CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Let’s Interact

  1. Tri-fold Cascading Card  
    Finished size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
    Welcome to CTMH Technique blog. If you are coming from Catherine Nowak  them you are on the right track. Here is a cute  folding card technique using the "Penelope"complements. The instructions and measurements are below.


    I used a solid color cardstock to create the folding cascade.This way I can mix the pattern paper design at different levels. (Using a two sided printed cardstock will simplify the process). Once the inside panels are decorated, add the embellishments. Make sure when adding the embellishment that they are not too high or it wont fit in the envelope.
     Have fum adding embellishments! 
    Now hop on toJenifer Benner blog and check out what she has to show you.
