Hi Everyone! Got a new interactive slider card for you today. I love making interactive cards, some more fiddly than others but this one is very simple and very quick to make.
There are so many tools out there today that you can use to make your interactive card, but today I’m just using a craft knife and a pencil, making a very simple track but which fit perfectly for the card I’m making. I’ve made a video below to show you every step to make the card, and I’ll give you a couple of tips along the way.
Sometimes you get an idea to a card the first time you see the stamp set, and I knew that I just needed to make a slider card together with the super mouse from the Superpowers stamp set by Create A Smile Stamps. I wanted to make him fly over something so I dug through the other stamps I had by Create A Smile and I found the Glowing Seaside stamp set with the awesome lighthouse. That coupled with me being on vacation to the west coast of Sweden, which have loads of lighthouses really set the mood to the card and it all came together.
I decided to make a very soft background, just blending on a couple of colors of distress inks, I decided to use Mermaid Lagoon, Pumice Stone, Stormy Skies and Hickory Smoke, but after doing the blending I felt that the hill that I wanted to set the lighthouse on needed a little bit more definition. So I grabbed my trusty Copic Markers and loosely sketched it out, with just a tiny tiny blending. If you choose to do that to, remember that Copic don’t recommend you using the markers over any medias, and that drawing on top of other pigments can ruin your nibs, so it’s on your own risk you do this. Also watercolor cardstock is very porous and will use loads of your ink from your pens, but I felt safe as I used it so little.
Hope you enjoy the card and I see you next week.
