Yesterday’s new tutorial on Splitcoaststampers was for the Concertina or Cascading Card. Cherie Franklin is the author, I shot the video.  For my sample my main image is from MFT’s darling Snow Angel stamp set. The image was stamped in  Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on  Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was colored with Copic Markers (Green: YG01, YG03, YG17    Red: R20, R22, R24, R29   Fur: E41, E42, E43    Snow: B0000, B000   Ear/Nose: R20, E40)  and cut out.

It was also stamped in My Mind’s Eye Winter Wonderland paper (red paper) and Carta Bella Merry & Bright patterned paper. The paper pieces were shaded with Copics, cut out, run through my Xyron and adhered to the cardstock image.

Winter Wonderland patterned paper was used to decorate the card sides.  The top corners were rounded and the top of the slanted pieces were topped with Solar White cardstock that was cut with Icicle Border Die-namics die.  The two larger Layered Label dies were used to create layers to place my image on.

More white cardstock was cut with the two smaller dies from Let it Snowflake die-namic dies, stacked and topped with a rhinestone from a Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones.  Last I stamped a sentiment from Snow Angel on a piece of cardstock with a sentiment strip die.

Here is a video for the visual learner:
