Teachers Day cards - waterfall card

Teachers day cards
Teachers day cards
Teachers day is celebrated on Sept 5th in India and though I usually make special cards for my daughters teachers this time it was a struggle as my daughter is in a new school this year and she has 10 teachers! In the rush I didnt take photos of all the layers of this waterfall teachers day card!
Teachers day cards
My daughter loves interactive and pop up cards and I made the inside of the waterfall card special by making a honey comb orange pop up card. [Here is the link to  Honey comb pop up card tutorial]
Used the beaded flowers tutorial to make the beaded flowers on our waterfall. 
We didnt make 10 cards  as my daughter was quite particular  she wanted cards for only 6 of her teachers! Managing to make 6 cards in one go was tough for me...Hats off to those talented souls who make cards for exhibitions and client orders!!How do you guys manage it?!!
I am still not happy with this one as I couldnt put my whole heart into it !!
