You’re Simply Wonderful

5/31/21 DT Favorite Winner at Classic Design Challenge Blog!

Hi everyone! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! Loving life here with great weather and lots of studio time! It’s time for a new challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration for LTCCB #58 – May Anything Goes! I created a waterfall card – my first-ever waterfall card – and if you know me, you know that I’m a fun fold geek! I’ve had these instructions in my tutorial folder for quite some time and don’t exactly know why I haven’t made one yet… I thoroughly enjoyed making this!

I stamped the background in green using a pretty floral stamp set and layered the panel on black cardstock. I stamped a sentiment at the top of the panel in black ink. I applied transfer foil to a cardstock scrap to use for the centers of the flowers and OMG this is some fun stuff! I die cut ten flower centers from the foiled cardstock and adhered one to each of the flowers on the background. I then stamped the four waterfall panels with the same stamp set but in different colors, and layered those panels on black cardstock. I adhered the remaining gold foiled flower centers to the panels. I stamped the vertical strip across the pull mechanism in green and layered it on black cardstock as well, and adhered it to the base panel with green Scrapbook Nails.

I stamped a simple ‘thanks’ sentiment on the back, leaving plenty of room for a handwritten note and signature.

And one more peek… so happy with how this turned out! I see more of these in my future, lol!

Here’s a little video showing how this fun fold works!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
