Cascading Card and Gift box

Cascading Card
Cascading cards look so complicated but are rather easy to make! [Link to cascading card tutorial].
Cascading Card
It is funny how we bloggers inspire each other. My blogger pal Lisa Jane shared a gorgeous cascading card which she linked to me and I love her card so much that I in turn used her MS punches idea on the layers of the cascading card.

I kept the side panels simple with flower stickers in colors to match the rest of the cascade card.

Dangled a clover -heart charm [for good luck!] in the center of my cascading card.I used  the same gorgeous baby theme stickers [which my daughter won from Khalindi] to make a gift box.
Handmade Box
I had an absolute blast making these paper boxes.

The box lid is attached to the lower part and opens in the style of a hinged box.

    1. Thank You Lisa! Lisa the crazy punch works well on thick card stock but thin pattern paper or normal paper makes it rebel!
