Sideways Step Card

Hi Everyone

I am back with some dimensions for the card that I presented in my last post.I still don't know what it is called, I have looked and looked so I am going to name it the sideways step card. LOL  It reminds me of the center step cards on its side, with some modifications of course.LOL

This is going to be a long post as I took pictures and added labels to aid you in making this cool card.I hope my visuals are not confusing.

This card will fold flat into a 5" x 7" card and should fit right into an envelope. Open, the card stands on its own and should display nicely.

You will need to start off with a 7 1/2" X 7" panel, (I used my MS score tool to make my score lines).
 Dotted lines are your score lines

Both cut lines are cut starting at 1 1/4" in  from the sides and run parallel to the 7 1/2" side.
The cut lines start 1 1/4" from the top and the bottom edges.(Cut lines are highlighted in red for a better visual image)

Now you will want to add the score lines
With the 7 1/2" side across the top of your score tool, start on the left side of the card, score from the top cut line to the bottom cut line.
The next score line will be scored 1 1/4" over from the 1st score line again scoring from the top cut line to the bottom cut line.

Next you will score the smaller lines at the other end of the cut lines.
Score from the top edge to the end of the card to the top cut line on the other end.
The bottom score line will start at the end of the bottom cut line and score down to the edge of the card.

The 2nd small score line will be 1 1/4" left of the 1st small score line. 
Again starting at the top of the card scoring down to the cut line.
The 2nd bottom score line will start 1 1/4" left of the 1st score line and score down to the edge of the card.

All of the cuts and scores are done, now let me show the folds

Now its time to decorate this creative folded card.

The dimensions I've given above will allow the card to fit into a envelope for a 5"X7" card

Here is my finished card. 

Here are a few different views.
