Day 20!! We’re in the home stretch now. If you’ve seen Slimline Cards or Cascade Cards and loved them, then you’re in for a real treat with this Slimline Cascade Card! Honestly, I think I’m obsessed with this card style and want to make more!
Slimline Cascade Card
Do you ever just fall down the YouTube rabbit hole and get so deep that you can’t see the way out? Yes?!? Well, don’t worry, that happens to me ALL the time!! lol I fell down the hole pretty deep last week while I was ‘resting’ as per the Doctor’s orders, and I came across a gal “Sam Calcott”. She isn’t a demo, nor does she use any Stampin’ Up! Stuff (ok, well, maybe a couple of videos, in the beginning, 4+ years ago – but nothing anymore) BUT!!! She makes stunning fancy fold cards! A lot of her cards are very very involved, but I like it, and I like the challenge so I saved a lot of her videos. However, this particular card is pretty easy once you get the hang of it. So, without further ado, let’s get into this!
NOTE: I’ll post the other Slimline Cascade (Snail Mail) Card I showed you once the sun comes out and I can take some photos 🙂

Slimline Cascade Card
Cutting your cardstock:
- Cut a piece of white cardstock to 10-1/2 X 8. Score at 3-1/2 and 7″
- Cut all mats on colored cardstock (everything I used is listed below)
- Panel Measurements:
- Large Mat (Back Panel) 3-1/4 X 7-5/8
- Medium Mat (Middle Panel) 3-1/4 X 6-1/8
- Small Mat (Front Panel) 3-1/4 X 4-5/8
- Large DSP panel (Back Panel) 3 X 7-3/8
- Medium DSP (Middle Panel) 3 X 5-7/8
- Small Mat (Front Panel) 3 X 4-3/8
- Insert (Behind Middle Panel) 3-1/4 X 6-1/8
Creating the Angles:
- For the card itself, make a mark 3-1/2″ UP from the bottom of the card. This is the mark you will line up with the opposite top corner to cut your angle.
- Which side to mark your panels on; Large on the right, medium on the left, and small on the right.
- The sentiment panel will be marked on the left side.
- Make a mark 1-3/8″ down from the top corner. On the left or right depending on which panel. Line the mark up with the opposite corner that you measured from and cut an angle.
- If you’re having trouble, refer back to the video or the photos below.
Bits & Bobs, Assembly & Final Touches:
- Now it’s time to decide on your card elements. I’ve taken a photo of all the elements I used.
- Place everything where you want it with glue and/or dimensional. Add some sparkle with Stickles and a few gems, sequins or rhinestones.
- The key is to just have fun! Try a few different cards to experiment with the different possibilities.
