This is a side fold card with the waterfall construction on the inside. I recently came across the Lawn Fawn die set and video instructions. So easy... BIG GRIN 

Click HERE to see a less than a minute UTube of me opening and closing the card...

I'm using a die "Merry Christmas Small", "Wishing You A" 3pce set from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE and HERE      

And I'm using rubber stamp sentiments and quote stamps from Quietfire Design ("God Gave Us Memory..."); ("International Merry Christmas" 6pce set)

 

    

Cut, scored and folded my green cardstock to create the side fold card. Adhered a piece of white Lava heavy textured paper.

Stamped, cut, molded and assembled the roses (John Next Door "Christmas Rose"). Applied a layer of clear polish and immediately dipped each petal into Distress Stickles Dry Glitter "Clear Rock Candy"

Die cut the ivy corners (John Next Door "Ivy Corner") from white cardstock. Hit direct to paper using Distress "Mowed Lawn" and then a bit of "Forest Moss".

Adhered the ivy and flowers in a pleasing manner. Adhered the gems to the flower centers using Gem-Tac adhesive.

Stamped the quote using Versafine Clair "Charming Pink" and clear embossed. Die cut with Spellbinder's Circle die set. Sponged around edges with "Picked Raspberry" ad then lightly with "Twisted Citron". Adhered to card.

 

 

Cut, scored and folded my green cardstock to create the waterfall structure and insert layers. Each waterfall page is 3"w x 2.5"h.

Adhered the waterfall structure to the inside of the card. Pulled the tab to make sure it worked BIG GRIN and it did. 

Cut the rose patterned scrapbook paper (Provo Craft Heather Lancaster "Garden" pad) and adhered to each layer. Stamped and clear embossed each salutation using Versafine Clair "Green Oasis".

Die cut the "Wishing You A" from an Oriental Menu mailer. The "Merry Christmas small" in a pale green from Hunkadory "Marvelous Mirror" Pad.

The words on the back page stamped using Just Rite "Brayton" alphabet stamps and the green stamp pad, clear embossed on white cardstock. Trimmed down and adhered to pages. I adhered a piece of Graffix plastic to the "It comes..."page so the tab would have no interference in closing.

 

 

Please note, to make this card I cut the length to 9.75" with score lines every 1/4". (the 3.5" on the diagram becomes 4-5/8" and the 6" becomes 4-1/4"

The diagram is the basic structure. 

From a basic 12"w cardstock you can place a 3.5"w image by whatever height you want. This one will hold 4 flaps.

Score every 1/2" and fold backwards and front wards to get the cardstock to be supple.

Score those little tabs. They are the only thing holding the waterfall onto your card.
