Up in the air

We made this waterfall card at July's club meeting. This style card has a lot of steps, but it isn't very hard! I think Dawn Griffith has my favorite tutorial for them here, if you'd like to check it out. Basically, here's what you need:

4 Whisper White squares 1 7/8 x 1 7/8
4 Real Red squares 2 x 2
1 Real Red strip 9 x 2 (score @ 2, 2 ¾, 3 ½, and 4 ¼)
1 strip ¾ x 4

1-Stamp your images. Adhere finished balloon squares to red squares.
2- Add Turquoise Strip about one third up from the bottom. USE ONLY BRADS TO ADHERE. Put sticky strip (about 1.5 inches) in center of Turquoise strip.
3-Fold red scored strip on score lines. Slide unscored end under Turquoise strip. Decide where you want the red scored strip to be positioned. Adhere SCORED END to Sticky Strip. Pull bottom of strip to make sure it works.
4-Adhere stamped squares to red strip at score lines—begin with the bottom one first.
5-Pull out strip and stamp a greeting. Adhere ribbon with stapler and punch a half circle for “pulling.” Adhere patterned paper to card base.
