Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls....

Now apart fm the title of a great 80's song by TLC, it is also a style of card that you can find here.

I decided that since I have had it in my "Gunna" file for EVER, it was time to give it a go. Master Thomas was turning 5 and he loves animals. I went for bright, animals and fun. Here it is....

The theory of aWaterfall Card is that you pull the tab (or ribbon or whatever you have chosen) and as the tab lengthens, the pictures flip over. You can have so much fun putting hidden messages or anything really. You are only limitied by your imagination. Here's wht happened when the tab on my card was pulled...

Master Thomas loved the card......as well as the Ben 10 card game he got (note his fave character on his shirt at the moment!!)

These cards, once you get all the pieces in order, are a heap of fun and as I said, the possibilities are endless. Why not give one a go??

Stuff used:
CS: Optix Vibrant Red, Orange, Yellow, Zesty Lime, Turquoise, (SU) Night of Navy and Whisper White
Ink: (SU Markers) Summer Sun, Tempting Turquoise, Really Red, Green Galore
Stamps: (SU) Wild AboutYou, Birthday Wish
Other bits: Cuttlebug "Number Collage" Embossing Folder, Yellow and Navy Eyelets fm stash, SU Round Tab Punch

hey there LYnda, how bright & cheerful is this card. Boy oh boy I can't believe the similarities between our Master Thomas' bright, cheesy grin, Ben 10.....
You have made an incredible card & I can see he LOVED it (nearly as much as Ben 10....lol)
In all honesty I htought I had commented on this post, but must have been mistaken :(
Hope things are going ok for you over there on the other side of OZ :)
