Pop up slider card

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me today, it’s been a while!

I thought I’d share with you a card I made recently for my daughter’s friend’s birthday. He loves dinosaurs, so I had to get them in somewhere!

To make this card, I die cut and assembled a slider mechanism using the Heffy Doodle double slider mini dies – there’s a great video on their website / YouTube showing you how to do this.

I then stamped out three of the present boxes from the Popping By stamp set (also from HD), coloured them, and stacked them in a pyramid. I cut a notch from the bottom of the presents where the pull tab was going to go, and a green pull tab semi-circle.

I placed my double slider mechanism behind the presents, using foam tape doubled up to adhere it in place. This gives the slider room to move freely. I did have to trim down the little panels on the mechanism so they wouldn’t be poking up above the first row of presents, but it was still sturdy enough! Then I glued the little green tab with the arrow into the notch at the bottom to make it clear what to do!

Next, I stamped out one of the dinosaurs from My Favorite Things’ A-roar-able Friends stamp set, and the lid of the present from the HD set. I coloured both with Copics, then glued the present lid to the top of the dinosaur’s head and glued him into place on the pop-up slider when it was fully extended. I made sure to test it out so that the present lid would sit right on top of the box when the mechanism was closed.

For my background, I used Concord and 9th die inks to ink blend a rainbow of colours through the Heffy Doodle balloon stencil. The colours I used were: Poppy, Marmalade, Buttercup, Sprout, Aqua Sky and Eggplant.

I then fixed my presents to the background with more doubled-up foam tape (making sure not to get any on the mechanism or it won’t pop up!) and finished off with a pre-printed sentiment strip from Simon Says Stamp that I trimmed right down.

I also added a sentiment from the MFT stamp set to the inside of the card to tie the whole thing together.

Thanks again for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon 😊
