Hi there! I’m starting October with lots of energy and a card for the monthly challenge at La Pareja Creativa. This time Tina asks us to make an interactive project, so I made this sweet slider card for a crafty friend’s Birthday…
I was dying to try LPC’s new products, like the adorable bears from the set Friendly Bears. I wanted to create a night time scene, so I colored them in dark tones that also suited the starry sky, cut with the Starry Night dies.
As you can see from the animated gif, the stars light up, when you pull the tag… I used this same effect (I call it “Lowcost Chibitronics” ha ha ha) to turn on the house lights in THIS Christmas card that I showed you on LPC’s blog last year.
The effect is achieved with a simple strip of yellow cardstock glued to the slider panel. One of the arrows from the new die set Arrows, was perfect for the tag that I created with the smallest die from the set Stitched Circles.
My sentiment was cut with the new die Felicidades 2, which I love! As a last detail, I added a couple of flowers cut with the set Christmas Flowers (a very versatile set of dies) in the same color as the bear’s scarf.
Here’s a step by step video tutorial of the card:
