This card is based on the asymmetric box mechanism, taking it to the next level. I made this card for a friend’s 30th birthday, the colors are a bit more “boyish” and the card is clean and basic.
It’s so easy to make, and has a great impact. I wanted you all to be able to do this one, so I made you a template! just download the Step Up template, and make your own!
Save the template and follow these instructions:
1. Use a bone folder to score along the dash and dot-dash lines.
2. Cut along the continuous lines. Notice that all the continuous lines that you cut are perpendicular to the center fold of the card- while the dash and dot-dash lines are parallel to the center fold.
3. Gently pinch the folds that you’ve scored: the dash lines are valley folds, the dot-dash lines are mountain folds.
You can decorate it as you please, just notice that the template is for the paper you will use on the inside of the card. You will need to add another cardstock for the outer side. I chose a very calm palette here, but using a popping color on the back can be really cool – it’ll peep through the steps of the card, emphasizing it’s dimension and depth.
