Hi friends! Today I am sharing this spooky slider card over on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink. blog! One of the things I love most about all of the Lawn Fawn products is that they are designed to coordinate uniformly across the entire product line. This means they are perfect for mixing and matching! Even if I didn't necessarily do that on today's card, I love having that option.
I recently learned how to assemble the Lawn Fawn Double Slider Surprise Die and I've been making them ever since! You can see my others samples here and here. 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 this A2 sized card is made from black cardstock. I used a scrap piece of designer paper for the first 5 1/4" x 4" layer of this card. I wish I could tell you where this "trick-or-treat" paper came from because it's so fun, but I can't recall! I was able to assemble the surprise slider die and adhere it directly to the center of my card.
I stamped all of the images from the Lawn Fawn Spooky Village stamp set in Memento Tuxedo black ink on Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I colored in all of the images using my Copic alcohol ink markers. I added small highlights to each of the colored images with a Sakura White Gelly pen.
I die cut the grass from a celery cardstock using the Chunky Grass die from Waffle Flower. I adhered the grass to the bottom of the center component of the card and the two side pull-outs. I adhered a black chevron paper to both sides of the pull-outs when I was making the double slider surprise base. I used a piece of orange pattered cardstock for the front portion of the slider.
*As a little tip, when you begin to adhere the pieces to your card, be sure that the pieces on the slider pull-out portion of the card are adhered directly to the cardstock. You cannot put foam adhesive or pop dots on the slider because then it won't work effectively. For the front of the card, you can pop them up all you want! Lastly I stamped the sentiment "Ghostly Greetings" on a scrap piece of white cardstock also in Memento Tuxedo black ink and popped it up with foam adhesive.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
