My mom’s birthday was yesterday, and it was a pretty good big one. I wanted to make her a spectacular card to wish her happy birthday, so I decided to make one of those Cascading Cards that I have seen floating around online lately. I found a great tutorial over at Jan Farring’s blog. These cards are great because they fold down flat and mail in a regular envelope, but open up into a real WOW! Here is the card I made for my mom, opened up in all of it is glory.
Stamps: Perfect Punches, Flight of the Butterfly, Baroque Motifs
Ink: Regal Rose, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive
Paper: Regal Rose, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Whisper White
Other: Butterfly Punch, Extra Large Oval Punch, Butterfly Punch, Old Olive Dotted Scallop Ribbon, Labels Collection Framelits, Designer Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Simply Scored
So you can get a better idea of how this card works, I want to show you the top view as well.
And this is what it looks like all folded down.
Remember, Flight of the Butterfly, Baroque Motifs, and the Butterfly Punch are all retiring at the end of May. Happy birthday, Mom! I hope you had a great day!
