Here is a card I made for Becca’s birthday coming up on January 28th! I am excited to send it to her.

Unlike the pop-up card, a waterfall card includes a pull tab and allows a series of hidden images or messages to be revealed as you continue pulling the tab.  In this card, I wanted each flap to unveil the letters spelling out “H-A-P-P-Y” and then the bottom message on the tab says “Birthday” when it is fully pulled out. I used the same cardstock paper from my Happy New Year Pop Up Card and from the Pop Up Tutorial. It’s always best to use up the paper that you already have and reduce paper waste!

To see it in action, you can watch the short video showing how this mechanism works.  As always, I still took some close up pics of the card.

  3. You still haven’t explained how it works. I can barely tell anything from the video. : ( I’d love to make this for my wife but I don’t see how you made it work.
