June Blog hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars Blog Hop!
We are happy you could join us each month to see our monthly hop.  So hop from one blog to the next until you get back to here. You will find the next person to hop to at the bottom of each post, her name will be highlighted.  

This month I would like to share with you a cascading card I made for our friends 50th Wedding Anniversary. 

I used White daisy cardstock and gold for the "50".  I cut two pcs of 5 1/2 x 12 on an angle. Directions are below.

Directions:  Cut 2--- 12" pcs of cardstock at 5 1/2" on one end and 2 1/2" on the other end. One side will be the straight edge.  Score at 2", 4" 8" 10"  on the 6" just make a pencil mark. At the 5 1/2" end  Find the center 2 3/4" and at the other end the center will be 1 1/4" , draw a pencil line down  of the long strip, center.. On one strip cut score line at 2" 10" to the center pencil line.  On the other strip, cut opposite (from the other side) at 2" 10"   At the 6"  mark cut to center pencil mark on the opposite side. So one pc you would cut from the top  at 2" 10" to center line and on the other strip you would cut from the bottom at 2" and 10".  Then slide the 2 pcs together with the tallest at the back.  

You can make this for any occasion and use any Cricut cuts.  These are the cuts I used:
