Crafter’s Companion 2022 Advent Calendar door 1, a Stepper card

Updated: Jan 13, 2023

It’s that time of year again to start opening the door of the Advent calendar. Each day I will have a post with the card I made with the day’s door. Today I decided to make a stepper card with the contents. The video below shows the unveiling and what I made with it. I won’t say here just yet incase anyone is waiting to see the video to find out what is inside.

Below you will find a template and a SVG to cut out a stepper card. THe template is on a 8 1/2 x 11 paper so you can print it out and start your own Foldapedia. If you have a cutting machine like a Cameo or a Cricut you can up load the SVG to your machine and let it cut the cat for you.
