YCU blog hop - Masculine Cards

Today I am really excited to participate in my second blog hop for the Young Crafters Unite - Masculine cards blog hop 

If you arrived from Kyla Norris's blog, you are on the right track.

For the blog hop, I decided to create a baby boy waterfall card. It's a card for a family that just had a baby boy after two girls, they have no idea what is in line for them... :-)

The inspiration for this card was from Shipola's blog that created a waterfall album. From there it was easy to find how to create a waterfall card (my beloved youtube came to the rescue once more).

So here is my creation:

General overview of the card. I used the Lawn Fawn - Plus One stamp set. I really love it. The images are so sweet.

Few pictures of how the waterfall works:

The greeting is in Hebrew and it's saying: "congratulations and wishes from all my heart" (yes, I know it doesn't really translate well, but believe me, it sounds OK in Hebrew).
The heart is from the Hero Arts - Find Joy stamp set.

I even created a matching envelope. And since it is a masculine card, I had to stop myself from adding some glitter and blings :-)

And now, the real surprise, my first YouTube video - just a very quick video to show you (if you are not familiar) how the waterfall works.

List of supplies:

If you made it until here - thank you. I would love to hear what you think of this card. Be sure to leave a comment on all the members of the hop for a chance to win some wonderful prizes! The sponsors for this hop are Simon Says Stamp who will be donating two $25 gift certificates and Paper Smooches who will be giving away the new My Guy stamp set. The winners will be posted on the YCU blog on Tuesday, November 8. 

Next step on the bloghop is the very talented Donna Bowman. Have a great weekend!
