Cinderella Cascade Slide Together Card

 I love the story of Cinderella and this card depicts all of the highlights of the story.  Two pieces of metallic card stock are slid together and folded to make the zig-zig in this card.  The card lies flat for mailing. One side of the scene shows Cinderella arriving at the palace in a coach.  Cinderella is standing in the doorway and looking at the festivities above. The opposite side of the card shows the clock at midnight with the prince in the doorway.  Cinderella is scurrying away with her slipper on the stairway.  Her coach has turned into a pumpkin and the horse has turned into a mouse by the gate.

Cinderella scurrying away at the stroke of midnight.

I recommend using a new mat and blade to cut this design.  It is very hard to cut the details of the revelers at the ball with a dull blade. I used Neenah metallic card stock.

Here is the PDF.

Here is the .Studio file.

 Slide the two tabs together as shown.

 Fold the two sides inward and then slide the next two tabs together to form a zig zag pattern.

 Notice that the pieces do not align that well.

Use Glue dots that have been rolled into little pieces to align the tops of the castle points and the bottom of the castle floor.

I also used a larger piece of rolled up Glue Dots to adhere Cinderella to the bottom of the castle floor. 

I used Aleene's glue to glue the tab of the coach to the castle wall.

I glued the gates to the back of the wall and added the crowns to the gates.  The pumpkin and mouse were glued to the gate.  The shoe and Cinderella were glued to the stairs.
