Thursday Tutorial- Side step or stair step card

Hello everyone it is time for another Thursday Tutorial here at FCCB.
This week the challenge is #82 – Purple People Eater
Create a project with the color purple AND a monster or bug on it.
Boy does that bring back memories of teaching first grade and singing the One Eyed Purple People Eater Song. So for the tutorial this week I wanted to share several sources for making a side step or stair step card. These cards look so complicated but are really simple. Once you have the score and cut pattern you can use these for any special occasion and decorate with any die cuts. So since we are all in the purple people eater mood I made my own card with a 3 eyed monster from Mini Monsters. You can make these awesome side step cards with a piece of 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 paper.
I followed the written tutorial I found here
Check out Renee's beautiful Fall Card.

There is also a wonderful picture tutorial and video at
Here is my card using Mini Monsters, and Doodle Charms
The card neatly folds up into an A2 size card.
Hope you find the link to these tutorials helpful. I know I for one will be making more of these cards.
Hope to see your Purple Eater Projects this week for the challenge. Happy craftin!
