Waterfall Wedding Card

I have always loved waterfall cards.  Recently, I saw a blog post using a waterfall card as a scrapbook element and loved it.  It also inspired me to share this card with all of my blogging friends!

Thanks to Jen,  The Purple Scrapper for the inspiration!

If you need a tutorial for this card style, the BEST I've found is from Dawn Griffith.  She is a Stampin Up Demonstrator and has THE BEST video tutorials on You Tube!!

I am invited to a wedding at the end of August.  The wedding colors are black and silver (a really classic color combo, I think).  So to match the wedding colors, I designed this wedding card using DCWV's glitter stack and black card stock.  My favorite element of the card, though, is the photos of the wedding couple.  These are their engagement pictures and I think they really are beautiful!


I will be giving this to the lovely couple in a vellum envelope and it truly makes a beautiful card, even before it's opened!  LOVE IT!!



Here are the card details:

Card base: Black, 4 1/2" x 11"
Card front: DCWV glitter paper, 4" x 5 1/4"
Photo strip: black, 2" x 9" (scored @ 2", 2 3/4", 3 1/2", 4 1/4")
Strip to hold the moving element: DCWV glitter paper, 3/4" x 4 (attached with eyelets)
Photos: printed on Dell photo paper, 1 7/8" x 1 7/8" (you need 4)
Photo mounts: black, 2" x 2" (you need 4)

Hope you like the card!  I really appreciate comments so feel free to let me know what you think!
