Happy Birthday Snail

Hi there,

it's Tanja here. Did you see the lovely new Gerda Steiner Designs Turtley Great stamp set? I created this hidden slider channel card using the cute little snail from the set:


  • create a hidden slider card using watercolor cardstock, Distress Ink Tumbled Glass and the My Favorite Things Cloud stencil for the background; the Memory Box Modern Landscape die, the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die, one of the My Favorite Things Stitched Snowdrift dies, kraft cardstock and patterned paper from the ModaScrap Color of Puppies Boys 6x6 paper pad for the landscape
  • furthermore, you need one of the Lawn Fawn Slide on over dies to cut the hidden slider channel
  • I followed these instructions by Karolyn Loncon from Paper Therapy to create the mechanism
  • stamp the "Pull Here" from the Lawn Fawn Push Here set with Versafine Clair Morning Mist
  • stamp the snail and the present from the new Gerda Steiner Designs Turtley Great set and color the images with Derwent Inktense pencils and a damp watercolor brush
  • add some sparkle with the Nuvo Midas Touch Shimmer Pen
  • cut out the CUTplorations happy from kraft cardstock and patterned paper from the same patterned paper pad and add the "Birthday" using a label maker
You should really try to create this stunning mechanism. Who doesn't love an interactive card?
Hugs,
