Kinetic Cards · Made To Surprise

Very Easy Waterfall Cards

Hi everyone, I revisited the Waterfall style card and made these two cute versions.

Although it looks complex the Waterfall style card is actually pretty straight forward to make, and is always the style that surprises people with how easy it is to make.

As you pull the tab, each panel flips over to reveal a different image. These cards are great with photos on each panel, for a special birthday, anniversary or baby reveal.

Once you pull the tab fully it will reveal a hidden message on the long panel.

I shared a tutorial about 3-4 years ago, simplifying this style and it’s one of my highest viewed tutorials, so if you want a smaller size or different layout take a look at this tutorial here.

I made 2 versions, one with my Perky Pooches and the other with my Cute Kittens stamp set. One was also supposed to be a landscape orientation but I forgot!!!
