Make It Monday #293 - Color Slider Cards

Hello friends.  Lizzie Jones is hosting this weeks Make It Monday challenge and shows us how to make an interactive slider card with color.

This was definitely a FUN challenge and I've been having a good time pulling on the slider piece to reveal the colored image...guess I'm just a kid at heart!!  I decided to use the Summer Hills stamp set for my card as the main image in the set is an outline stamp and is also small enough to fit in the 2 1/2 wide width of the frame piece.


Here it is all closed up and layered against a Harvest Gold piece of DSP.  And because I'm still in love with that tiny little banner die from the Stemmed Statements set, I had to add that to my card for the sentiment along with some black & white bakers twine.  I love how everything is black & white except for the piece of DSP when the tab isn't pulled!



And here's the card with the tab fully pulled up.  After I got the whole frame closed up I thought about adding glitter or sequins, but then thought that might have tripped the sliding part up...might have to try another one to see if that would work though!  :0)

Still time to play along, so check out Lizzie's video and beautiful card right HERE and then join in the FUN!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!

  3. This is beautiful. I'm too intimated to try this technique right now. I have had a crazy, busy week and I'm running short on patience so I'm planning to sit this one out! But you've mastered the technique perfectly!

  4. This is so adorable. I did give this a try but was not able to put something together. I think it is similar to shaker cards which I rarely do cause I just have a hard time putting them altogether. I guess I just like easy and CAS....

  5. How pretty!! I like this card with the scene compared to the flower. Great job on the colors. I think you might be right about sequins trapping the slider but some glitter pens would provide your bling!!

  8. I think we're ALL kids at heart with this one! So glad you chose this image. Still playing with technique, and love the Summer Hill set. Your sweet little banner is another favorite! All so summery against the yellow. Perfectly pretty snapshot of summer, Marcia.
