Happy Heart Day Series | Kisses Magic Slider ft. Lawn Fawn "Sealed with a Kiss"
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
For every series, I try to do at least one (or maybe two) interactive cards. I love this type of card because they're so fun! Getting a card is nice, getting a handmade card is better, getting an interactive handmade card is the best. They take a bit more time, but the results are absolutely worth it. As a card maker you feel more accomplished and as the recipient, you know how much effort was put in.
To create this card, I cut down a piece of patterned heart paper and adhered it to the front of a standard A2 sized card base. I then cut down a piece of vellum to the same size and put that over top. This step isn't really necessary, but the paper was pretty busy so I wanted to mute that down a bit.
I cut out all the pieces I needed using Lawn Fawn's "Magic Color Slider" die set and began stamping my images. For stamping on the acetate, I used StazOn Black ink. StazOn is a solvent ink that will dry on smooth surfaces. If you are using a different kind of ink and finding that it smudges, give this ink a try.
I stamped the remaining images from Lawn Fawn's "Sealed with a Kiss" set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock. I coloured all the images ink with Copic markers then masked them off, so I could sponge the background.
I started with Spun Sugar Distress Ink, but found that was too light, so I added Worn Lipstick to the edges and pulled that in until I got a blend I liked.
The outline of the seal on the right and the word "Sealed" are darker because of the extra layer of ink.
Once the slider was done, I adhered that to the front of my panel.
If you are having trouble making your slider card slide, I recommend cutting a second channel piece from the dies (that's the one that looks like a U, I have found that doubling the channel pieces allows for a much smoother slide.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar or over on Facebook, so you don't miss any future posts. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
