Cascading card

Hi Everyone,
It's Barbara here. WOW, March has arrived and.boy I love March because there are a few great things that happen this month.  Spring starts, St. Patrick's Day is celebrated and.... it's Nat'l Craft Month. Please try to stop in to check on all the creative projects presented by the super talented design team members throughout the month.

Let me share my project with you.

I decided to make a cascade card. I recently received a new stamp set from Unity and decided I would incorporate some of those stamped images in this card. These cards are really not hard to make, you just don't want to get sidetracked in the middle of measuring and cutting. The cascade card incorporates some really cool folds and I think that is what make this card so intriguing.

 Here is a front shot 

 Here is more of an overhead shot

Check out this close up of the double bow I added to the front of this card.

The Craft-Dee BowZ tool makes it so easy to make a double bow.Well I also think it makes it easy to make any style of bow. If you are bow challenged then you definitely want to add this tool to your arsenal

Did you notice the smaller bow I added to the jar lid. Made that jar look too cute.

These style of cards are hard to photograph, I think.So I hope you are able to check out the card and my 2 bows.

Well thanks for stopping in today and I will be back soon.

Wow, Barbara, a beautiful card! Love your color choices, and the ribbon around the bottle neck. Then a matching mega bow toward the base. It lends a little elegance in a cute, country-style card. Such pretty design elements! huggers, de

Terrific card, Barb! Love what you did with the bows -- not one, but two! Great idea! And I, too will have to attempt one of these cascading cards.

What a fantastic card. Your design is beautiful! It looks to be too complicated for me though. I am a CAS type of card maker. But I admire those who do this type of card creations and I know that whoever receives one is going to be thrilled.

Those sparkly eggs sure make your card "pop"!
