Camp Create 2017: Sensational Sliders


Hi Everyone!

Today's challenge for My Favorite Things'  Camp Create is to create a card with an interactive slider element.  This is a new to me project because I really don't tend to do anything interactive on a card other than maybe make a pocket for a gift card.  Because of this, I don't own any types of products to create movement on my cards.  I was able to put something together though, that I think works pretty well and uses the things that I already own.  Always a good thing, right? :).   


I'll take you through the steps to create this card:

I first cut out a frame using some paper from Tiny Check: Brights and the Inside and Out Stitched Rectangles from My Favorite Things.  I used the first two largest rectangles.


I adhered the frame to another frame cut with heavier cardstock to give it some strength.   I also used the second largest rectangle to cut out a piece of paper from the Plaids 6x6 pad.  This is the backdrop to the gift card.


I adhered the plaid piece to the front of a white notecard and put my "gift card" over it.  


Next, I put foam tape around my frame leaving one end without it.  This will be where the slider goes.


I then adhered the frame over the top of the plaid piece on the front of the card.


To create the slider, I cut out a piece of white cardstock with the second largest Inside Out Stitched Rectangle and adhered a file tab from Blueprints 9 to it.  


I decorated it with all kinds of coffee embellishments from MFT.


I then tucked it into the frame so it covers the gift card completely.


You can then, pull the coffee cup or the tab to reveal the gift card!


Super cute and you can decorate your slider piece to go with whatever gift card you have hiding underneath.

I put a quick little video on my Instagram to show you how it works.  Click here to take a peek.
