Interactive Halloween slimline card

Interactive Halloween slimline card for MFT.

Hello there! For this month’s video tutorial on the MFT YouTube Channel I created an interactive Halloween slimline card.

Iteractive Halloween slimline card tutorial by Laura Dovalo.

It features stamps from the adorable BB Witch Way Is the Candy stamp set as well as dies from the Everything but the Broom Die-namics. Let’s have a look at the card in action:

As you can see, the mechanism is really simple. When we pull the slider panel, the bubbles are highlighted and a cute frog appears from inside the witche’s cauldron.

In the video, I share the step by step process so that you can create your own interactive Halloween slimline card. If you want to make it even simpler you can skip the frog or use a magnet instead of a strip of acetate or card stock, to attach it to the slider panel.

For my ink blending I used the following premium dye inks: Boysenberry, Grape Jelly and Grapesicle for the sky (and slider panel) and Field DayJalapeño Popper and Sour Apple, for the ground. I also applied a strip of Limelight (the bubbles) to the slider panel.
