This is a card a did last week and I promised I would post the cutting directions so if you did the free make and take demo at Your Scrapbook Superstore or not I hope you will enjoy this card.
Card size 4 1/4 X 11
With a paper trimmer line cardstock up so that the edge of the card is at 1" mark. Position the cutting blade at 1" from bottom and cut from 1" to 6.5". (this will make a 5.5" cut line)
Within that 1" score at 1", 2", and 6.5".
Score again at 5.5" from the base of the card just next to cut line. (you will have a 1" cut line about this)
Folds from bottom of card is mountain, valley, mountain, mountain.
The card was then colored with Copic Markers and assembled. We then added Flower Soft to give it texture.
I hope your will try this step card.

Well I have returned from Cincinnati and the Stampaway USA convention as well as teaching my stampscapes classes in Centerville, Ohio at Marco's Paper. I had a wonderful time teaching and learning. Best convention yet! It was a pleasure to teach and work with the folks at Marco's and I hope to return in the spring of 2013. As for my classes they were all great except one. I will just say the teachers had no respect for the people they were teaching! I took Tim Holtz class and made a beautiful journal using techniques I already knew and watched him sign autographs. I did not get his autograph, but I can now say I have taken his class! Northwoods Men's card class was great as always. Pat is a very good teacher! Stamp the Night Away was a lot of fun. Folded card class was great. Last but not least Embellishing solid stamps was really good. Watercolor class was very bad and I will leave it at that!!! If you have never been to Stampaway I would like to encourage you to attend. This was my 15th Stampaway convention and God willing I will go back next year. I am including some pictures I took at Marco's Paper and at the convention and I hope you enjoy them.

These three pictures are from my class at Marco's
