My upline Cindy has moved into her forever home – so I decided to make her a card to congratulate her. This card was so fun to make. It’s a slider card that I somewhat modified because I didn’t want some of the stamped images to move. The video I watched to create the card can be found here. I didn’t know how it was going to end up, but I just went with it and I think it turned out great!
Since this card is a slider card, my base is just a 4.25″ x 5.5″ sheet using Soft Sky card stock. You could use a standard card base if you want the card to open for a greeting inside – but I didn’t think it was necessary for this card. For the slider base, I used a 4″ x 5.25″ sheet using Whisper White card stock. I stamped my trees and grass on this for the background image using the Sheltering Tree set, and used the cloud stamp from a kit called Hello Love. I made my cuts as described in the video, except I stopped before I cut into my clouds – I didn’t want these images to pop up in the slider portion of the card. For the slider/pop up portion of the card, I wanted to prop up some houses – so I used two images and the sentiment from a retired holiday set called Holiday Home.
I colored my houses using my Blendabilities markers and cut them out. Once all the cuts are made and the slider mechanism is done, I adhered my houses to it and cut some Wild Wasabi card stock to make grass using my fringe scissors. I made some extra cuts using some regular scissors to give it a rough look too.
Here is the card with the slider portion activated:
So stinkin’ cute!
The sentiment on the inside is from a set called Bravo. It fit in there just perfect.
Hope you enjoyed that – I sure did!
