Waterfall Card with the Pergamano Mini Flower Poppets

The Pergamano mini Poppet stamps are the perfect size to make a waterfall card.  Here I used the Flower Poppet set.
Die cut six panels from a piece of Toscana designer paper using the 2.5” nested square die.
Stamp one of the Fedotova mini Flower Poppets onto each square in Versamark ink. Heat emboss with white embossing powder.
Cut a mat for each topper from Clarity stencil card using the 2.75” nested square picot die. Mat up the images.
Cut a strip off a piece of large Clarity stencil card the length of the card x 6.8cm. Score a line at 6.8cm from the bottom and then four more lines 2cm apart.
Add a panel to the bottom square with wet glue.
Fold back the panel, add glue to the next section between the fold lines. Add a second panel, lining up the top of the panel with the top score line of that section. Continue until five toppers are in place.
Fold the excess back. Cut another strip of stencil card 6.8cm x 9cm. Glue it onto the back of the folded back panel so that 5cm shows below the toppers.
Make a card blank from Clarity stencil card measuring 8.5” x 4”. Cut a panel from the same pattern of Toscana designer paper (8” x 3.5”) and mat it onto black card (8.25” x 3.75”).
Cut a strip of black card (2.5cm 9.5cm), cut a strip of the Toscana paper 2cm x 9.5cm and mat the two together.
Attach this strip to the patterned topper with eyelets either side so the bottom of the strip is 5.5cm from the bottom.
Shape the bottom of the pull section. Slide the waterfall mechanism through the eyelet strip and glue the bottom of the lowest topper to the eyelet strip. Check that the waterfall mechanism works.
Add an eyelet to the bottom of the pull and thread ribbon through it. Add the topper to the front of the card blank.
To finish, die cut Happy Birthday using the sentiment from the Floral Frame from black card and add it to the pull at the bottom.
