A waterfall card offers a wide variety of designs. This one has a country cottage style. A waterfall card is fairly easy to make. You will need 4 2" X 2" squares to mat your image, 4 squares, 1 7/8" X 17/8" for the image. A strip 3/4" X 4" and a strip 2"X 9". Score the 2 x9 inch strip, starting at the bottom, at 2", 2 3/4", 3 1/2' and 4 1/4". To assemble the waterfall, mount 1 7/8 square on 2" square. Attach one square at the bottom of the strip at the score line, sontine to attach each square at the score lines. I attached the 3/4" X 4" strip with flowere shaped brads. Slide the 9" strip unter the 4" strip and adhere bottom of 9" strip to cross strip. I attached a strip of ribbon as a "pull" for the waterfall.

I made this card for my Aunt Anna Roses's 84th birthday. I choose to adorn the card with the"Ultimate Rose" because she is my favorite rose. Growing up, if I wasn't at my own home I was either at her house or my Aunt Libby's house. She and Aunt Libby are very, very special to me.
I made the card using my "Bookatrix" embossing board and embesllished with silver chain boarder peel off stickers. The card was then placed in a Keepsake box (handmade) then packaged in a special cardboard box for mailing. Didn't want to crush those pretty roses. Aunt Anna Rose got the love out of the card that I had for hoped for. I don't get back to my hometown in Pennsylvania as often as I like and was happy to send her my love via this card.
