Good morning Friends. Carolyn here for Scrapbook Blessing’s Club Tuesday – Cards with my Waterfall Birthday Card. Tip: when in doubt about how to put this together, watch a lot of videos on youtube! That’s my lifesaver!!
Here is the card I created:
I love the final outcome of this card and it’s not as difficult to create as it may look. Only reason I watched a youtube tutorial is how to attach the waterfall strip to the strip across (and each time I create I will have to watch the video again!!)
This view is where I pulled the decorated waterfall down. I stamped sentiment from a retired stamp set from Stampin! Up (4-piece) that states ‘Celebrate’ and added a gemstone on corner. Plus I punched a hole in center of strip for a ribbon pull.
The butterflies I used is a Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, and the smaller butterflies was from a kit supplied to me by my Stampin Up upline for a card project. I attached the across band with two brads.
As you can see I need to use my Stamp-a-ma-jig to ensure that my sentiments are straight. And this sentiment, purchased several years at a Archivers Store up north, was used for the inside of this card. I stamped on a similar color cardstock, and used a decorative ruler for scalloping the edges and than distress inked the edges. Plus I used my finger-tip daubers and daubed Tea Stain dots over the card piece. Placed two gemstones on each inner-corner and I have a birthday card to send to someone.
