A Cascading Card Friends

Hello Everyone,

Today I’d like to share this bright and flower card for a friend
that cascades as it opens!

The template was provided to me by one of my Stampin’ Up colleagues – thank you Anne! I love how simple this card was. Just two sections of card slotting together with coordinating folds. Here it is again to give you a better idea of how it collapses flat and cascades when it is open.

The colours are all In Colours from 2012-2013. The paper is left-overs from a recent Sale-A-Bration catalogue and I’ve used two stamp sets that would be unlikely to use together. The little girls are from The Nicest Things which is great for colouring in with your Stampin’ Write markers, and the Friends and F are from Vintage Vogue. (yes I’m addicted to Vintage Vogue!) Here’s a close up of them for you…

All in all this card was perfect to share at Card Makin Mamas this week for their Spring Photo Challenge. Check out this cake – the layers remind me of my card – cascading! The colours I used are almost right, but it the shape of the cake more than anything that was inspiring for me.

Hope you like it!

I’ll be back in a couple of days with some gorgeous little treat boxes that I’ve been making to use for presents. I’m sure you’ll love them.

Have a great day…
