Cascade Card

I came across a wonderful tutorial for a cascade card (thank you Jacqueline) which I just had to have a go at.  Once I had studied the measurements and cuts properly it fitted together perfectly.  I decorated the card firstly by embossing one piece with a Cuttlebug folder and highlighted the raised pattern with pink aqua and blue cat's eye inks and the second piece I left flat but inked with the same colours.  I felt that the flat surface next to the embossed one gave it more detail, if that makes sense.  Some pieces of lace along the top edges to give it strength and some Cuttlebug embossed flowers cut out and inked and coated with decoupage medium to give them a bit of strength were slotted into the pockets of the constructed card.  You can find the construction details on Jacqueline's blog here

It's always nice to see what other people make with my tutorials - your card is stunning and I love how you put one section through your Cuttlebug - it's a great idea and one I shall be trying out for myself soon - Jacqueline xx
