ever made a Side-Step Fancy Fold Card?  Would you like to try but aren't sure where to start?  Why not start simple, like I did, with a single-step!  I have a detailed tutorial available that has all the cutting and scoring dimensions you need to give it a try.  

A complete list of all products used to make this card is also shown below.

Product List


  1. This would be a good card for a technique class...looks very daunting but I'm sure is easier once you see it. Very pretty :)

  2. I'm working on the "more complicated" version of this side-step fancy fold for our 10/16/21 class. I hope I can figure it out!
