Lawn Fawnatics Slider Card

by - October 06, 2017

Full disclosure; this was my first interactive card of any kind. I'm nothing if not ambitious, but the thought of attempting a card like this freaked me out!  After watching the perfectly crafted video below,  I gave it a try.

...Okay, got all that? Don't worry. I watched it twice, and then  again while building the slider for step by step directions. Amazingly, it was actually very doable. The toughest part for me was perfecting the size of the piece of foam tape on the penny to fit just-so in the slider space. So I just grabbed my handy hole punch. Wait, what? I do not own a hole punch...seriously. I own pretty much every other crafting/office supply item, but apparently NOT a hole punch. ugh. So I had to make my own holes which made for a not-so-great looking slider mechanism. Minor details. 
The point is, IT WORKS. My boy sheep slides right on over to my girl sheep and they share a smooch under the mistletoe held above by my little birdie wrapped in a scarf. Swoon.
After creating a winter nights sky by blending some Distress Oxide Inks (Black Soot on the corners, into Faded Jeans, into Broken china) I added some glossy accents to the bow for a little shine. Add a good pun like Fleece Navidad (HA!) embossed on a black card stock banner, and I'm sold. I placed some iridescent jewels into the sky after dotting in some stars with a white gel pen, and adhering star shaped sequins.
 I love this card so much. I will be getting a hole punch very soon to attempt a prettier slider, but this will do just fine for now. My friends and family are all impressed and my daughter thinks I'm magic. 
Thank you for reading :) Let me know what you think and how your slider turned out!
