Splitcoast Stampers technique challenges are always fun. I'm a bit late for this cascading card challenge from January but I saw so many possibilities for this fancy fold card I had to give it a try. Here's my first...a birthday card for my beautiful daughter April. Photo doesn't really show the cascading effect very well, but it's such a cool look. It folds flat for mailing but accordians out about 4 inches to show off the layers. I backed my card so as to create a pocket for a tag with a gift card for a local nursery (to buy and plant a tree) thus the theme of my card.
I'm definitely going to make more of these...they're deceptively simple, and you get a lot of bang for your buck. Thanks for looking and Happy Birthday to my dear April who made me a mother 38 years ago and has blessed my life in too many ways to count since then!
