Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing this fun card over on the Butterfly Reflections Ink, website. This card combines my love of Halloween, interactive components, cute critters and candy! What's not to love!?
Last weekend I was in Vermont on an annual craft retreat and I brought my Lawn Fawn Double Slider Surprise Die with me because, well, I've owned it for over two years now and it's high time I learned HOW to use it! I think the Lawn Fawn Double Slider Surprise is such a cool card, but I was very intimidated by putting it all together. I strongly encourage newbies to watch the Introductory Videos on YouTube by Kelly Marie Alvarez (the owner of Lawn Fawn) and they are a game changer. Whether it is the Double Slider Surprise Die, the Lawn Fawn Pivot Pop Up Die, the Lawn Fawn Magic Picture Changer Die or any other Lawn Fawn product, she walks you through step-by-step instructions on how to assemble these products. I promise, it makes all the difference and you will feel confident and be successful in putting this card together. If I can do it all by myself, so can you!
The base of my card is a smoky slate cardstock. I lined the card with a piece of chevron paper. To create the base of the Double Slider Surprise component I used an avocado green cardstock. I stamped all of the images from the My Favorite Things Frightfully Sweet stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I also added the pumpkins from the Lawn Fawn Costume Party stamp set and the ghosts are from the Lawn Fawn Happy Haunting stamp set. I colored in all of the images with Copic markers and added highlights to many of the images with a white gelly roll pen. I die cut the images using the coordinating My Favorite Things Frightfully Sweet dienamics, the Lawn Fawn Costume Party Lawn Cuts and the Lawn Fawn Happy Haunting Lawn Cuts.
I stamped the "pull here" tab on each side of the sliders in Memento Tuxedo Black ink using the Lawn Fawn Push Here stamp set.
*Tip - When you adhere the images to the two outside slider component of the card, you must adhere them directly to the card. You cannot add pop dots or foam adhesive to the sliding component, because they will no slide in appropriately!
For the front of the slider component, I added the colored images with foam adhesive and adhered the images to the card. On a scrap piece of avocado cardstock, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and adhered it to the top of the slider component with foam adhesive. Lastly, I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella of the images for added sparkle.
I hope you have enjoyed today's interactive card! After putting a few of these slider cards together over the weekend, I am no longer intimidated by assembling this die and I hope you will try it too because it really has such a "WOW" effect!
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
