Faux Step Card with a Twist

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am back today with the “FAUX” Step Card that I changed up a bit … and I’m going through step by step with dimensions on how to recreate this card. Today I’m using the Hand Penned Petals bundle… and I love the way this card turned out. I have this all on video for you to view.

Let’s take a look at the video now …


  • Card Base: Basic Black: 9” x 4-1/4” then Score at 1-1/4”, 2-1/2” and 5-3/4”
  • Cardstock #2: Basic Black Center Step: 8-1/2” x 2-1/4” then Score and fold at 5-1/2”
  • Cardstock #3: Basic White 3″ x 4″ for inside of card / Scrap of white for greeting and Highland Heather as a mat (Cut with the Layering Circle Dies)
  • Designer Paper #1: Hand Penned Petals (Mint Macaron) for Center Step 2″ x 5-1/4″ and Floral Design paper is 3″ x 4″ and 1″ x 4″.

I find it easiest to lay the card base out flat when attaching the designer paper, as shown in the video.

What a fun twist to the card … placing your “center step” either on the right or the left side of the card. It gives you a totally different look. For my card, I choose to put my center step to the right to balance out the greeting which I let “hang over” the left side … that gives it another dimension to the card.

I love the way this card turned out! Don’t you just love that feeling when you’re done creating something that turned out sooo cool!

I hope you enjoyed the quick coloring technique as well …. it was fun and easy to recreate the watercolor look that you find on the Hand Penned Petals designer paper.

Enjoy making this fun fold … it’s really easy, and I love the twist of placing the “step” off to the side.
