Hi crafty friends! As you may know, I love superhero cards, so when I nabbed the Heffy Doodle Superdudes set for the recent collab with Time for Tea Designs, I couldn’t stop at just one card!
To make this interactive card, I started by ink blending a panel of smooth white card with various blue distress oxides: mermaid lagoon, blueprint sketch and chipped sapphire. I then added in some black soot around the top edges. Next up, I stamped the cityscape along the bottom with black ink. I used a stamp positioner, as I had to stamp several times to get a really good, solid impression over the inky background.
I then used a small foam dauber to apply embossing ink through my Simply Radiant stencil, and applied Frosted Glass embossing powder on the top, and set with my heat gun.
Then, I created my interactive element using the Pull Tab dies from T4TD. To do this, you cut a track in the card where you want your interactive element to go, create a strip to sit behind it that your element will attach to, then cut a notch from the side and add a pull tab to slide the element left to right. For a more detailed look at how to do this, check out this blog post or this video. Once made, I attached my card panel to my card blank with doubled-up foam tape, to give the slider element plenty of room to move. I left a nice white border around the edges, so the colours of the card really popped in contrast.
I then stamped, coloured and fussy cut my superhero and attached him to the interactive slider.
Finally, for the sentiment, I heat embossed “have a” and “birthday” from the Superdudes stamp set on to some black card, then die cut the Super from holographic cardstock, and stacked it on to a couple of white die cuts for some added dimension. I added the Super with liquid glue, and the rest of the sentiment with foam tape.
Hope you like this card as much I liked making it! See you all soon – and if you like any of the T4TD supplies used in this card, discount code T4TJAYNE10 will get you 10% off in the Time for Tea online store.
