Cascading Valentine Card....

Today I want to share with you a couple of cards I made recently to send to friends and family.  This fold was originally designed by Sonia Steller on 12x12 cardstck and she called it a Cascade Card.  Then Mississippi McGyver (Marilynn--no last name given--why do some people do that, not give a last name on their blogs???) then designed it to fit on a 8.5" x 11" sheet of cardstock and she called it an Interlocking Folded Card.  Mine is made from a 8.5" x 11" sheet of cardstock and  I am calling mine a Cascading card.  No matter what you call it, it is a neat layout!!  I'll be making more of these.
 Here is the same card in purples and olive using retired Stampin' Up! designer paper.  These went to my sisters and they don't care if the paper is retired---just that it's pretty!  ha!  The card can be created from one sheet of cardstock.  We will be making a card using this layout in  my upcoming classes and then I will post instructions for you.  (Editorial note:  Go to my March 25, 2012, post to see how to make this card.  Complete instructions/layout/measurements there.)
Here are two more cards I made to send to friends and relatives. 
 This one was inspired by Connie Babbert and a card she made. 
OK, I could go on and on sharing Valentine cards.  What a fun time of year.  I hope you and your "love" do something special on Valentines day!  Come back soon!  Smiles, Laura

  1. Lovely! Can't wait for instructions. I saw one of these about a year ago or so, and have wanted to know how to do them. Just about 2 weeks ago I went looking for instrutions, but all I found were in UK measurements, and very sparse directions that my brain just didn't understand. lol So happy you'll be doing a tutorial!


I appreciate all comments you leave. If acceptable, they will be posted to by blog.
