You may be wondering how to make a waterfall greeting card, and in particular are they easy or difficult to make. Waterfall greeting cards are quite tricky to make but are a lot of fun once you get the hang of them. This particular waterfall card is for Halloween.
How To Make A Waterfall Greeting Card
Begin making this waterfall card by selecting a sheet of A4 black card stock from your craft supplies and use a score board and bone tool to score a line to create a DL (tall) size card.
Carefully fold the card along the fold you have created and trim off the excess card so it is a DL size.
Select some green card or paper and cut it 1cm smaller than the front of the card. Use double sided tape to attach the green panel to the front of your card.
Select some Halloween or dark themed paper from your craft supplies and cut a panel 1cm smaller than the green card. Use double sided tape to hold it in place.
Next, cut a strip of black card stock 5cm X 22.5cm.
Score horizontal lines at 5.1cm, 6.9cm, 8.7cm and 10.5cm from the top of the strip of card.
Stamp or print four Halloween themed images onto the same green card you have used for the front panel of the card.
Cut the images 4cm x 4cm using a scalpel and metal edge ruler.
From a sheet of black card cut three squares 5cm X 5cm using a scalpel and ruler.
Now place the first image on the first fold so the fold is at the top. You will only need to attach part of the image not the whole square. I find it easier to put the double sided tape on to the black strip of card rather than the back of the image.
To make the pull tab cut an 8cm X 2cm strip of card from the same green card you used earlier and make a hole in the bottom of it using an eyelet setter. Then add an eyelet and set it in place.
Print or stamp a card message of your choice onto some green card.
