Waterfall  - Pull Card Directions

 
 
Supplies:
Neutral Car Stock (CS)   9" x 2 1/2 "  (This will be referred to as pull strip.)
Same Neutral CS    2" x 2 1/4 " ( make four of these)
CS to matte behind Neutral pieces  2 1/2" x 2 1/4 " (make four of these)
Card Base   5 1/2" x 4 1/4 "
Layer for top of base   5 1/4 " x 4"
Strip same color as layer   4" x 3/4 "
Two Brads or eyelets
Ribbon or cord (optional)
Beads and super sticky tape (optional)
 
1- You have a card base ( 4 1/4 " x 5 1/2 ") and a layer to go on top of that ( 4 x 5 1/4 ").  Now is the time to stamp these if you wish.
 
2-  Attach layer to card base.
 
3-Place strip 2 inches from the bottom of the card and attach through ALL layers with eyelets or brads. (DO NOT use Adhesive.)

4- Score your long pull strip at 1 1/2, 2 1/4, 3 3/4.  Now fold along all of the score lines.  With the pull strip vertically, you will have a long portion that has no fold lines at the bottom and the top will have 4 fold/score lines.

5- Insert the long portion under the horizontal strip and fold the top part over. . Adhere only the first section to the strip.  You will need to see the photo for this step to make sense.

6-  Stamp images on your four pieces of neutral card stock (bead if you want) and layer onto their mattes.
 
7-  Now you are ready to assemble your four stamped images to your pull strip.
 
8-  Put adhesive on the bottom section of the pull strip that is attached to the horizontal strip, and adhere your stamped image just below the fold line.

9-  Put adhesive on the third section and adhere your stamped image just below the fold line.

10-  Repeat for the last two images.
 
(See photos class_6 & class_7)
 
11-  Using a rectangle punch, punch the bottom of your pull strip and insert ribbon.

12-  Pull your strip and watch the magic unfold !  Cool, huh?!  Now, with your strip pulled down all the way, stamp a greeting.  Push the strip up and the greeting disappears.

I hope my instructions weren't to complicated and I hope you guys had as much fun as I did!
