Check Out My Waterfall Card on the Use Your Stash Blog Hop!

If you are joining us for the "Use Your Stash Blog Hop" you are right on track. I cannot wait to show you my card! You should be coming from Joy McHargue's Blog.

There are 8 participants this month.

Today I am showcasing a waterfall card. I have never made a waterfall card before and to tell you the truth, I don't know why I joined this blog hop except that I wanted to challenge myself to make something different. This is easily the cutest card that I have EVER made!
I am loving the Close to My Heart Later Sk8r Paper pack and paired up with the new stamp set, Fast and Furiours (D1541), this card was just over the top. Love it, love it, LOVE IT!!!

A waterfall card is a card that when you pull the string at the bottom, the 4 flaps change position and a different image appears. Isn't that cool? Most of the cards that I found instructions for were 4.25" x 5.5". I wanted more room to work with so I changed the dimension of the card to 5" x 7".
So, let me show you my card in the closed position:

Now I pull the string down and the first flap pulls up:

I pull the string again and another flap opens up:

And again. See the words on the underside of the flaps? Those are cut from the zip strip that comes at the top of each piece of patterned paper from Close to My Heart.

And I have to show you the inside of the card. It is decorated as well. The AWeSOME comes from one of the patterned papers in this paper pack.

I am also including a mini video on how the card works. Go ahead and laugh at the first part where I was holding the part of the card that is supposed to move, so it doesn't. I know that I did! LOL

Now hop on over to Shirley Ross' Blog for another example of a beautiful waterfall card.
