Roll with It Interactive card
Today I am making an interactive card creating the illusion of the roller skates moving. I started by ink-blending the background panel with distress inks. I chose Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade and Tumbled Glass. But choose any of your favorite ink colors and create a panel. Next, using the Ribbon Curls stencil (2022 release) I inked up the stencil using the same colors as the panel underneath. Over this I used Fallen Snow Glitter Glaze so that the Ribbons were glittering. I let this dry while I worked on the stamped image.
I stamped the skates and the sentiment with Raven black ink and quickly heat set it so that I could use alcohol markers to color the stamped image. Again I chose yellows, blues and bright pinks for a coordinated look. Once done, I fussy cut the image.
Next for the interactive part, I used dies that cut a slider portion out, making sure to save the slider cut out so that I could adhere it back to the card base during assembly to give a seamless look. I die cut 2 small round pieces of cardstock about 1/4 inch big. To one of these I glued the slider buttons that are just the right size to fit in the slider hole. Flipping the panel I adhered the other circular disc so that it formed a sandwich which would slide and glide in the slider bar.
Finally for the assembly I used foam tape behind the background panel making sure it was not close to the slider button mechanism. Next, I adhered and assembled the panel adding the roller skate image on top of the slider button. And that was it. Sentiment was added and a few gems glued to finish the card.
