Fizzy Fruit Waterfall Card +

Last time I showed you a little girls version of a waterfall card, flipping in the horizontal position.
Now I'd like to show you the vertical style, using a good old stamp set Tart & Tangy, that I'm sad to see is retiring (because I didn't use it enough).

Supplies: Trimmer + Scoring Blade, Stamps; Tart & Tangy, Inks; Real Red, Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery & Daffodil Delight, Hole Punch, Brads x2, Sticky Strip & Black Cards tock; Card base (Folded) approx 6"x4" + 9/2"x 2 1/2" + 3/4"x4" White Card stock; Four 2"x2" + Front approx 5 1/2"x 3 3/4" Coloured Card stock to match ink; Four Squares Slightly larger than the white ones. 

Stamp Tart & Tangy as a background pattern onto large white card stock, then one of each fruit onto each small (2"x2") square. You can also drag the edges of the square through the ink of the coordinating colour of the stamp. 

Spray coloured card stock squares with Champagne mist shimmer paint (mixed with alcohol), for a sparkling fizzy look
Stick fruit stamped white squares onto coordinating coloured card stock

(woops, this pictures gone side ways too) The 9 1/2"x 2 1/2"black card stock needs to be scored at 2",  2 3/4",  3 1/2"  &  4 1/4" .Then pre-fold.

Add sticky strip to the top of the backside of each coloured sqaure.

Take the red backing off the sticky strip, and stick just below each score line. It's easier to start at the bottom and work your way up.

All coloured squares attached to scored black card stock.

Flip over and add sticky strip to the very bottom of the black card stock.

Stick 3/4"x4" black card stock onto the bottom edge, yet trying to keep even over-hang on the sides.

Place onto white stamped card stock, try to centre then punch holes through black cardstock band & white stamped card stock.

Add spilt pins to hold together.

Fold black full card stock base.  

Stick waterfall front to black card base.

Pull down the black pull tab & punch a hole near the bottom.

Add a piece of ribbon

& your done.
