It’s been a while since my last “real” blog entry, but I’ve been super busy over at Tarjeteamos (online card classes in Spanish) were we recently launched a new interactive class. I made 18 different cards for it! Today I’m finally back at my blog with this slider card with growing flowers…
When I saw Lawn Fawn’s “Little Flowers” die set, I could picture the growing flowers in my head. It was pretty clear to me that I had to use a double slider mechanism to make this card a reality.
I haven’t participated in a challenge in forever, but I was very much inspired by the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 29 – Inspiration Board for the colors and feel of my card:
Especially the first picture of the growing grass and blue sky and the second picture with the soft browns and blues, got my creative juices flowing. I didn’t add any water, though, so my card might not even qualify. Here’s what happens when the pull tab is pulled:
A secret message is revealed and the flowers grow almost two inches, probably due to some magic dust that the adorable fairies sprinkled… To find out how I made this cute interactive card, please watch the video below or at my Youtube channel. Also, at the end of this post, you’ll find the measurements and a complete list of supplies.
