This is my OLD FAVORITE...a CASCADING card! This was so fun to make and it was even funner to come up with something new....


Like this!!!! What do you think? I made one without all the flowers...and found that the fold is just as cool without them. I used the PAINTED AUTUMN Designer Series Paper and the PAINTED HARVEST stamp set with matching LEAF PUNCH. Love them both!



Watch my short video here - you'll learn how easy my CASCADING CARD and this cute little mini MILK CARTON are to make:

If the video doesn't play - click HERE to watch it on my blog. 

Here's the back of my card...just a beautiful flower and a greeting that's just as sweet.


Here's a view from the top - cool right?



  • Designer Series Paper 2 @ 6" x 8"
  • Cut both from 3" on the short side to the bottom corner diagonally
  • Score long side at 2", 4" and 6"
  • See video for complete instructions
  • Back panel - Very Vanilla 3-5/8" x 4-5/8"
  • Back panel - Cajun Craze 3-3/4" x 4-3/4"


SQUEAL!!! I love this little mini milk carton - thanks to Sam Hammond for the design on the 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" box - super easy and just the right size for a piece of gourmet chocolate. Click on the video above - it's not just about the card - I show you how to make this little box too!



  • 4-1/2" x 7-1/2"
  • Scored on the long side at 1-1/2", 3", 4-1/2" and 6"
  • Scored on the short side at 1-1/2" and 3"
  • See video for complete instructions
  • Designer Series Paper 4 @ 1-1/4" x 1-1/4"

Beautiful card and project. That DSP was really perfect for it. Thanks for the tutorial! I can't wait to try one!

I just love your projects! That paper is beautiful and I've never made that style of card before although I've seen them before. I will most definitely be trying yours and I love little boxes and have those clips too. Woo hoo!
