Interactive airplane slider card

Interactive airplane slider card for Day 4 of the MFT March Release Countdown.

Hello again! I’m back for Day 4 of the MFT March Release Countdown with an interactive card featuring the adorable airplane from Stacey Yakula’s Sky High stamp set.

When you pull the tab, the airplane slides to the right, revealing a little hidden banner with an additional sentiment. Check it out in action, in the short video clip below.

As always, I started with the background… I used the Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink, to create a cloudy sky on my 6 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ (15,8cm x 10,8cm) panel, cut out of Smooth White Card Stock.

The mechanism is really simple. I just used a craft knife to cut a thin slit in the middle of the panel. Then I diecut a couple of the rectangular pieces from the Up & Down Interactive Die-namics, in printer paper, folded them and wrapped them around the slit.

I edited this little clip from my latest tutorial (interactive card with red balloons), so that you can better understand the assembly of these elements.

I colored the cute airplane  with the following Copic markers. I also used a silver gel pen for the bolts and some Glossy Accents for the fox’s nose.

  • airplane: R27, R24, R22, R20, B01, B01, W10, W7, C5, C3, C2, C00
  • fox: YR27, YR68, YR65, YR61, B04, B02
  • hedgehog: E53, E51, E50, R01, R00, R24, R22
  • clouds: W3, W1, W00
  • bird: C5, C3, C2, C00, R24, R22

As a last touch, I added some crystal drops and a flying bird, also from the Sky High stamp set. I hope you enjoyed today’s card. Please leave a comment and let me know if you would like me to create a tutorial for it. Don’t forget to visit the MFT Blog. Have a great day!
