Cascade Card Tutorial

Tuesday is here again and for today's post I have a Cascade Card Tutorial.  I originally saw this tutorial on Beccy's Place.  It is a rather unique shape and does make a rather nice card if you are looking for something different.

Outside of Card

Inside of Card

Supplies used:

Step 1:  Take a 12" x 12" piece of cardstock and cut it to be 6" x 12". 

Step 2:  Starting from the left hand side and on the long side score at 2", 4", 8" and 10".  Fold in along the scorelines as mountain, valley, valley and mountain.

Step 3:  Measure 2" down from the top left hand corner of the card.  Draw a line from the mark that was just made to the top of the 4" score line.  Do the same on the right hand side using the top of the 8" scoreline.  Cut along both of these lines.  Keep both pieces.

Step 4:  Design Paper Preparation.  Whatever design paper you decide to use, cut 1 piece to be 5 3/4" x 3 3/4".  This is to be used for the inside middle part of the card.  Cut 4 pieces of paper to be 5 3/4" x 1 3/4".  Use the triangular off cuts to get the correct angles for the strips and make sure that you trim the panels in the right direction

The image Penquin Love, was coloured with Copic Markers.  Polar White Flower Soft was used on the trim of the hats.  The image was then fuzzy cut and mounted to the middle panel.  The sentiment was added to the left front panel.  Faux Snow was also added to the middle panel.

Until next time, keep crafting.
