Hello, crafty friends. I’m back today to share a Christmas card that presents a gift card in a fun way…
To create this card, I cut a panel of THIS card stock to 4.25 x 5.5 inches. I die-cut THIS die from the center and cut a white panel of card stock to 3.25 x 5 inches. I adhered the white panel to the back of the gray panel at the bottom crease line only using THIS strong adhesive. You don’t want to glue anywhere else or you will not be able to slide the card open. I adhered the piece on to a gray note card using THIS adhesive. The card seems to slide better when there is dimension in between.
On the front of the gray panel, I adhered two black strips of card stock to the top and bottom of the middle rectangle piece as well as a stamped piece in the center. I stamped paw prints from THIS background stamp. I only adhered it at the bottom fold of the center so the card would open easily. I die-cut THIS dog die from a variety of card stock to and used red for the eye to resemble the Target dog since that was the gift card that I placed inside.
I created a “pull here” tab on the top using THESE circle dies and stamped the sentiment from THIS stamp set. When the recipient pulls the tab, the window slides and pops up to reveral the gift card…
I added some of THIS to the dog’s eyes and nose and stamped a coordinating sentiment from an older stamp set on the front of the card as well as the inside to tie it all together (the stamp set is no longer available).
Here’s a closer look…
I hope this inspires you to create an interactive sliding pop up card. The die makes it so easy to do.
I found THIS video from Jennifer McGuire extremely helpful when assembling this card.
Thanks for visiting me today. Have a great day!
