Happy Valentine’s Day + Slider Card

Buenas Everyone,

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all! May this day and everyday be filled with tons of happiness & love! Today I’ll be sharing with you another Valentine’s theme slider card. I must say this one is my favorite. I used different products from some of my favorite crafting companies to create this card.

First, I started out by cutting a front panel which measures 4.24 x 5.50″ (standard size A2) with my fiskars paper trimmer and my card base. I then used Concord & 9th Layers of Love Die to cut out the heart shape (I die cut out two). I used one the negative cut out and stamped the cute puppy from Mama a Elephant Lunar Animals Stamp Set with Antique Linen and colored him with my prisma colored pencils and the second one I used for masking. See photo below.

I used distress ink Fire Brick for the ombré look from dark on top to lightest on bottom. I adhere some double sided tape to the back of my panel to hold the negative piece (with the stamped puppy) in place and added foam tape to give some dimension for my slider piece.

I cut out my slider piece, rounded off the bottom using my We R Memory Keepers 123 Punch Board, and stamped my sentiment just in the bottom of the slider piece. For the tab to pull the slider I used one part (larger tail) of Reverse Confetti Layered Bow Die Set. At this point I already adhered my main panel to my card base and was testing the slider piece. I notice that the sentiment on the slider was showing through my front panel. At first it was fine but then it kept bugging me. I believe I slide the slider about four to six times and finally decided that I need to cover it. I didn’t want to start over so I ended up adding Yes or No to the slider piece. See photo below.

After adding the Yes No note I testing the sliding and it came out perfect! For the finishing touches I added a small heart confetti to the puppy, added some wink of Stella to the puppy and a ribbon. I hope you enjoyed this post and thanks again for stopping by! Products used will be listed below.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a beautiful day!

Xoxo,

Lydine
