Daisy Delight cascade card and instructions

Firstly I must apologise for not blogging for the last 3 days. No excuses, sorry.

Today I am starting with makes using products from the new catalogue. Its only 2 weeks away so exciting times. I have had a number of requests for instructions for this cascade card so it seemed ideal to start with the Daisy Delight stamp set.

Two sheets of A4 card, landscape, measure 6" up one side and 3" up the other, join marks. Repeat on the second piece of card.
Then mark 3" and 11/2" up the ends and join. Repeat on second piece of card.

Ensure your horizontal lines slope from left to right then starting on the left mark vertical lines at 2" intervals.

Cut along the top  sloping line!

Working left to right again cut up the first line to the central horizontal, score and valley fold the second line. Cut up the third line, score and fold the fourth, cut up the fifth to the central line. On the second piece of card cut down from the top to the central line, score and fold the second line, cut down the third line, score and fold the fourth and cut down the final line to the central horizontal line.  As below


The two pieces of card then slot together







 I have stamped both sides of mine with hardwood and decorated with punched Daisies and also used the retiring Blossom Bunch punch to make the little daisies.  Decorate as you  wish. The lines can be rubbed out before stamping. Once you have made one you won't need to draw all the lines in!
