Interactive double slider Halloween card tutorial for MFT

Interactive double slider Halloween card created for MFT.

Hello! I’m back with an interactive double slider Halloween card tutorial that I made for the MFT YouTube channel.

As soon as I saw the Ghostly Greetings stamp set, I knew that I wanted to have those cute ghosts appear from behind the tombstones. The best and easiest way that I found, was using a double slider mechanism. Although I love the Double Slider Loop Slots Die-namics, I didn’t use any dies for this mechanism. It’s really easy to make, so do check out the tutorial, even if you’re not an interactive card fan like me.

Before telling you a little bit more about the card, let’s see it in action!

To create the background, I used the Rolling Clouds Stencil and two tones of Distress Oxide Inks; Seedless Preserves and Victorian Velvet. My blending brush had some blue on it from a previous project, which affected the colors a little bit. For the grass panel, I used Evergreen Bough and Bundled Sage Distress Oxide Inks. The sentiment is also from the Ghostly Greetings stamp set. I stamped it with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
