Hello there, Christine here, with an interactive mini slimline card. I love the new Boo Brew die set, such a cute little ghost that I wanted to highlight on this card.
First I die cut two mini slimline panels using 2 of the dies from the Dainty Scallop Edge Mini Slimline die set- one out of light purple cardstock (Lawn Fawn) and dark purple cardstock. I die cut the ghost, cup and leaf with the new Boo Brew die set.
Then I wanted to make an interactive card with a slider so I used 2 dies from the Slimline Twist & Slide die set. I did partial die cutting to make a small track. I also used the tab die to make a notch in the top of the card; finally I cut the longer strip that can be pulled out with the tab attached. The easiest way to prepare the slider portion of the card is to flip it over and tape it temporarily to the card panel. This allows you to flip it over and attach a slider element (I used one from My Favorite Things) to the slider pull tab. Then you can attach the element that will be dragged back and forth to the slider element (see photo above). I used Gina K Connect glue (or use a similar strong adhesive) to connect the ghost to the slider element and the slider element to the pull tab.
You want to make sure that the slider moves up and down easily, so it is best to place bumpers (foam strips) on either side of the pull tab (see photo above). Adding double sided adhesive foam strips does 2 things- it lifts up the panel off the card base, so that the pull tab can move unobstructed and it contains the movement of the pull tab, by ensuring that it does not move all over the card.
Then I placed the cup in a position to cover most of the ghost, so he is hidden from view. I added the remainder of the details and die cut the sentiment “BOO” out of glitter cardstock with the Marshmallow Alpha dies. Finally I die cut a leaf with the Cut and Foil Oak Leaf die set.
Thank you for stopping by- I hope that you will give making an interactive mini slimline card a try.
