I love it when I come across something I haven't seen before let alone something I think, "I can make that!" We'll I found this card called a cascade card.I found my inspiration here:
I watched her video and made my own cut file. The concept is really easy; the cut file makes it so simple. I used an regular size piece of cardstock that was printed on one side. The paper is Recollections. I thought I better get a picture of this stage before I went too far in my assembly. Here is the plain side. One has cuts on the top edge the other has cuts on the bottom edge. The folds and cut lines are already in the cut file so the tricky part is already done for you. =D
The two parts slide together. One side slides down over top of the other. The slits will let you know which one is which.
I like the contrast of the printed and plain side of the paper. Here is the basic front view of the card if it is folded flat, but wait, the cool part is how you can display it.
You'll need to add a piece to either the front or the back to stabilize and and hold the two sections together. The sentiment is from the mini thoughts set from www.mythoughtsexactly.co I put mine in the back because I didn't want to mess up my pattern. I really like the alternating zebra print.
My file freebie will be emailed. Some of you I should have an email for. If in doubt, leave it. The freebie will be open through Sunday night May 28th, I have a grad party to put on so I may need a few days to get them all emailed out. I won't get to this until Tuesday. If you need to contact me here is my email address firstname.lastname@example.org. I will send this out as an MTC file unless you let me know you need an SVG file.
I appreciate all the encouraging comments. Thanks for coming by!!
