    Waterfall Card Instructions

    Hi Joyce – The originator of this card was by Kathy Logan over at splitcoast. Following are my instructions specific to my Butterfly Card. TFL

    Step 1
    Cut Whisper White in the following measurements
    5-1/4” x 8” (1)
    1-7/8” x 1-7/8” (4)

    Cut Elegant Eggplant
    2” x 2” (4)
    5-1/2” x 41/4” (1)
    9” x 2” (1)
    ¾” x 4” (1)

    Step 2
    Fold the largest piece of whisper white cardstock in half, and then stamp it with creative elements flourish in Pink Pirouette. Also stamp the four Whisper White squares.

    Step 3
    Attach your stamped squares to the slightly color larger elegant eggplant squares with adhesive

    Step 4
    Next you will need to score your 9 x 2 strip of Elegant Eggplant cardstock. Starting at end of strip, score 2″, 2¾”, 3 ½”, and 4 ¼” from the end.
    Fold along the scored lines. We’ll call this piece A.

    Step 5
    Attach the horizontal strip (the one which measures ¾” x 4″) to front of card with eyelets.

    Note: it is very important that you do not use any adhesive in the middle of this piece

    Step 6
    Next, attach piece A to the horizontal strip you just attached to the card front. To do this, slide the longest section of piece A between the horizontal strip and the card, making sure to center it in the middle of your card. Line up the very edge of the scored end of piece A with bottom of the horizontal strip and attach with adhesive.

    Note: the adhesive placement is very important you do not want to attach the scored side and the longest section of piece A together!

    Step 7
    Stamp your sentiments using On Your Birthday. I used Just Believe for the first panel. Then attach your first stamped image to the bottom 2″ x 2″ space at the scored end of piece A.

    Step 8
    Apply adhesive to the scored sections of piece A only, and attach remaining stamped pieces.

    Once you’ve attached these pieces, you should be able to gently pull the bottom of the longest section of piece A directly down and watch the stamped images flip one at a time and then slide behind piece A.

    Decorate 2′ x2″ squares with Butterfly Embosslit using Elegant Eggplant and Vellum cardstock. Using the Basic Pearls for the body.

    Step 9
    Attach eyelet and ribbon to the bottom of piece A. To do this, simply mark where you want to place your eyelet with card in the closed position. Then pull the longest section of piece A until it is fully extended. Punch a hole and place eyelet. Thread ribbon through eyelet and tie. Trim ends with scissors. I also spritzed the card with Champagne Shimmer Mist, it’s just hard to see in the pic.
