Waterfall Card

Hi Everyone,
Today's project is a Waterfall card.  Remember this technique?  I have been wanting to try this for quite a while.  I picked up this cute stamp set from Hero Arts and thought it would be perfect for a waterfall card.  If you have been following along with me you know that I have been posting the all occasion cards I made for my friend (35 in all).  This is another of those cards.  This one was really special to her because her family is Ukrainian and the stacking dolls are a very popular theme in Ukrainian art.  She has this card earmarked for her aunt.
 I used the pattern available on Split Coast Stampers in their Resources tab.  All papers and CS(Apricot Appeal) are from Stampin' Up.  The stamp used to make the background is also from Stampin' Up.  The sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly.  Now here is my tip for making this waterfall stay together.  Don't use a tape runner.  It will fall apart.  I used a strong glue stick (Extra Strong Embellishment Glue Stick) made by Pioneer (my favorite adhesive!!).  Glue your layers together with the Pioneer and you will be happy.  This is what the card looks like as you pull down on the tab.

A few Fun challenges for my Stacking Dolls Waterfall Card:
Anything Goes: More that one fold
My Time To Craft: Citrus colors
Shopping Our Stash: an Old Technique- I used the waterfall card technique
Top Tip Tuesday: shaped cards-waterfall shape with a tip on adhesive

Hope you enjoyed my waterfall card.  Still super hot temperatures her in Michigan today.  I am just hanging out inside with the air conditioning on.  I might go and do a little stamping now.  Have a great day.  Love ya.
