The bundle I chose to use for this card is shown below. Aren’t these little gnomes just so cute?! I tried to pick a favorite gnome, but I just can’t do it – I love them all.
Waterfall Card Materials List
Here is what you’ll need to create one of these cards:
5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ card base, scored at 4 1/4″
4″ x 5 1/4″ designer paper
4″ x 5 1/4″ white cardstock to layer behind designer paper (optional)
2″ x 9″ cardstock, scored at 4 3/4″, 5 1/2″, 6 1/4″, and 7″
3/4″ x 4″ cardstock
4 – 2″ x 2″ cardstock
4 – 1 7/8″ x 1 7/8″ white cardstock
How To Create A Waterfall Card – Step By Step
Using the 2″ x 9″ piece of cardstock, punch a hole in the center of the end with no score lines. Then punch a decorative corner on both corners.
With the strip oriented vertically with score lines near the bottom, begin attaching 2″ x 2″ squares one by one. Use a single line of adhesive at the very top of the square, and place it just at or below the score line. Begin with the bottom square/score line, and move upwards until all four have been attached.
Mat the designer paper with a piece of cardstock of the same size. Attach the 3/4″ x 4″ strip about an inch from the bottom, and only use adhesive on the very left and very right sides (there cannot be any adhesive where the waterfall apparatus will be located).
Lay the mat on a Stampin Pierce Mat and use the Take Your Pick tool to pierce holes near the left and right edges. Insert brads.
Attach this piece to your card base.
Fold the waterfall apparatus in half. Insert the piece with the ribbon down and behind the strip on the front of your card.
Place strong adhesive on the back of the bottom of the waterfall apparatus. Attach this to the front of the small strip on the card front.
Decorate as desired! Here is a waterfall card I made with the hippo stamp and die set you can get for free right now during Sale-a-bration.
And here you can see what happens when you pull on the ribbon!
