I made my very first EVER Side Step Card for these challenges today!
I found that Lori Whitlock has several different types of step cards in the online Silhouette Store, so I downloaded a few of them and thought I'd give them a try.
One of the many things I love about my Cameo, is that when it made the cut for this side step card, it cuts several dashes along the fold lines (instead of one short cut in the middle) and this makes the  cardstock want to fold exactly how it should. Another wonderful thing about this cut file is that not only does it cut and perforate the fold lines, but it also has the pattern paper mats already sized to fit this card! Way cool. They've thought of everything!

Here's what I did.....

First I cut the side step base, pattern papers, inked around the edges, and adhered to my card.

  • Pattern papers from K&C "Lion Sleeps"
  • Pink paper inked with Stampin' Up "Cameo Coral"
  • Turquoise paper inked with Close To My Heart "Lagoon"

Then I imported some Lettering Delights Fishy goodness into my Silhouette software. 
I placed the colored and grouped SVG off to the side of my mat (so it wouldn't cut); 
copied that; 
pasted the copy on my mat;
ungrouped the copy that was on my mat;
and slide the different colored layers around for cutting.

Got my mat all lined up with the colors....

Oh, I'm already having fun and excited about this card and it's not even done yet!

I pieced everything together adding some Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink here and there... and then.... voila!

Ticket stamped image and sentiment are both from Cardz TV Stamps "Ticket Talk 2" stamp set inked with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

This was so easy! I bet I'll be making more of these Side Step Cards real soon!

Thanks for stopping by everyone. Have an awesome Monday! :) Janis
