The fun thing about this card is that the prince and princess can move closer and closer together until they are standing side by side! I have to give my friend credit for the idea, but I adore it! I started by stamping and coloring the castle, grass, rocks and little flowers. Next I cut a slot using a ruler and Exacto knife. MFT has some dies that would make this step a lot easier. I didn't have them then, but I have them now! They are called Surf & Turf Die-namics. They also have little Slider Elements to use on the back of shapes that allow them to move easily on the card. I did have these and I used them!
Once the slot was finished, I placed the prince where I wanted him, flipped the card over and glued a slider element onto him within the slot opening. I did the same for the princess. Then I put a lot of foam tape around the outer edges and along the slot of the piece and stuck it onto the base card. Last of all I glued the piece that I'd removed for the slot back into place to make the castle look whole.
It is really fun to play with this card and to move the prince and princess toward and away from each other! I finished the card off with some clouds from MFT and the greeting which comes from a set of stamps and dies from Papertrey Ink called Swoosh Stamp Set.
I will definitely be making more interactive slider cards! They are really easy and fun!!
Thanks for visiting! Happy New Year!!
