Butterfly Waterfall

August's Stampers 8 club get together we focused on Waterfall cards.  We created two of them and today's post is one of those cards.

I remember the first time I sat down to make one of these.  I felt so intimidated and thought it was going to be so difficult.  It turned out to be so simple, yet the finished effect is such a WOW.

I won't go into many details on how to make the card as you can easily jump over to Splitcoaststampers for the tutorial.

The only change I made was to the size of my card base and the size of the large piece of Very Vanilla cardstock we stamped on.  The card base was created as half a card originally with the vanilla being the part of the card that flaps open.  I wasn't fond of this so I created the Marina Mist cardbase in standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 (cut from 4 1/4 x 11" scored at 5 1/2") and the Vanilla cardstock that I have stamped all over measures 4" x 5 1/4".

For this card we used the new colour Daffodil Delight and two stamp sets.  The brand new set called Butterfly Prints from the 2010-2011 IBC and the returning set Inspired by Nature.

Thanks for stopping by today.
