Papertrey Ink February Blog Hop - Honey Bees

Hello friends!  PTI's February Blog Hop is all about interactive cards and the first type of interactive card that popped into my head was the tried and true waterfall card.  I've done so many of these waterfall cards in the past and they're always fun to create.  When you pull the ribbon, each stamped panel waterfalls or flips up revealing the next in line (see photos below).

For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Honey Bees along with some October Afternoon designer paper, brads and a few glitter buttons from this last weeks Make-it-Monday tutorial from PTI design team member Ashley Newell.
I'll be back tomorrow to share my Sweet Sunday Sketch card!
Thanks for stopping by!

So fun, Lynn! And considering all the yellow I saw on your Pinterest boards lately, I'm not surprised you created a bright yellow card :D I love it! The waterfall technique is so neat and I adore the glitter buttons you added! Great job!

I have never made a waterfall card, but your card looks so cute, I think I need to try it. I am normally very scared of bees, but your card makes that bee look (almost) friendly.

Your card is soooo pretty! Great colors and design. I made one of these about 8-10 years ago at a Stampin' Up! party. It didn't turn out as nice as yours. I still have it to try and make another...I think it's about time, don't you think it's about time, lol? Thank you for the encouragement to try it again. TFS.

How fun! Love the look of the graduated size panels on the waterfall--I've never tried one like that.
