Floral Hello | ft. Lawn Fawn Magic Color Slider Die

Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.

Today I am beyond excited to share with you an interactive card using the Lawn Fawn Magic Color Slider die.

If you are anything like me, you've been looking at this type of card and wanting to make one but being super intimidated to do so.

I watched all the videos I could find that used this die and I couldn't wait to try it out.

I started by die cutting all my pieces from 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock. There is a "U" shaped track piece that I felt needed to be doubled up, and I'm glad I did.

Using the MISTI stamping tool I stamped and masked each of the flowers on the paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and then again on the acetate using StaZ-on black ink. Because of the overlap I stamped the middle flower both times, masked it, then moved on to the flowers on the side. While I'm sure this can be done without the use of the MISTI, I was thanking my lucky stars that I have it because my inks seem to be running low and I needed to restamp the images -- having the MISTI makes it so incredibly easy.

I used Shaded Lilac Distress ink to add colour to the frame piece. I coloured the flowers using Copic Markers.

The hello die is included with the set and I couldn't NOT use it. I die cut the word four times and stacked them up using a liquid adhesive.

Because I wanted the slider to be the star of the show, I kept the background of the card simple, but adhered a piece of Lawn Fawn patterned paper and left it at that. Everything you could possibly need for a fantastic card is included in this die set, and once you get the hang of the assembly, putting it together is like a dream.

I do recommend using a powder tool to brush the sides of the slider area so nothing sticks. I think the thing that I love best about this die set is that I am still able to make cards that can go in the mail! Even though the slider area of this card is popped up on foam tape, that is literally the only dimension that there is! I should have taken a picture of the card laying flat to show you, but hindsight and what not. I'm sure I'll be making and sharing more cards just like this one in the future so hopefully I'll remember then.

I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. Don't forget to follow me over on the right side bar so you don't miss any exciting posts!

Today I have included a short video (my first) to show you how the slider moves, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
