Warning: The instsructions for this card are very complex. We have given them exactly as the artist wrote them. Our best suggestion is to find a class on how to make waterfall cards at your local stamp store.

1.) Cut a strip of card stock to measure 3" x 12 1/2". Call this piece A.

2.) Cut two 3" X 3 1/2". With B, score across the short side at 3 3/4", 8 1/4", 5" and 5 3/4" from the top edge. With C, 1 1/4" x 2 3/4" lengths.

3.) Cut a 1 3/4" x 4" strip. Fold over A at the bottom, cut corners off your small piece and adhere to A to make an open pocket. Sponge all pieces of card using rust ink.

4.) Stamp on main A strip using designs from the solid shapes and letter sets.

5.) On a separate piece of card stock, stamp the lowercase letters and tear around each letter. Adhere to the front of the card using pop-up glue dots.

6.) On the 3 small pieces of card stock, stamp designs on front and top of back. Adhere to the various score lines on B to make your waterfall.

7.) Attach B at the front bottom of the waterfall to the inside of the pocket on A, leaving back of B to be free.

8.) Pull the bottom of B up and down to make sure your waterfall card works.

9.) Finish your card with cording at the bottom
