Waterfall Card

I made a waterfall card for Carol's birthday earlier this week and forgot to take a photo.  Therefore, I had no choice but to make another to share with you. 

Waterfall cards look much harder than they really are.  I followed directions from Splitcoast Stampers located here to get the exact folding measurements.  I used an old Repeat Impressions stamp for the cake and sentiment.  The colors and lack of frilly embellishments make this a good male card and very 'mail'able.

Today my June Issue of Quick Cards arrived in my mailbox.  Featured on the front cover are Amazing Waterfalls.  My guess is that we'll be seeing a lot of these on blogs and in challenges for a few weeks, just like the Box Cards that were recently popular.  If you don't subscribe to Quick Cards, this might be a good issue to pick up at the craft store.  There is a freebie package of Kraft Confetti paper with matching vellum
borders that is adorable and so summery which comes with this issue.

Today, I am entering this Waterfall card in the following challenges:


  1. Great card, love the waterfall technique. Thank you for joining us this week at HIMCR.
