Sliding 9th Birthday Card [PTI Blog Hop]
I so LOVE getting things done ahead of time, mostly because it never happens so when it does I really feel good! Papertrey's February blog hop challenge is to make an interactive card. Great timing. I read the blog post, and an hour later my doorbell rang with the latest shipment from Papertrey! Interactive cards are perfect for grabbing the attention of kids. So I decided to make an interactive card for a birthday that's 2 weeks away (in my world, this is ridiculously early!)
The card lies flat, then when you "pull here" it pops up the main design.
You do need to do a little pre-planning when using the Movers and Shakers: Sliders die. I'd suggest assembling the slider, then marking with a pencil how far it pulls out so that your sentiment is completely visible. I cut it a little too close.
There's a YouTube tutorial that Papertrey did on how to use the dies.
Of course, can't forget about the inside.
This was a fun card to make. Hope darling Tessa likes it! Thanks for looking.
