Hi everyone, today I have these fun Cascade Cards to share.
I really enjoyed creating these bold & bright cards.
I was inspired to make these cards by issue 16 of Make Special Cards Magazine.
Available from Buy Subscriptions as well as WH Smith & Sainsburys.
This magazine is full of lovely papers, die cuts and stamp set as well as tons of inspiration.
It made making these cards very easy.
The ones I’ve made are 5″ x 7″ and fold completely flat.
There is also plenty of room on the back to stamp and write your message.
To make these cards you will need…
2 pieces of 10″ x 7″ coloured cardstock for your main base.
Score along the 10″ side at 2.1/2 & 7.1/2, then flip the card and score at 5″. By flipping the cardstock it will stop any cracking when folding. To this on both pieces.
2 pieces of 2.1/4 x 6.3/4 cardstock for your larger mats.
Mark with a pencil and cut at 5.5/8.
2 pieces of 2″ x 6.1/4 pattern paper to layer on top.
Mark with a pencil and cut at 5.3/8
2 pieces of 2.1/4 x 5.1/2 cardstock for .your next sized mats.
Mark with a pencil and cut at 4.1/2.
2 pieces of 2″ x 5.1/4 pattern paper to layer on top.
Mark with a pencil and cut at 4.1/4.
2 pieces of 2.1/4 x 4.3/8 cardstock for your next sized mats.
Mark with a pencil and cut at 3.3/8.
2 pieces of 2″ x 4″ pattern paper to layer on top.
Mark with a pencil and cut at 3.1/4.
2 pieces of 2.1/4 x 3.1/4 cardstock for your smallest mats.
Mark with a pencil and cut at 2.1/4

Thumbs up on yet another stunning card Sam. I love the way you explain the process of making all your projects. Plus we have the videos where we can go back and follow along as I have done. Have a wonderful day. Thank you also for your creativity & inspiration,
Gorgeous cards Sam, so vibrant, love them xx
Thank you for all your brilliant tutorials. My hit and miss crafting has come on in leaps and bounds since finding you 🙂
I know you’ve already got all your tutorials planned but I was wondering if there’s any chance of doing a Flower Pot Mothers Day card.
I’ve found some but they’re all a bit boring and not that inspirational. They definitely need a ‘Sam Twist’.
Have a lovely day!
Love your cards so different. I do have a question, I noticed you show Catalogs that showcase some of your papers that you use. Do you have to order these catalogs to get the papers or dies? I look at my Joanns but never see this catalog.
Catalogs, are you sure its me, I’ve never shown catalogs. The odd magazine maybe, Making Cards magazine I subscribe to and receive monthly. If you check out moremags.com they have many magazines. Sam 🙂
I like the video you just did on the catalogs..The ones you showed in your recent video we dont have here yet in California yet. I was looking at the number & we are way behind here. I would love to see you show videos on the catalogs so we can see what they look like when you make cards or use the dies/stamps.
