Magical Fairy with Hidden Slider
by Jennifer Svare

Slider5

Hello!  I hope everyone is enjoying the slider week so far!  I have really enjoyed seeing all of the beautiful and fun designs.  I've always loved sliders, but they have seemed intimidating to me, so I never tried one until now.  I'm so glad I did!  They are not at all as difficult as I had imagined.  Super easy and fun.  I used the Straight Slider Grooves craft dies to create the slider track.

The slider track on this card is hidden behind the front frame.  The ribbon on the right pulls the message tab out, moves the fairy, and also reveals colorful dots of "Show" along the way!

When closed, there are no colors, but as the fairy slides along, colorful dots of "snow" are revealed along the way.

The Wintertime Fairies set is so cute and has so many possibilities.  I can't wait to incorporate more of these adorable designs perfect for sider cards!

Interactive cards are so fun! But creating from scratch can be difficult and time consuming. Now, thanks to Poppystamps Straight Slider Grooves dies, you can make a fun, interactive slider card in a matter of minutes!

I paired the Straight Slider Grooves dies with the new Wintertime Fairies stamps to create two cards with interactive fairies that slide across the card.

These new slider dies are the perfect compliment to any character or critter stamp set, but I loved pairing them with the Wintertime Fairies! And of course it is never too early to start making holiday cards!
