Waterfall card

I have seen these but this was another technique that I just hadn't got around to trying, so when we were challenged to do it in my stamp group I was excited to give it a try.  I think the hardest part for me was finding stamps that would be the correct size to use, I ended up just using bits of these stamps to make it work. HERE is the video I used to for dimensions. Once again I stamped my images onto patterned paper, I am determined to get my papers used :)






Inkadinkado -- Utopiary stamp set
Stamps of Life -- Standup 4 sentiments
Crate Paper -- DIY shop paper
Spellbinders -- Square die
Fiskars - square punch
EK Success - Circle punch
Ribbon

My friend opened it in front of me so I was able to let her know to pull down on the ribbon, but you may want to put a note inside your envelope if you were sending it through the mail. Or you can stamp or write pull at the bottom, but I liked the look of the ribbon :)

Thanks so much again for taking the time to stop by,

Connie

Would you believe I've never made a waterfall card, Connie? I love the way they look, and how fun it is to have the interactive elements on a card. Yours is especially love in the pink theme, with the ribbon tied to the tag, making it easier to pull down. Cute little matching brads, and the stamped images all make a whimsical flavor. It's lovely, Connie! xx

I've made several of them and find the putting it together tricky because it has to go one in such a way that the tab is in the right position. Not sure if you were challenged too. This is very beautiful. Love the way you put your sentiment in the pull down tab.

Connie, wow! That is so fancy! I have never made one like that before. I did post a card today but it is relatively simple. xo

I used to see these cards when I first started card making years ago, so it's lovely to see your pretty card, I have never attempted to make one, so well done to you.

Well, you're way ahead of me as I've never made a waterfall card, but then, there are lots of things I haven't done yet. I'm pretty run of the mill with my card making, I think. Your stamps and papers worked out very well. It sure is pretty! I, too, am plugging away at my papers, sigh...
