Kai in the Snow Center Step Card

While blog hopping, I have run into this same fold on several blogs, that pointed me to other blogs but never to a tutorial showing me how to make it.  So after quite a few bad attempts, I was able to figure it out.  It really is a very easy card to make, as easy as the easel card in my opinion.

The center panel is taller and the 2 side panels step back.  Pretty cool design, sadly I don't know who to credit with its creation.  I started the card by sizing and printing Mo Manning's Kai in the Snow onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Kai - E000
Snowsuit - B00, B04
Hat & Scarf - R29, YG93
Gloves - YG93
Boots - C2

I used Our Craft Lounge Sparkly Stuff on the pom-poms and a Snow Writer Pen on the snow flakes and ground snow.  The circle die is from Nellie Snellen, DP is My Mind's Eye.  The sentiment is from an old See-D's stamp set, the tag is a McGill punch.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

I have created a template for you to use should you want to make one of these cards.  Do the 2 cuts first then use the cut lines as guidelines for your scores.  Have fun with it.

Gorgeous card Sandy! I wish I had more time for crafting, but at the moment I have to work 4 days a week instead of 1,5 day! Hope my co-workers will be better soon!

Hugs and have a nice weekend,
