Center Step Pop up Card - Tutorial

Hello Friends!

Today I am excited to share a tutorial post on center step pop up card, It's not something new but it came out pretty well and I thought of sharing a tut for this! I have prepared it for this month's ICR post

I have done plenty of things here, center step technique, stamping, doodling, die cutting and pencil coloring.

Let's start with the making process,
Things needed: Thick cardstock measuring 5.5 inches by 11 inches, scoreboard, trimmer or cutting knife, any adhesive or glue for paper and scissors.
Additionals: pattern papers, stamp pads, stamp and die cuts, shimmer or diamond dust for decoration.


Line the cardstock on score board with 11" side on top, as shown in the above picture. Score at 1", 2", 6.5" & 10" as shown by arrows in the pic.

Now line the paper with 5.5" side on top, score at 1" from first horizontal line as shown in the picture i.e. leaving a gap of 1" from top. Score from 1" till 6.5" line. Cut the same with the trimmer or cutting knife. flip the paper & repeat the same on other side. So there will be two lines to cut.

Next score between the cut lines at 5.5" as shown in pic above with red arrow.

Fold at the score lines. Blue lines shows mountain fold i.e. raising upwards and red lines shows valley fold i.e. bending downwards.
And the card is done!

Next is embellishing it!

I stamped the images and coloured them with pencil colours. Sides of the paper were inked with stamp pads using foam pad. Hut was stamped on pattern paper. 
Did some doodling with white and black gel pen...triangles, dots and spirals. Fairies were stamped, fussy cut and adhered to the card. Lastly I thought of adding some shimmer to my card so applied some glue using paint brush and sprinkled diamond dust on it. I just did this on edges of the card and on die cuts. Lastly stamped the sentiment, words "Create" & "Your own" were added with foam tape. And it was done!
