This one has been sitting in Blogger for a few weeks, waiting for me to get round to adding some text.

It's a cascade card, made to celebrate the 90th birthday of  brass banding gentleman.  

Cascade cards are made with two 'wedge' shaped pieces of card,  linked together so that the card folds flat, but when the folds are pulled open you get the cascade effect which is fun to decorate with die cuts etc

 You can find instructions on the basic Cascade fold card by doing a quick search on the internet so I won't give them here.


The card for the base is blue Bazzill and I found some music notes themed download papers on Etsy which I used to cover the various panels before adding the die cuts.

I've used various die sets from Paper Discovery and DoCrafts (Xcut) for the brass instruments and the other musical notation die cuts.


I had a lot of fun putting this together and it was much easier to do than it looks - which is always a good thing, isn't it!

 That's all for today, thank you so much for visiting, I hope you'll leave a comment, I do love to read them!

 Happy Crafting, Stay Safe,
