Waterfall Anniversary

My brother and sister-in-law celebrated their 7th anniversary last week. I had this idea in my head to make a waterfall card depicting their life so far. I knew it would be one for the whole family to enjoy. Interactive cards are always well received. This is one of those times I love the fact that I am a stamper. How else could you get such a personalized card??
If you have never done a waterfall card before, you can check this tutorial on SCS. They are quite fun! I went with black, white and riding hood red on this one. The red panel was embossed with the Cuttlebug hearts folder. When you pull on the bottom red tab, the panels begin to flip up, so cool!
The first panel is stamped using Fairy Tale Wedding (SU retired) and Karen Foster snap stamps.
Then along came Ethan. He is a Cutie Pie!!
and then baby Logan. Or as big brother calls him " baby Oden because he can't sound out L's yet. Sheldie is their lab that has been around for some time but for sure I didn't want to leave her out.
On the pull out portion, I stamped "= happy life". Cute eh? I think they liked it even if it was a couple of days late.
Have a great weekend!
