Cascading Butterfly Tower Twofer

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Tower cards are very popular right now, so during last weekend's rare venture to my craft desk, I had to give them a try.   The style is so easy and versatile and I can see me creating a lot of them.

Both cards are pretty much mirror images of each other using one of my favorite die sets and I love them both, but have you got a favorite?

Card: Unbranded white and SU's Peekaboo Peach (yep, I wrongly said it was Perfect Peach last week... oops!)
Tools and embellishments: Sue Wilson for CE Cascading Butterflies and CE pearls

  1. These are fabulous, I havent seen these before, did you have a tutorial u followed?
    Two great cards, love the colours.

    1. Yes, Kate. I found a tutorial on YouTube. For these 2 I started with a 7" x 9" piece of card and scored at 1", 2" and 3" on the long side. Turn it 180 degrees and repeat, then fold the middle scorelines back and mark every 1/2" to the center scoreline before cutting them to create the towers. Sounds a lot more complicated than it is

  2. Beautiful card, love these colours too!
