Cascade Fun Fold, Part 1

When looking for ideas for my daughter's 40th birthday card I came across this fun looking fun fold, called a Cascade card.

I first found one by someone in the UK (Storch Designs) but it was in millimeters and I didn't want to mess with converting, it also made an A5 card which is a little larger than our standard A2 card (4-1/4" x 5-1/2"). Then I saw one by France Martin, which I was going to go with, until this one popped up on my YouTube search by Kelly Acheson, but her card was a little larger than our A2 size and she had to make a special envelope. I didn't want to demonstrate or make a card where stampers had to make their own envelope, so I adapted it to one that would fit in our A2 envelopes.

Join me as I put this card together.

Here is the template that I used in the video. You will need two of these to make the card.

A PDF of this template is available in the Digital Downloads of this website.

It's pretty easy to put together, but me mindfully when doing the cutting and using directional paper. You can make this out of 12' x 12" of Designer Series Paper and have enough left over to make two card fronts for other cards. I like using the DSP because it has two different patterns shown that compliment it.

You'll need two pieces of card base that are 5-1/2" x 8" and whatever else you will need to embellish it. There are a lot of cute ideas out there on Pinterest.

I also mention how to make the customized greeting on the first card using the Hex Values and RGB codes for the color to match my card. Here's a link to that video.

In Part 2 of my next video I will show you how to make panels for the Cascade fun fold, when using plain card stock. Make sure to subscribe so you don't miss it!

Thank you for stopping by!
