Designer Challenge Waterfall Anniversary Card

Hello my crafty friends

Welcome to Karen Burniston's March 2019 Designer Challenge! The theme is:  "TINY ACCESSORIES" - take your cue from any of the outfits included in Tiny Accessories 1 or Tiny Accessories 2 for a card of any theme. Incorporate an animal or get creative with using the accessories on other items, like eggs, trees, flowers. Accessorize!"

I chose to make another Waterfall Card, using Karen Burniston's adaptation of the Frame Pull Pop-Up die set. I will link her assembly video at the end of my post.

The first panel has a bow tie and necklace, and starts with the words 'Side by Side'. When you pull the tab downwards, this panel flips up to reveal the second sentiment.

This one says 'Love isn't in the falling...'. In addition to the bow tie and necklace, now there is also both a top hat and pillbox hat. Pull the tab downwards once more and this panel flips up to reveal a third panel.

This third panel completes the saying on the previous one with '...it's in the staying there'. I also added a few more accessories! The dashing cape, a pair of glasses and a handbag. Pull the tab downwards and that panel flips up to reveal the final panel.

This one shows a pair of owls wearing all the accessories from the previous panels! I also added a banner that says 'Happy Anniversary'.

For the masculine owl, I chose to use the beak and feet from the Chick in the Spring Animals so he looks different from the lady owl.

Here is a side view so you can see the waterfall effect. I love Karen Burniston's adaptation of the Frame Pull Pop-Up!

I like to make my Waterfall Cards flat, post-card style. While I decorate the back I keep everything nice and flat so the card will display nicely. We can write our note and sign on names on the white area.

I combined Crosshatch Rectangles, Border Blends Party, and a stamped fish tail banner on the back of this card. This is an anniversary card for our eldest daughter & hubby, and we will be hand delivering it. I think I will add it into a clear cello envelope!
