Quick Quotes Anchors Aweigh Card with LeeAnn

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. I'm not so sure about where you are, but here in Florida, the weather has become absolutely perfect for outdoor fun. Pretty good timing as well as hopefully by the end of next week my husband's boat will be ready to go in the water. With this in mind, I thought a card for him when it is ready to go would be in order.

 I had fun with this one as I have not made this card type in quite a long while. I used to experiment every week by trying a new card fold. In an attempt to get back to that practice, I made my one that my husband loves, a Waterfall Card.

Directions to make the card will follow the photos.

For those who have not seen a Waterfall Card in action, I did a short video of it in use.
1. Items needed for project:
blank card base 4.25" x 11" folded as a top folding base.
2" x 9" cardstock
5 2" circles cut from AW100
5 1.5" sentiment circles cut from AW500
1 4" x 5.25" pattern paper AW100
1 4" x 1" pattern paper AW100
1 eyelet
2 brads
5 PowderPuff Chalking Inks

2. Take the 2" x 9" card stock and lay horizontally on scoreboard, score at 2", 2.5", 3", 3.5" and 4" fold along each line

3. Use brads to adhere the 4" x 1" strip to the 4" x 5.25 base topper in the center.

4. Add an eyelet to the bottom of the longest section of the strip with the folds. Add ribbon if so desired to this end.

5. With the eyelet end closest to the card base topper slide it under the 4" x 1" strip, with the folds above the strip and the longer straight piece below.

6. Use adhesive to adhere the top of the 2" x 9" strip to the center of the 4" x 1" strip just below the bottom score line when folded over.

7. Using coordinating PowderPuff Inks, chalk up the edges of the 1.5" sentiment circles. Adhere these circles to the center of the 2" circles cut earlier.

8. Add a strip of adhesive tape to each of the scored section, and then add one 2" sentiment circle to each tape starting with the bottom.

9. Chalk the edges of the front of the main card base, and use adhesive to attach the card topper.

10. Pull from the eyelet end, and the segments will each reveal the sentiment circle as you pull.
