October Hop - Waterfall Cards

Welcome to the

Welcome to A Year of Card Techniques Blog Hop where each month we feature a different card technique. We’ve assembled a team of card makers who range from new to advanced, so you’ll see a great variety of cards and ideas.
There’s just something about interactive cards!  And Waterfall Cards are among the best interactive card techniques.  They look intricate, though, so we’ll let you in on any hints we uncover along the way.   Hopefully, we’ll inspire you to try one for yourself.

I love making these cards and use to make them all the time. Once you figure out the measurements, they're not that hard. I have a friend visiting and I even put her to work making one. We plan on giving these to the local VA hospital during the holiday season.

We had videos to look at to make these or jog our memories in my case. I found the videos were hard for me to follow. I needed written directions which I found on Splitcoast Stampers and have included the link here: Waterfall Card Directions

These are the three I made.

This is the one my friend made.

This last one is special because it was made for me a few years ago by a good friend and her children. I love the torn tree shape. It shows how creative you can get with these and her children did most of the work on it.

Here is a quick (and I mean quick) video to show you what is on each panel of the cards we made. The last card in the video with animals, I used colored pencils to color the animals.

Now you’re off to visit with Lisa.. Hope you had fun and thanks for stopping by. See you next month with another technique!

Here’s the full line-up in case you get lost:


  1. Your trio of cards are wonderful and your friend's is great, too! And I love the one you received previously....I've never seen a shaped waterfall card before!

  2. I'm so impressed with all of these waterfall cards, and yours are amazing. You've got me in the holiday spirit with these. Beautiful work.

  3. These are wonderful and I love how creative the tree is that your friend made.

  4. Great cards! I really like how you stamped words to show on each level to make the full sentiment. Thanks so much for sharing these.

  5. Great job! I love the Christmas music in the video!

  6. Great job! And fantastic idea to include written instructions. I will keep that in mind for the next hop. I added a video, too, but yours was so much better. I didn't even think to add music, etc. Awesome job all around!
