I had never made a step card before, and thanks to one of my teamies, Anne-Marie, I learned a very easy and quick method for creating this cute and different little card. It is so easy! Simply fold your card base in half (as normal), but then fold the front and back in half again. Your card should then look like this ^^.
I wasn't quite sure if I had any patriotic paper in my stash, but I was pleased to find a DCWV pad that had a fantastic patriotic theme. The page consisted of different strips of design -- perfect for the little step card. I cut three of the strips to fit the panels of my card, and adhered them to the front, the valley behind the front and the back mountain. (I need to take a picture of my card from the side so you can see the total design better. I'll try to do that and add it to this post.)
