An Altered Waterfall

Yesterday I showed on my FB Live video (now on YouTube) an altered Waterfall card. I used Picket Fence Studios and stamps and a great paper pack from Whimsy Stamps called Farmhouse!

My YouTube channel is in the side bar.  Look for yesterday's video. 

I bet you're wondering how this is a waterfall style card. It is! There is the ribbon at the bottom that you pull. But it doesn't look like a waterfall card.... Ok, pull the ribbon.

The top panel flips up and ah ha! Pull the ribbon again...

The 2nd panel flips up! Pull the ribbon again....

And the third panel flips up! I made my panels different lengths so that the panels fully cover the panel under it. Sadly the pull tab does stick a bit when you close the card but a bit of wiggling helps. Check out my video for more info.

I used some fun brads to "adhere" my cross member down rather than glue or tape. 

The basic card template is found on my Sept. 9, 2021 post.  The only difference is the size of the panels. Mine in this card today are: 3" x 4 1/4", 3" x 3 1/2", 3" x 2 3/4", and 3" x 2". Depending on where you place the cross member that you adhere the bottom panel to will determine the length of the panels. 

I need to make another waterfall card for a swap at out local stamp group the end of the month. It will be more the standard style. Have you made a waterfall card? It's much easier than it looks!
