Fitting Florets Faux Step Card

Today I'm sharing another one of my favourite fancy folds - the Faux Step Card.  I used the Fitting Florets Bundle and Designer Series Paper on this Thank You card.  Love the combination of Balmy Blue and Evening Evergreen.  

The Faux Step card is so easy to make - it has become a staple in my "fancy fold" library.  No more cutting and scoring with the Paper Trimmer and if you're like me, getting wrong!  This card is made with 2 pieces of cardstock adhered together to give the same look.  Check it out!


  1. Cut Thick Basic White cardstock 4 1/4" x 8 1/2".  Score at 1", 2" and 5 1/4"
  2. Fold and burnish on scorelines with Bone Folder - start with 1" score and fold in Mountain, Valley, Mountain configuration.
  3. Cut Thick Basic White cardstock 3" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold and burnish on scoreline using Bone Folder.
  4. Adhere to card base - in the front on the 1" flap and on the 3 1/4" flap on the back
  5. Cut Balmy Blue cardstock 2 3/4" x 5 1/4"
