Cascading Card

Hey all!

Did you see Sonia's tutorial on Cascading card? I saw this card a while ago but could not dare to make... Sonia's tutorial made it so easy that I couldn't stop myself... Also, a friend gave a card order on a short notice.. She wanted to thank her parents for everything they do for her... how cute is that... and other requirements were something fancy, something big, something DIFFERENT! but..... it should have some space to write some messages on... So I clubbed both the things and came up with this cascading card with a secret space to write sentiments... ;)


I tweaked the measurements a little bit to make it look bigger... I  made it with a 12x12 inches sheet which gave me 2 pieces of  4 x 12 x 8 inches (L x B x H)... so after folding its height is 8 inches... It helped me saving card stock too..
A side view of the cascading card... I took picture in a hurry so its not showing the true beauty of its folds... It looks amazing in real...


The Family alphabets were part of die-cut pack I bought from Joann. It was there as one word but I cut it into letters so that I can arrange it in a semi circle. The butterfly is from Itsy Bitsy.. they have come up with an amazing collection of embellishments. But quite expensive.. :(


Now, if you untie the ribbon on the side, a mini album will pop up... I have used journal tags from Kaisercraft here..


Supply List:

CS: Fabriano Brustro
PP: Echo Park "Be Mine" courtesy ImaginationsOnline
Die cuts: Kaisercraft' Childs Play from Itsy Bitsy
Flowers, butterflies: Little birdie from Itsy Bitsy
Other embellishments: K & Co Die-Cut Embellishments eco-modern
Tools: Fiskar's SureCut paper trimmer, MS doily border punch

My friend liked it alot! According to her this is my best creation as of now. But then she said the same when I showed him the train card... :P What do you think about it? Please provide me your feedback and suggestions. ... I would love to hear from you...

Thanks for looking!
