I needed a card last week for my nephew's fifth birthday. I had been wanting to use my new PTI Sliders dies, and I thought they would pair nicely with Boy Basics: Frog Hop (one of those sets that I've owned for a long time, and hasn't gotten much use!). I also used Big Birthday Wishes, By the Numbers die collection, Bitty Dots paper, and the heart border die (for the small scallops).
I used both scales of the Background Basics: Medallions. On the sliders panel, I cut a 2nd panel from Hawaiian Shores and trimmed it down to just the bottom half, then stamped with the small-scale pattern. I adhered that over the Lemon Tart slider panel. I used a Limitless Layers circle to mat the number (I couldn't decide whether to use yellow or blue, so you see how I handled that... lol), and popped both the circle and the number up on foam adhesive.
I used the "hoppy day" sentiment inside the slider, and added lots of little flies to buzz around.
I don't usually do so much to the inside of my cards, but this one was a fun design to carry over to the inside. I wanted something to tuck down into the grass, and that little snail from Flutterby Friend was just perfect!
I was really pleased with how the card turned out.... and slightly panicked when my nephew opened it and started to pull/yank at the "pull here" and I was afraid he was about to rip the whole slider apparatus off the card! LOL! But I was able to show him how to gently pull it up before that happened. The slider dies are awesome - it's so easy to put together the mechanism, and it slides out just perfectly smoothly!
Thanks for stopping by!
