15cm x 10.5cm heavy white cardstock (base)
14.5cm x 10cm coloured cardstock (for matting)
14cm x 9.5cm white cardstock
23cm x 5cm coloured cardstock
5cm x 5cm coloured cardstock – need 4 (for matting)
4.5cm x 4.5cm white cardstock – need 4
9.5cm x 2cm coloured cardstock
2 x brads
Ribbon and embellishments
Stamps and inks
1. Decorate the 14cm x 9.5cm and the 4.5cm x 4.5cm cardstock using stamps and inks.
2. Once decorated these can be adhered to the coloured cardstock mats.
3. Score the 23cm x 5cm cardstock at 5cm, 7cm, 9cm and 11cm. Fold the score lines. This will become the “waterfall”.
4. Place adhesive along the bottom edge of the 23cm x 5cm cardstock. The bottom edge is opposite the 5cm score line.
5. Adhere this to the 9.5cm x 2cm strip – be sure to centre it. You do not want to attach the unscored end to this strip!
6. Place a small amount of adhesive on each end of the 9.5cm x 2cm strip. Attach this to the 14cm x 9.5cm cardstock. Be sure that the top of the “waterfall” does not go above the top of the card front when it is flat on the card.
7. Pierce one hole in each side of the 9.5cm x 2cm strip – make sure it goes through all three layers. Set a brad in each hole.
8. Adhere this to the front of the card base.
9. Adhere the first 5cm x 5cm square to the space scored at the end of the waterfall.
10. Apply adhesive to the scored sections of the waterfall and attach the remaining 5cm x 5cm squares. Do not apply the adhesive to the whole back of the 5cm x 5cm square – only the 2cm scored sections of the waterfall.
11. Punch the long end of the waterfall with a tag punch and attach the ribbon.
