We all love interactive and kinetic cards! Introducing the Christmas Cascade Collection!

This holiday collection allows you to make a Cascading Card inside of a Shadowbox Frame, mounted on a card base or unmounted. Don’t worry, these motifs make great conventional cards as well.

We listened to you, and we heard loud and clear that our community loves dynamic and purposeful cards. In previous collections we gave you 3D Vignettes in a Christmas way.  Now we’ve found a way to merge a Collection favorite, Shadowbox Vignettes, in a new format.   

Becca Feeken with Amazing Paper Grace sent me these fabulous dies to start my Christmas card making!

Our Creative Team is sharing our makes from the Christmas Cascade Collection.  Let’s take a second to sort this out…

What’s a Christmas Cascade?

Amazing Paper Grace takes a spin on Christmas by building a new collection around something you already have in your stash – the Shadowbox Dies.  Becca loves building upon what you already have and making it new again. 

Christmas Cascade is made up of sets of 3-inch motif dies where each set has 3 motifs.  That’s enough for each leaf of your waterfall but again, you could make them the center of your A2 or your A7 card. These, paired with the Waterfall base will allow you to use any dies to make your next Waterfall Card.

The Inspiration Behind Christmas Cascade

The inspiration for Christmas Cascade was to produce a motif to use from an enclosure card all the way up to full A7 card with background layers.  This “cardlet” size has been a favorite in our stash because the elements can easily transition into all of the Amazing Paper Grace Collections and to all size cards.  Hint:  This is not the last time you will see “Cardlets”

Each of our Creative Team members will show you how to make a Christmas Cascade Card that is a waterfall card and a Christmas Cascade Card that is a flat card.

My Waterfall Card

First up is my Waterfall Card using Amazing Paper Grace S5-429 Snowflake Splendor by Spellbinders.

Here is what the dies look like:

I’m using a joy fold card base to hold the waterfall piece. You flip open the card and pull the tab, and each snowflake lifts off and flips to the side. It’s super fun, and really easy to make with the dies in the set. Visit my Instagram page to see my quick video showing how the card works! Then you can see every else’s with the list in the post!

Designer Tip:  Add depth and dimension to your die cuts by adding a shadow in a contrasting color. Just adhere the die cuts slightly offset, as I have done with the snowflakes.

Next I have a card and simple ornament or small gift box using Amazing Paper Grace S5-429 Snowflake Splendor by Spellbinders. On both cards I used S4-1051 Oval Coronet in white to add some interest to the white backgrounds.
