The third card from my Fun & Fancy Folds class was a Sidestair card.  I tried to keep it CAS, but I did get a little carried away.  Jenni did stop me from doing taller popped out accents on the second stair that I would have done otherwise though.  :)  I did manage to stick to only one stamp set though!  See a version at the end of the post that I did for my nephew with a few changes/additions.  A FREE tutorial and template follow the recipe.  Enjoy!

Note:  If following the template above, solid lines are cut lines and dotted lines are score/fold lines.
1. With your 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" card base in the portrait position, line up the cardstock at the 2" mark, and cut a line from 2 1/8” to 7 1/2”.

2. Turn your cardstock to the landscape position with cut line toward the bottom and right. Score from the top down to the cut line at 2-1/8”, 5-3/8”, 6-1/2” and 7-1/2”.  Also score at 4-1/4” from the top all the way to the bottom.

3. Using your template above as a guide, you will fold the 2” side in a mountain fold on the left side. On the right side you will use alternating folds of mountain and valley as shown in the template and the picture below.

4. Stamp and embellish your card as desired.

Here's a slightly different version I did for my nephew Dylan.  His name is in the Rough Type stamp set from the Summer Mini:
