Waterfall Christmas

Our CCEE challenge hostess, Sabrina, challenged us to make either a waterfall card or a pop-up card. I chose to do the waterfall since I had not tried this before. I found a great YouTube video for instructions as I'm much better watching a video than still shots of photos.  If you're good with still shots, Splitcoaststampers has a tutorial in their Resources section.



I used the Snowflake Ornament die by Memory Box for my waterfall.  Here's an inside view showing the Rubbernecker Stamps sentiment I used.


 Please visit our CCEE Stampers' blog to see what the other gals created for your viewing pleasure.

Here's a complete list of the supplies I used:
Stamps:  Rubbernecker
Paper:  Ridinghood Red, Old Olive, White (Stampin' Up), holiday designer paper
Ink:  Ridinghood Red
Accessories:  Memory Box Snowflake Ornament die, Old Olive eyelets, Cropadile, shimmer mist, white grosgrain ribbon, 1" circle punch, X-Press It tape

Gorgeous card, love that ornament die.

Charlene, this is fabulous - what a great idea to use the diecuts. I'm laughing, because when I tried my first waterfall, I don't think YouTube really existed as a resource for crafters. It sure would have made life easier - I struggled and struggled with a magazine tutorial till I found SCS.
This is going to be such a special Christmas card for somebody!
