Hi there! It’s time for another interactive card tutorial on the MFT YouTube Channel! This time I made a simple slider card with paint brushes that I hope you’ll enjoy.
Before I get into details, let’s check it out in action, in the video clip below:
When we pull on the slider panel, the paint brushes slide across the panel, revealing strokes of paint and a nice three word sentiment. Even though the mechanism is really simple, the effect is quite stunning, isn’t it?
It was so much fun to die cut and assemble the brushes as well as adding some realistic touches. For the wood effect I used the following Copic markers: E57, E55, E53. I forgot to mention a little tip in case you want to mail the card (it can get a little squished) and you don’t want the brush handles to catch on the edge of the rectangular windows… you can adhere white enamel dots to the back of the holes of the handles.
As I mention in the tutorial you can easily adapt the mechanism to a slimline card and use only one brush and a longer sentiment. You could also decorate the panel with the Distressed Patterns or Abstract Art stamp sets. I used matching enamel dots instead.
That’s all for today… Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
