different Center step card tutorial

Hello to you all,  Tonight I wanted to share with you another way I found to make a center step card, that folds a little different.  I found it quite by accident on the internet and wrote down the instructions, and glad I did, cause I could not find it again later.   Soooo, lets get started.

This is is what the new style center step card looks like.. (How do you like the KaDoodle Bug file??)

the center of the card is recessed instead of the end pieces.
below is a regular center step card with the sides recessed..

 Now, here are the details..
step one..6 x 12'' card stock base

on each side of the card..go in and up one inc and cut up to the 7 inch line as shown

score lines are dotted and cut lines are solid.
Diagram is suppoesed to be 6 by 12, (not really life like, sorry)

below I am folding at the scorelines

this is what it should look like when finished

I hope this tutorial helped, now try one yourself:)
Happy Crafting, Cathy
