|I’m thrilled to be guest posting today at Bubbly Nature Creations!
Thank you, Rachel, for giving me the opportunity to share this Easy
Waterfall Card tutorial with your readers! I’ve made several of these cards—all adapted from the original instructions at Splitcoaststampers.com.
|You will need a few different colors of cardstock. For the best color combinations, choose at least three colored cardstock sheets, and one neutral sheet. I’m using mostly Close To My Heart products in this tutorial. These colors are Colonial White, Blush, Juniper, and Creme Brulee.|
|Next choose a combination of inks, watercolor pencils, or other coloring medium that compliment your paper colors.|
|You will need one length of ribbon, a strong paper adhesive, and something with which to start a flame!|
|Choose some stamps (or stickers if you don’t have stamps). You will use these on the four small squares on the front of the card.|
|Next you need to cut your paper into the right sizes.|
From your neutral cardstock, you should cut the following pieces: 5 1/4″ x 8″ (1), 1 7/8″ x 1 7/8″ (4).
|Take the largest piece of neutral cardstock, fold it in half, and stamp a design on it. I used a sponge to apply a light color.|
|Stamp an image (or apply stickers) on the four neutral squares. Then glue them to the four bigger squares that you cut from the cardstock.|
|Next, use your bone folder to score the 9 x 2 strip. Starting at one end, score a line at 2″, 2 3/4″, 3 1/2″, and 4 1/4″. Fold along the scored lines. When you apply this piece to the card, the longest end of this piece will be flat against the card.|
|Attach the horizontal strip (3/4″ x 4″) to the front of the card with eyelets. Do not use any glue on this piece!|
|Now you’ve got a beautiful and unique card to share!|
