Hello my friends and happy Monday to you! I hope you had a great weekend! I was very busy this past Saturday at our 5th Annual Christmas Stamp-a-Stack in Suffield, Connecticut. I can't believe we've been doing this for five years now! We had about 40 ladies turn out for the afternoon and it was a lot of crazy
Sunday I had high hopes of resting until I remembered that I had to cut kits for a class at the West Springfield Library tomorrow night and kit for my Salted Backgrounds Technique class on Wednesday night.
Thursday I shall rest! And rest I will, because we leave for our 3-day craft retreat to the Berkshires on Thursday!!
Today I'm sharing with you my FIRST slider card! Since I own a lot of Lawn Fawn and MFT Stamps, I thought I'd finally purchase the Lawn Fawn Slide On Over dies (pre-budget!) and I love them! They make creating slider cards really easy.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Smoky Slate cardstock. Using the Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Nesting dies from Gina Marie Designs, I cut a piece of Real Red cardstock to layer over the card base. Using a piece of plaid paper from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Christmas series, I cut a sheet of 5 1/4" x 3 paper to line the back of the mountains with. Using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Mountains Borders, I die cut the mountains from Whisper White cardstock and added Basic Gray cardstock mountain tops. I made sure to leave enough Whisper White on the bottom to die cut the slider. I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink on the lower righthand corner of the Whisper White cardstock. On a separate scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the polar bear and the signpost in Tuxedo Memento Black ink and colored them in with Spectrum Noir markers. I added the signpost to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. I added the "slide me" tag from Lawn Fawn's new Push Here stamp set to the bear, so the recipient would know he moves! Lastly, I added lots of Clear Wink of Stella to make everything sparkle like winter!
Create a slider card:
As shown below in the sample image on the left, you place the piece you want sliding (for my card it was the polar bear) on top of a penny and then place a pop dot on one side of the penny. Put the pop dot through the slider and then add anther penny (image on the right). You will then put additional pop dots on the backside of the card before adhering it to the card base. These extra pop dots will raise the card enough so that the slider can move freely. *Remember you are looking at this image from the backside.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
