MFT Card Kit Countdown Day 2

Hello everyone! Welcome to Day 2 of MFT Card Kit Countdown. Today, I used the Furever Friends stamp set to make a fun hidden slider card. 


***The links to the products I used are at the bottom of this post***

To begin, I stamped and colored the dogs from the Furever Friends stamp set with Copic markers. I cut them out with the coordinating dies.

 I trimmed two Bristol cardstocks to an A2 size. I die-cut the first cardstock twice using the Grassy Hills Die-namics. Then, I ink blended the die-cut grass panels and the second trimmed cardstock with Distress Oxides and Distress Inks as shown. Once dried, I stamped the sentiment on the shorter grass panel and heat set white embossing powder. This is where I should have added some splatters of water with a sprayer to add texture, but I did this later in my cardmaking.



I built the slider on the taller grass panel. I added two layers of mounting foam tape to the front and the back of that panel. I added a small strip of acetate to the sliding mechanism to make stilts for the image (more on this later).  I adhered the taller panel to the card front. Then, I adhered the shorter grass on top of the taller grass (this hides the slider panel).


Going back to the acetate I mentioned earlier, I made it so that it will stick up above the shorter grass panel, so that I could adhere the dog onto it. Before adhering the dog to the acetate, I added mounting tape to the back side of the acetate (without peeling off the backing on the other side) to keep the dog leveled as he slides back and forth (see photo above). 


To help create my scene, I added some die-cut clouds and a sun. I also added the trees I made using the Modern Trees stamp set and coordinating dies. To finish, I adhered all the images to the panels and stamped a paw print next to the sentiment.
