Hi Everyone,
It's Barbara here. WOW,  March has arrived.... and.I love March because a few great things happen this month.  Spring starts, St. Patrick's Day is celebrated and.... it's Nat'l Craft Month. Please try to stop in to check on all the creative projects presented by the super talented design team members throughout the month.

Let me share my project with you.

I decided to make a cascade card. I recently received a new stamp set from Unity and decided I would incorporate some of those stamped images in this card. These cards are really not hard to make, you just don't want to get sidetracked in the middle of measuring and cutting. The cascade card incorporates some really cool folds and I think that is what make this card so intriguing.

 Here is a front shot 

 Here is more of an overhead shot

Check out this close up of the double bow I added to the front of this card.

The Craft-Dee BowZ tool makes it so easy to make a double bow.Well,  I also think it makes it easy to make any style of bow. If you are bow challenged then you definitely want to add this tool to your arsenal.

Did you notice the smaller bow I added to the jar lid. Made that jar look too cute.

These style of cards are hard to photograph, I think.So I hope you are able to check out the card and my 2 bows.

Thanks for stopping in today and next week we will have another fabulous project to share with you.

See you soon,

Wow, Barbara, a beautiful card! Love your color choices, and the ribbon around the bottle neck. Then a matching mega bow toward the base. It lends a little elegance in a cute, country-style card. Such pretty design elements! huggers, de

Yikes! Talk about a card with interest! This is great Barb! Love all the details you've put into this cascading card. And I agree, adding that cute little bow to the cap of the bottle to complement the one in the corner, just tied (had to say it) it all in a neat package. Fun, fun card! on Cascading
