Introducing Amazing Paper Grace Christmas Cascade Collection

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 lovely dies to start my Christmas Card making!


Hi there, today 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" 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 Projects For Today

First up is my Waterfall Card using S6-166 Cascade Card Base (Waterfall), S2-302 Adjustable Shadowbox Frame with 1/2” Border and S5-430 Holiday Word Blocks.


Here is what the dies look like: 

 I  made a mini album with a "shadowbox" cover in the first frame, when you open it you can see the cascade inside the second frame with space to add some photos.


I have a process video to show you how I made this project 😊 

Second up is my Flat Card using Amazing Paper Grace 
 S6-166 Cascade Card Base (Waterfall) and S5-430 Holiday Word Blocks 

Here is the Spellbinders video showing amazing new samples as well as a tutorial showing you how to put the Cascade Card together:
