Whilst whiling away my time surfing the internet looking for inspiration, I came across a tutorial for a waterfall card with a difference. (Or at least it was different to me!) I had a lovely time making this card, and whilst it's not perfect, I am really pleased with it.
If you fancy having a go the tutorial is here
I used some heavier weight cardstock so that the card would stand up without bending, and cut as per the tutorial.
I stamped the flower from the Faith in Nature stamp-set, along the top edge, front and back, in Soft Suede.
Then I cut around the top edge of the flowers.
Then the fun started- I coloured the flowers in Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Poppy Parade using sponge daubers- this gives a soft muted apprearance.
I then sponged Daffodil Delight underneath the flowers and around the edges of the front panel.
I diecut the M of Mum and stamped the lower case um in Old Olive.
This card was quite difficult to photograph as it kept springing open, but here are my efforts
