Block / Stair Step Card...Pt1

Afternoon blog friends, today l have a card that's a little different to share. It was inspired by the ever so talented Deb Valder.
I've made 2 of these, the second I'll be sharing in a another post very shortly. Along with a link to Deb's fab video, where she gives you the measurements she used.
I decided to alter the measurements to suit our (AU) cardstock, this allows you to get 2 cards from one piece of A4, but is slightly smaller overall, but not much really once it is put together. 
It will also fit into our standard envelopes when pushed flat, which you can see in the last pic.

If you scroll to the bottom of this post l have provided the measurements l used to create this one....

These are just the measurements for A4 cardstock, you will need to click on the link provided in the following post and watch Deb's video for instructions on how she made it.

BASE CARD: 4 1/8” x 11 5/8”  Scored at 1 3/8”, 2 6/8”, 4 1/8”, 5 1/2”, 67/8”, 8 1/4”,  9 5/8” & 11"
ROTATE 180 degrees and score on the short side at 1 3/8” and 2 3/4”
HINGE: Surplus skinny strip 5/8" from the A4 length, folded to create flap (replaces the extra strip Deb uses)
BLOCK LAYERS:  1 ¼” squares and 1” squares.
