I’m super excited to share today’s interactive card. I recently caved and ordered the festive wreath slider die set from Spellbinders and couldn’t wait to test it out! That paired with the new Inky Paws Challenge, I knew they had to meet.
The theme this challenge is holiday mix-up so we can create any Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas card to enter. I’ve been making so many Christmas cards lately that it was a welcome idea to back up and enjoy fall for at least one or two more cards. So, I pulled out my Autumn Mice and started coloring.
Here’s a look at the card closed up like it would be coming out of the envelope. To make it I just die cut the elements from the set and built the interactive part of the card. Then I built my wreath and attached it to the bottom half of the slider so everything still opens like it’s supposed to.
Here you can see that when you pull the tab, the window slides back and reveals this sweet sentiment that I heat embossed in white. I love the pop of deep purple against all the other fall colors in the card.
I did put this sliding mechanism on a regular white card base so that I can also write a message on the inside to the recipient but you totally wouldn’t have to. Also, the slider opening is big enough to hide a gift card inside which I think would be so much fun to give.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
