Waterfall Valentine- featuring January's Creative Cafe' kit

Hi There!  Welcome to the The Rubber Cafe' blog!  Today I have a fun card to share with you that I made with the January For the Love of Cats and Dogs Creative Cafe' Kit.

The adorable dog and cat images in this set are the perfect size for a Waterfall Card and it's been forever since I made one so that's what I decided to do for you today.

For this card you'll need to cut:
1-11" x 8 1/2" panel of pink cardstock
4-2" square panels of pink cardstock
1-9" x 2" panel of pink cardstock
1-4 " x 1/2" panel of pink cardstock
4-7/8" square panels from white cardstock
1-5 1/4" x 4" panel of patterned paper

Fold the 11" x 81/2" panel of pink cardstock in half to create an A2 card base.
Adhere the patterned paper panel to the front of the card base with Scrap Happy Sheer Glue.

Adhere Scor-Tape on the ends of the 4" x 1/2" panel of pink cardstock and the adhere to the card front about 1" from the bottom of the card.
Adhere a heart gem on the each end of the adhered panel.

Score the 9"  x  2"  strip of pink cardstock. 
Starting at end of strip, score 2", 2¾", 3 ½", and 4 ¼" from the end.
Punch a hole on the end of the half that isn't scored.
Add Scor-Tape to the end of the scored half as shown.

Slide the end with the punched hole underneath the thin strip of pink cardstock.
Adhere the other end to the top of the thin strip of pink cardstock.

Stamp images on the four white panels.

Color images with copic markers and back with the pink square panels using Scrap Happy Sheer Glue.
Add Scor-Tape to each of the half inch sections of the 9" panel.
Starting with the bottom section, adhere an image to each of the scored sections.


Tie the bakers twine through the punched circle.
Your card is ready to go!  Pull the twine and watch if flow!

You can finish the inside anyway you want to!  This is how I finished mine!


I hope you enjoyed my Waterfall Card tutorial and that you've enjoyed all the awesome Cafe' Kit projects the design team has shared so far.  Stop by again soon for even more inspiration!
