Hi, crafty friends. I’m back today with a fun interactive card…
I’ve had THIS die for awhile now and haven’t had the time to play with it, until now. This card was fun to make. Let me start by saying that if dies like this intimidate you, give them a try anyway. I found great resources like THIS and THIS video that walks you through every step and made the process simple. I started by cutting the die pieces from white cardstock and stamping a portion of a sentiment from THIS stamp set on the top of the frame. I cut apart the stamp to make it fit the look I was going for. It’s okay to cut high quality acrylic stamps. You can always mount them back how they were originally intended.
I embossed the image from THIS stamp set using on to a sheet of THIS embossable window plastic for the window of the slider. For the slider part, I added some alcohol ink to THIS cardstock and die-cut it using the slider die. I embossed “pull here” from THIS stamp set so the recipient knows where to pull to reveal the colored image inside…
To create the colored piece, I stamped the same image on the window but using black copic friendly ink. It’s in the exact place as the window image since I used the MISTI. This makes it so easy to line up the images. After coloring with Copics, I masked off the image with THIS and stamped THIS background stamp on top using THIS ink. I added THIS on top of the umbrella and water for some shine. I also stamped the rest of the sentiment on the inside.
I adhered the slider piece to a 4 bar size note card using THIS strong adhesive. I added some red hearts cut with THIS die and added THIS on top. I finished off the card by rounding the bottom two corners of the card using THIS.
I hope this inspires you to create a magic slider card. I must warn you it’s addictive. I can’t wait to make more.
Thanks for joining me today. Have an awesome day.
