Today's card is a double challenge card. At Scrappin' n Chattin' on Yahoo Groups, I am in an Every Day Card Challenge for Christmas cards. Over at Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog, our challenge is to make a slider card. Sherri found these great directions on You Tube ~Click Here~ for making these fun cards. This is my first ever slider card. It was fun to do :)
I started working on my project in my so organized craft room ~laughing hysterically~. It is hard for me to believe that I actually cleaned my entire room 2 weeks ago. From the looks of this photo, it looks like a hurricane hit recently.
As I was working away, I looked down to find my Boxer Scooby Doo asleep in Hailey's little dog bed. You see Hailey is always in the craft room with me, and normally, I am trying to get her out of my chair. She loves to sit right behind my back. In fact, that is where she is as I type this. A 100# Boxer Dog doesn't fit well in a Puggle bed. LOL
So back to my card. I used another Magnolia image, and of course, she is colored using my Copic Sketch Markers :) I added some Stickles Glitter Glue and some bling from the Copic Spica pens.
The slider part is so cool. You will see the "secret" is a plastic shopping bag if you watch the video. Here is the the card closed:
And then sliding a little ways:
And then all the way open:
Since I added so many pictures, I won't bore you with all the directions! The papers are from Imaginisce. The ribbon is Offray. The button is from Making Memories. The stamp sentiments are from Inkadinkado and Papertrey Ink. I used Memento Bamboo Leaves ink for the sentiment, and Colorbox Chalk Ink in Olive for inking the sentiment edges. For the Magnolia image, I used the Ranger Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass) for the edges. I also used a white gel pen from Inksentials for accenting the image. Of course, all coloring was done with my Copic Sketch Markers~
