Stamp Club Slider Card
Hello, craft friends! Its Marie Nicole again on the blog and today I'll be sharing a card that features the December Stamp Club Stamp! The stamp club subscription features one 2x3 stamp set each month for only $5, and that includes shipping! Along with your monthly stamp you will receive 10% off ANY in store purchase at ANY time, so the STAMP CLUB is a fantastic value!
For December, the stamp is this darling little hot air balloon. I love making interactive cards, and this balloon was just begging to be a slider! Sliders can sometimes look intimidating, but they can be achieved quite simply.
Before we get to the slider portion of this card, let me talk about the background! The background here was created with the new CLOUDS BACKGROUND STAMP. I had a fun little craft session with my 3yr old, and he wanted to use paints with my brayer. So we squished a little paint down onto my craft mat, my son rolled out the paint, and we made prints with some regular cardstock. Hayden loved this messy, creative freedom!
I loved the way this print came out with the clouds stamp, so I set it aside to dry knowing I just had to use it on a card! It was the perfect background for this hot air balloon!
I stamped out the balloon in DETAIL INK, and then colored the lettering in with my STYLEFILE MARKERS. I also put a coat of Wink of Stella over the whole balloon, because I love me some shimmer! Knowing that I wanted this to be a slider card, I also added some ribbon to the top of the balloon so that I could pull it up and down.
The slider part of the card is made by just cutting a strip of the background paper the length of the card. Make sure it is wide enough to add some foam adhesive to each side. Then, I punch a hole in each end with a regular hole punch, and using my kraft knife and a ruler, I connect the holes to create a sliding "track". After your track is cut out, flip the piece over, add your adhesive on each side. Then, add a double layer of adhesive to your balloon and make sure that the adhesive can fit into the track. To hold the balloon in place, I added a piece of cardstock to the back. You wont see this cardstock, but if you make it a little bigger than the track, it will keep the balloon in place as it slides up and down.
To finish my card, I added some BOTTLE CAP SEQUINS. I love how this card came out! The background made by my son gives it just a little bit more special value to me.
