Birthday Step Block Card

I am always learning new techniques or fancy folds and I came across a very interesting card.  They did not tell us what the fancy fold name was. I went on the hunt for the name and for directions.

I finally came across the name Step Block fold.  Once I had the name I needed the directions.  Best place to get directions for pretty much anything in life is youtube!  After watching many, I found one...Papercrafter45.   She made it very easy to follow with all the directions typed right on the photos and very easy to stop and go.

A co-worker of mine is getting into making cards and it was her birthday.  I wanted to make a really fancy card so this one was perfect for her.  The card folds flat so you can slip it into an A2 envelope.  Because of the big flower on it, the envelope was bulky but this card can certainly be made to be flat and be mailed with no problem.

Here is my version! 

If you like fancy folds with a WOW effect...try this one!  It actually is very easy!

until next time....
