Cascade card

Hello Fellow Crafters, 

I am here this Monday evening sharing a Cascade card I made. It was so much fun...not to mention a little confusing on my part on embossing the correct sides facing out. I am a Design Team Member for Meet at the Scrappers Corner and we have a Facebook page that we require you to be a Member of  as one of the main rules to enter your paper projects into our Monthly Challenge. Here is the Meet at the Scrappers Corner Facebook link everyone is welcome to join.  All that said to share this, we have a fun and friendly group of members along with an open Tutorial File where we all share new creative ideas for paper project and more.  I love visiting it now and then to pick up a new card technique.  And this is where I got the tutorial for the Cascade card I am sharing with you today. I have been eye-balling this card for awhile and finally found the right tutorial in the Meet at the Scrapper Corner Tutorial File. I have seen several but this one is the easiest and best with details.  Here it is available through Youtube by the gracious crafter Frances Martin known as Frenchie's Videos.  She gave me directions I followed and added all my special design touches to fancy it up to my liking.
I decorated my panels by first embossing with an Anna Griffin Christmas folder called Sleigh Bells then distressed with black and gold ink. Placing Cottage Cutz - Woodland Pine Trees glittered with Martha Stewart Sugar Cube glitter flakes...Die-namites - Pine Bough dipped in Martha Stewart Holiday glitter...Impression Obession Snowflakes dies covered with Stickles/Diamond.
 And my fabulous fun My Besties digital image by Sherri Baldy is Winter Wonderland Blushing that I manually made into a 3D image using her bust portion.  I literally printed her 5 times and had fun coloring each section to get this 3D effect. It was not as hard as I first thought but quite fun. I colored her with a combination of Spectrum Noir and my Derwent and Faber-Castell pencils.

 I have been wanting to do this and am real happy I did and love the outcome. I featured this precious Winter Wonderland Blushing digital image on a Spellbinders Nestabilities Lacey Circles to encase her in. I cut a couple extra along with using the Classic Scalloped Circles Large to cut the center out so my image could look like she was posing. I used Stickles/Diamond on the top Lacey Circles layer.
Once again...I really enjoyed making this Cascade Card with the help of Frenchy's Videos and Meet at the Scrappers Corner Facebook page. I invite you to join us as a friendly crafty group. We are small and growing. 

And here a Cascade Card by Me.

This looks more beautiful every time I look at it. I love everything about it.
I would have to say it is the most gorgeous Cascade Card I have ever seen indeed. I adore how you have added so much detail with embossing and inking, this really sets the card off even more.
Congratulations on this wonderful tutorial, I thoroughly enjoyed reading.
Your Cascade Card is a Winner !!!
Scrappy Hugs, Annette xx
