AIR17 Waterfall Card - WINNER ANNOUNCED
« on: July 15, 2017, 09:18:35 AM »
So I've been wanting to try a waterfall card for ages and I just never get around to doing it.  I figured if I hosted it as a challenge, I'd finally give it a try.

Requirements: Create a waterfall card.  Please use at least one stamped image.

Splitcoast Stamper Tutorial

YouTube Video

YouTube Video Masculine Card

Be sure to link your project to this thread, or I might miss it.  If you remember, include AIR17 WFC as a label and in the title of your piece. 

There will be a drawing for RAK.  Your name will go in the hat for each project you enter.


Combining challenges: But of course.

Deadline: You have until midnight your local time on Sunday July 23 to post your project.

Examples:  Under Construction

Thank you!  It's been too long since I've made one of these.  I need a refresher.

Well, thank you Craft Nerd for hosting this fine challenge.  Since it was at the top of the page and it is hotter then I care to be out in I sat down and made one of these fine waterfall cards......

First off I really just cannot for the life of me follow other people's directions.  So I had to use two full 12 x 12 sheets of paper for the purple because I kept cutting things wrong.  After I had the card part way constructed I realized then what I was supposed to do and what I was doing that was not going to work.....LOL.  So I got it all straightened out and the card turned out ok.  Here is the card.

Thank you for looking.  And there is a picture attached to this post showing the waterfall part way out.
You know it's been a good day when I haven't released the flying monkeys.......

Great card Sadie.  I'm sorry you had so many issues while making it, but you would never know from the finished card.  It is adorable.

Sarah,  the link to your middle video is not working.  (I should stop watching videos and make the card anyway, but FYI)

That is such a fun birthday card, April!  The recipient will really feel special.

Waterfall cards are so much fun to make and receive!  I followed the instructions in the Masculine card video Sarah linked.  So much easier to make with you tube!!  The first time I tried to make one I was following written instructions.  Rough!
 
Hooray!  I'm ready for my daughter and SIL's anniversary in August!  Thanks for the challenge.  :D

April - what a great birthday card.

Cindi - way to go getting your daughter's anniversary card done early.  I love that you used the same papers from her wedding invitations.

Here is my try at this, I love interactive cards so this is neat, I went by the video, I do better that way and I also used the way the guy did the sentiment on his card.

Here it is all the way open

I tried like 3 different times to see if I could post it half open and it wouldn't let me do it in the gallery so I am going to try and attach it here

I used a combo of two of the tutorials.  This was fun to make and easier than I thought. I would have never made one without this challenge, it does hurt my brain a bit to make fancy folds!

I will try to attach a photo here of the card pulled out to see the sentiment. 

If I were to make more of these, I would want a stamp that says Pull.  My handwriting is so bad.  Does anyone know of such a stamp set for waterfall cards and things?
