Welcome to the UKS Spring BlogHop! You may have come to me from
If you lose your way, or have dropped in on me directly and want to follow the hop, you can see the full list with all the links here.
My project for this Blog hop is a Cascading Card.
|oops I seem to have a wonky Lamp Post!|
So if you are ready, here we go..................................
You will need the following items to make this card.
Die Cutting Machine
12" x 8" Card
4 1/2 x 11 1/2 (Base)
Along the 8" edge of your Card mark at 5.5" then along bottom mark at 2.5". Now connect these marks with a pencil.
|Marked and connected|
Now cut along this line. you will end up with two of these.
Now you will need to make two marks on both pieces.
On the 5.5" side from the bottom up mark at 2 7/8" and then on the 2.5" side from the bottom up mark at 1 1/8".
Draw a feint line linking each mark (see photo above).
Place one piece onto your score board (5.5" to your left). Score at the following measurements. 2", 4", 8" and 10". Now along the bottom edge mark at 6" and draw a vertical line.
Repeat this with the second piece of card.
Take one of the pieces of card and cut from the top at the following score lines 2" and 10" Do not cut all the way down, stop when you reach the pencil line in the centre.
Now along the Bottom edge where you have marked at 6" cut along that line till you reach the centre line.
Take the second piece and cut from the Bottom edge at the following 2" and 10", then along the top edge find your 6" line and cut from the top to the centre line.
Now you have cut you slits onto both of your pieces of card you can now link them together.
|First slit linked|
|Second slit linked|
|Third slit linked|
You should now have a card that looks like this
Now to make a base for this card.
Take a piece of card ( I chose to use the same card ) that measures 4 1/4 x 11 1/2. score this on your board at 5 3/4 and fold in half.
Adhere the cascading section to the front of the base and add your choice of decorations.
I do hope you are enjoying the Blog hop so far.
