Sparkle N Sprinkle Basketball Waterfall Card

Our theme for October is sports, and I have had a ball! (pun intended) Okey dokey then. I'm going to start the month with a waterfall card. Some of you may already know how to create a waterfall card, but for those of you who do not, don't worry. It is so easy, you won't believe it!

For complete instructions to make a waterfall card, please visit Sparkle N Sprinkle's Tips & Techniques, Waterfall Card. 

Just remember that no matter the length of your card, the slide will be twice the length of the card minus 2 inches.

So, with that, here's my waterfall card using Sparkle N Sprinkle's Baseball & BasketBall Stamp Set 257.

Finished Waterfall Card

After investigating other written and You-Tube instructions on the internet, they all seem to show how to make only quarter size cards (4-1/4 x 5-1/2 inches). Well, that's great if the stamps or photographs you want to use will fit on a 2 x 2 inch square. The stamps I chose are about 3 inches in height. So, I made my squares 3-1/4 x 3-1/4 inches. The base of my card is 5 x 7 inches.

Pulling tab at bottom exposes the

To close the waterfall card, simply push the slide back up.

Instructions to make this card.
It may be helpful to create a "test" card from scraps first to familiarize yourself with the instructions and the mechanics of the card before creating your masterpiece. Have fun!
