I picked the longer of the two slider sets to work with. They are nice to use on a vertical A2 card. Let me show you my two concepts together--one using an old stamp set and another using the new sentiments from Movers & Shaker sentiments. The white panels on the front slide up to reveal a sentiment underneath.
First one to explore in detail is the card using "Wise Owl". I've pulled that out twice in the last week, amazingly enough. How about some dies Nichole:)?
Hank was invited to a birthday party this past weekend that had a bird theme. I managed to wiggle out of attending (Hun-ey I have so much work to do for PTI! You take him). I couldn't contain my giggles when the hubby walked in the door from the 4 year old's party and immediately got himself a beer and needed a little quiet time to decompress. When he was capable of coherent speech again, I learned that there was a nature program featuring a live owl. I felt like I had a slam dunk with the card at that point. YES! Score one for Hank's Mama.
Falling Leaves, Background Basics: Retro (another one you'll see more of this release from me), and the Woodgrain Impression Plate round out my owl theme. Notice how nicely a white gel pen accents the design?
Now, I did something interesting with both cards that you might not realize until you either get the dies or see the short slider die set featured. The top panel is supposed to fold in the middle and the image is suppose to flip up over the fold. I just went again and cut full size panel without scoring the fold. When pulled, the full panel goes up. Just gives you a little more room to stamp.
Here's the slider in the pulled position. Beneath is another "owl" message. Perfect for kids. And see how that front panel doesn't bend, but rather the panel underneath? I know, it's a bit confusing. But once you get these dies in your hot little hands, they are really very easy to figure out.
So are you excited or what? Brilliant concept, awesome stamps. Raises the bar yet again. Looking forward to seeing the other types of interactive cards from the girls in the morning. I have barely scratched the surface with possibilities here today.
