I’ll say this for me, I’m not a quitter. I gave the waterfall card another try, and of course, I did it wrong again. This time I flipped the tab over the wrong direction, so my waterfall wouldn’t fall. Happily, it wasn’t a total makeover, I just flipped the tab over the correct way, and re-papered it. I’m really happy with the end result, and although I didn’t video this one, I’ll make sure to show it when I do the video with a Christmas themed card. I’m really not sure what else I did wrong, as none of the sizes that MayMay gave for the paper to cover each of the pieces that flip were correct. Mine were a lot smaller, which tells me that I might have done something else wrong. Oh well, it works and looks good, and I don’t feel too badly that all I had to do today was re-cut paper….not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things.
I used Graphic 45 paper that was discontinued called Rare Oddities, that had really great colors. My favorites for Halloween, with a lot of purples and greens and only minimal oranges. I didn’t use any of MayMay’s ideas for putting the word “pull” or “place photo here” on my card, as I thought it was self explanatory. I added a really fun little tag that said “31” on it, and used eyelets so it wouldn’t rip the paper when you pull it. I put an eyelet on the “31” that was cardboard, just so it would be consistent with the card. It took me all afternoon to finish the card, but it’s really more of an album, and I hope my friend really likes it. She always has a Halloween party at her house, and now she’ll be able to add photos to the card after the party. It will make a nice little keepsake from this year’s party. I’m crossing my fingers that she’s happy with it.
