thankfully, i've been playing along with kathy racoosin's latest daily marker 30 day coloring challenge. so i had lots of adorable lawn fawn "critters in the sea" all colored up and ready to roll. and yes, i pretty much used ALL of them. because although coloring turns out to be fairly easy in comparison to engineering, it's still somewhat high up on the curve of things that do not come naturally to me. so those babies were gonna get used.
something i highly suggest to anyone who has never made a step card* is: find a really good tutorial, preferably with a template; then practice the scoring, cutting and folding on scrap paper. because if you're the kind of person who is not naturally attracted to the engineering of fancy folds, you will royally mess up the first one. and possibly also the second one. once you've got the hang, g'head and make a "real" one. after that, the process gets easier. well, comparatively.
if you want to see step cards by people who really know how to make step cards, you definitely need to hop over to see what the SOS crew have done this week. because they make it look EASY!!! ♥
*let's face it, i'm probably the only lifelong crafty cardmaker to whom this applies, but let's pretend there's one other person, k? and also that ppl read footnotes! :)
