Waterfall Card *Heartfelt Creations*

This is the third item I submitted as a Heartfelt Creations Semi-Finalist.

My first official Design Team piece is coming up soon!

Papers are from 29th Street Market by My Mind's Eye. I stamped the Flirty Fleurs image with colored markers and colored in with chalk. Check it out in my video below!

To make the waterfall card, I followed this tutorial.

STAMP(S) AND INK: Heartfelt Creations Flirty Fleurs. Heartfelt Creations Filler Leaves- unmounted. Colorbox. Versamark.
PAPER: My Mind’e Eye 29th Street Market
COLORING MEDIUM: Whispers markers by Sugarloaf. Shimmer chalk by Pebbles.
TOOLS: Making Memories Tool Kit Deluxe
EMBELLISHMENTS: Micron pen. Eyelets. Sewing machine. Twine. Tim Holtz.
Background: Purple cardstock is 4 1/8” x 5 6/8”. Ink the edges. Using the Filler Leaves stamp, stamp the edges in several places with Versamark ink. Use green chalk on stamped images. Ink the edges of the purple cardstock. Mat and glue to green cardstock.
Waterfall: Use purple and green brush tip markers to ink the floral stamp. Stamp onto white cardstock. Color with chalk. Repeat. Use a trimmer to cut four 1 3/4” squares from the two stamped images. Use the Micron pen to draw a border on each piece. Glue the four stamped squares to 2” mats. Next, cut a 2x9” strip from polka dot paper. From one end, score at 2, 2.75, 3.5, and 4.25 inches. Starting at the 2” scored section, carefully glue one of the stamped squares to the solid side of the polka dot cardstock. And the remaining three pieces to the .75”x2” sections.

Center the waterfall piece on the card. Do NOT glue. Secure with tape or magnets. Cut a strip from the striped paper and position with magnets. Add a dot of glue on each end. Do NOT glue the entire strip. The piece with the pull on it should move freely under the strip. Glue the stamped section to the top of the strip. Add eyelets to each side. Pull out the pull tab and install an eyelet. Reinsert the pull tab under the striped strip. Machine stitch around the edge of the card. I used a Tim Holtz safety pin, twine, and a Tim Holtz charm to create a pull.
Card base: Cut Cut a 9x6 inch piece of thick, white cardstock. I like textured CS for card bases. Score at 4.5. Attach the card front to the base.
