Hey there! I’m up on the Trinity Stamps blog today with this fabulous monster rainbow slider card. I love interactive cards. This one popped in my head and I just had to create it immediately. It’s so happy and fun!
I started this fun card by using the negative of the clouds from the new Layered Lakeside Mountain Stencil to mask white I inked the panel with tumbled glass distress oxide ink. Then I die cut my slider mechanism from it. I cut another A2 size panel and inked the center with the same blue ink. This will be the inside of the slider. The card that attaches to the sliding mechanism was also inked with the same blue so it all goes together.
I moved on to my images at this point. I stamped and colored two monsters from the Monster Love stamp set along with one heart. I colored it all with copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I used the rainbow set to die cut a rainbow and a bundle of clouds. I used copics to color the rainbow pieces and adhered it all together.
With all of our pieces ready to go, I moved on to assembly. I adhered the panel which is the pull-tab for your slider to the back of the front panel and then lined it with foam tape. This was adhered to the backing panel we just inked the center of. With all of that put together I could add my images exactly where I wanted them. I used liquid glue for all of these, being careful not to glue parts that should overhang when the card is slid open. I snipped the feet of the monster hanging upside down so he could be holding onto the rainbow. I absolutely love this little detail.
I used my MISTI to stack a couple of sentiments from A Sentiment For (Almost) Everything. I left the back blank for a personal message. Lastly, I added some fun rainbow ribbon through the pull tab and tied it with a bow with some black and white baker’s twine.
I hope you enjoyed today’s fun, interactive card and found some inspiration to make something beautiful.
