Waterfall Valentine's Card


Hello! I always envy crafters who can craft or color on the go. I seem to be not organized for such. I feel like I would not be able to bring everything I need. But then I remembered that I was able to do it once during a long, grueling flight from the US to the Philippines. I stamped a lot of images before I left and brought some markers with me. I ended up with a bunch of colored birds which I was able to use on this card.

I die cut a pink card stock with the Lawn Fawn Flippin' Awesome die. This is the second time I used this die. I used a thick cardstock for this card which I feel made the flipping a bit difficult. I used a patterned paper the first time. It was a bit flimsy but easier to flip. I will try this die on a thin card stock and see if there is any difference.

I die cut the embellishments after. The background and the grassy hill are from the LF Rainbow Scallops 6x6 paper pad. The squares were cut with a die included in the Flippin' Awesome die set. The chicks are from the LF Chirpy Chirp Chirp stamp set. I colored the chicks with Zig Clean Color markers. I die cut the chicks with the coordinating dies.

The heart die I used for the balloons is also a part of the LF Flippin' Awesome die set. Before die cutting the hearts, I adhered a double sided tape on the same pink card stock I used for the Flippin' mechanism. After I die cut the hearts, I poured Elizabeth Crafts Silk Microfine Glitter in Cool Diamonds. I burnish the glitter to the heart die cut with my finger. This gave the card stock a different look, making it shimmery and lighter in shade.

I die cut the letters from LF Cole's ABC die set using white card stock I adhered the letters to the heart die cuts. I also added fine silver threads to make the heart into a balloon.

Now, that my flippin' elements are done, I adhered the squares to the scores created by the Flippin' die. Lawn Fawn has a video on their website on how to use this die which I linked here if you click the word video.

I die cut a pink card stock using a stitched rectangle die. I stamped the sentiment from LF Love Letters stamp set. I adhered this to the last panel of the flippin' die cut. Make sure that anything you adhere to this panel is flat and adhered really well. Any loose corner can get caught in the sliding mechanism. Ask me how I know.

For the base panel, I die cut a gray cardstock using a stitched rectangle die. I matted this with a pink patterned paper from the same paper pad. I die cut this with the LF Outside In Stitched Scalloped Rectangle die. I created a sentiment strip using a sentiment stamp from the LF Love Letters stamp set on a white card stock.

Here is a short video showing you how interactive this card is.

How fun is it to get a card like this? Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
