Farmyard waterfall cardby Laura RumbleDecember 15, 2020 |

Hi guys, Laura here sharing a fun waterfall card made with the Farmyard Ephemera and Pretty Stitches Patterned Papers.

I started off with the packet of ephemera, one waterfall mechanism, 3 squares of patterned paper, 3 squares of white card (about 12mm smaller than the patterned paper squares) and a card blank.  I added in a piece of patterned paper the size of the card front and a slightly smaller panel of white card later on as I felt it added a much-needed splash of colour to the design.

I added a touch of ink bending to my white squares before adhering ephemera and sentiments in little scenes.  The first scene – the one that will be positioned on the front can use dimensional adhesive but the second and third scenes are best kept as flat as possible.  I had a rummage through my stamp collection to find an alpha stamp set to add “it’s your birthday” to the second scene.  A smaller message could be added with the StickerKitten Stitched Alphas set but they were a touch too large for this particular message and card.

Then it was just a matter of assembly… mounting the scenes on to the patterned paper squares and then on to the mechanism; adding the patterned paper panel to the card blank, then the white card panel followed by the mechanism.  If you are interested in an in-depth tutorial for a waterfall card including how to make the mechanism let me know and I’ll work on one for next month.

I decided to add a little decoration inside the card too.  I adhered a cornstalk along with the cheeky ‘sorry for the corny card!’  Of course, I wasn’t at all sorry – I was very proud to have so many puns on one card!!  I also pulled out the Happy Birthday stamp from the Celestial Stamp Set to finish it all of nicely.
