I'm Wheely Glad We're Friends (Slider Shadow Box Card) - MFT July Release Launch

Hello everyone!  The time has finally come to shop for all the newest products from MFT Stamps!  You can click HERE to head over to the MFT Online Boutique.  I have a really fun card to share with you today.  I had this idea in my head the moment that I saw the "Greatest Show" Stamp Set but I wasn't sure if it would work.


It's a Slider Shadow Box Card!  Yes, there's actually a hidden slider component behind the grass that coordinates with the pull tab on the side.  It actually worked easier than I had hoped and it's simply a basic hidden slider with a slit in the side of the shadow box.  Here's a video (below) of the card in action.  It's really so much fun!




I first stamped my images onto a sheet of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Copic friendly Black Ink.  I then colored the images with Copic Sketch Markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.



For the Shadow Box portion, I used measurements that I had used in a previous card that you can find HERE.



I used the Cloud Stencil with some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink for the sky and for the grass, I blended some Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Forest Moss Distress Inks for the grass.  I used the Grassy Hills to cut these grass pieces out.



As you can see, for the slider mechanism, I simply cut a slit into the side of the Shadow Box card to allow movement.



I used a piece of acetate for the strip attached with some strong adhesive and one of the Spin & Slide Discs.



And the nice thing is that this card still folds to fit perfectly into a 5 x 7 envelope!
