Happy Valentine’s Day Pebbles Friends!!! It’s Leanne here today, sharing a Forever My Always interactive project that you will love! It is so easy to create beautiful waterfall cards for Valentine’s Day that include your very own special messages. You will love the end result so much, I can guarantee you will create multiples of these cards just for fun! Check out the step by step guide below.
Gather you supplies.
step 1. I have used the new Forever My Always collection and in particular, the XOXO Quotes patterned paper. These 3″x4″ cut apart cards are ready to be used for a quick assembly. Choose your five favourite sentiments.
Assembling the card.
step 2. Trim a piece of white cardstock to 12″x3.25″. The width of the cardstock is important if you want your waterfall card to have a small white border around the outside edge of the 3″x4″ cut aparts.
step 3. Score fold lines in the white cardstock. These lines are measured, starting at where the top of the cut apart card will sit on the cardstock. Allow a small white border on the lower edge of the cut apart for consistency with the rest of the card. Mark the position of the cut apart and score your first fold line. Score four more lines at 1cm intervals.
step 4. Adhere a small strip of double sided tape to the very top of the cut apart card where the last 3″x4″ note will be revealed. Adhere it to the cardstock directly below the original scored fold line. Add more strips of double sided tape between each of the remaining fold lines.
step 5. Carefully add the remaining 3″x4″ cards to the adhesive strips. It is important not to add adhesive to any other area or the waterfall card will not have a smooth action.
step 6. Trim a 1cm x 12″ strip of additional white cardstock.
step 7. Position this cardstock strip underneath the waterfall card and fold the strip to allow it to wrap around the width of the card. Trim the excess.
step 8. This step is tricky. It is important to only add adhesive to the tabs of the cardstock strip that will sit directly below the bottom 3″x4″ cut apart card. The cardstock strip at the back of the waterfall card needs to be adhesive free for the card to work.
step 9. Create a tab with the excess white cardstock base by marking and cutting a pennant/triangle pull down edge.
Embellishing and finishing.
step 10. Embellish the reverse side of each 3″x4″ card with patterned paper or personalised love notes.
To move your card, gently hold the edges where the cardstock strip is situated. Pull down on the tab and watch the love notes be revealed.
