Cooking With Cricut- No Red or No Green

Welcome to Cooking With Cricut Challenge #8
No Red or No Green

It is common to see a lot of Red and Green at Christmas time.  
This week, your challenge is to use one or the other, but not both.

As you can see, I decided to use RED:)
I decided to make a side step card and decorate it with Santa!
Side step cards are fun and easy to make.

Directions: Side step card frame
1.  Start with 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 card stock
2.  Score at 4 1/4
3.  Position at 3 1/2 lengthwise
4.  Cut from 1 1/4 to 6 1/4
5.  Score from edge of paper to cut at 1 1/4, 2 1/4, 3 1/4, and 6 1/4
6.  Use a bone folder to fold all score lines
7.  Decorate

This card will fit in a standard envelope.
