Happy Friday to you all! I have some fun cards to share today. I’m using a die set from Lawn Fawn called Magic Color Slider. I actually won this die set from Jennifer McGuire’s blog last December. This was the first time I won anything, and I was so excited!! Thank you, Jennifer!! The set includes three different window frame dies, so I decided to create a card for each window!
This is what the set looked like before I opened it and started snipping the dies apart.
It took some time to chose the colors of cardstock I wanted to use and die cut them, but here are my cards all cut out. It looks complicated, but once you create one, you get the hang of it, and it’s smooth sailing from there.
I used a Mini Misti to stamp the images onto Neenah White 110 pound cardstock using MFT’s Extreme Black Ink. While the images where on the Misti door, I switched out the cardstock for a piece of acetate the same size and stamped the images again. I used Stazon Ink to stamp on the acetate. I used two different inks because Stazon is not Copic friendly, and I wanted to color all these images with Copics.
Once all my coloring was finished, I started to assemble my cards. I put dot liner on the back of the colored panels, aligned them through the window, and then pressed them into place. To align the acetate, I put down skor tape around the inside of the windows, peeled off the release paper, placed the acetate over the colored images so they aligned perfectly, and then closed the frame onto it.
Before sealing the sliders together, I made sure to put in my white slider piece, and then adhered the two sides together with more skor tape. I pulled the white slider up and down a few times to get it slide smoothly. These cards can be so addictive to play with!! Lol!! I added my sentiments and embellishments on the outside of the slider elements and then adhered them all onto card bases. Some crafters don’t attach them onto card bases, which is fine, but I wanted to make them into mini cards and enable them to stand up.
Here is the video I created for these cards! You can watch it here or over on my YouTube Channel in HD.
Thank you for visiting! Have a nice weekend!!
