Cascading Card Tutorial
This is a special card for my mum who loves flowers so added punchcraft and quilled flowers to the layers of my cascading card.
The white daisies were a gift from my blogger pal Jovita.The roses are punchcraft roses made using a 6 petal punch.The pink buds are quilled coils and the tiny roses are ribbon roses.
How to make a Cascading Card.
I made this cascading card using a Card template which was so generously shared by Penny .Penny's original template is a gem but looks scary and complicated until you break it down to little steps! So just to make things easier, sharing some step by step instructions on how I made Susie Prendergast's Cascading Card.
Materials Required to make a cascading card
Card stock : 2 pieces measuring 5.5 x 12 inches - use fairly thick sturdy card if you want to add lots of embellishments like I did.
Scoring tool- if you dont have one use a blunt knife or dry pen.
Make the Panels of your Cascading Card
|Cascading card tutorial|
Mark 3 inches down one side of the card stock as shown. Cut off the white triangle you get as shown in the cascading card template.Do this for the other piece of 5.5 x 12 inch card too to get the panels of your cascading card.
Mark the Panels
The Cascading card is just 2 accordion folded cards interlocked together by slots.To help you know where to make your slots you can mark both your panels as shown.If you are using a scale mark the midpoint of 2 sides of your panel as shown. Measure 2 3/4 inch on the taller side and 1 1/4 inch on the shorter side.Join with a pencil line.

Your Cascading card panels are mirror images and shown below is how the panels will look marked.
|Cascading card template|
Make the slots:If you use a score pal it is super easy to make your slots.Drop down score lines to meet the pencil line marked earlier. The slots will be at 2 , 6 and 10 inch marks as shown.

Susan figuring out how to make the card was difficult but once you work it out its so easy-- I made a 2nd cascading card without decorating it just to see how it would be and it was in fact easy . Forget the flowers-- these were made painstakingly over several weeks and all thrown into this card !Delete

Stunning card and tutorial Sonia.. Another on my to do list..LozReplyDelete
another magical work by you!ReplyDelete
Wowwwwwww...:) Sonia, she is really lucky person...ReplyDelete
Its such a lovely card...:)
I have looked into the problem. And on my computer there is no problem detected. I could publish a comment on my blog without any problem. I did this via google chrome and via firefox.
My son looked into it and he saw there is a problem with blogger itself. And therefor he can't do anything about it.
I also scanned my computer for any virus, but I have non virus on my computer.
So, it is a mystery and I hope it will be over soon. Please try again later to comment on my work.
Karin its the same status. I have taken a screenshot and emailed you . The message shows the link to Katrin-hobby .blogspot is the malware link.I have not been able to visit Katrin too for some time.Delete
