Hi there, Leigh here and I am thrilled to be guest designing in The Classroom, representing two of my favourite companies: Reverse Confetti and Essentials by Ellen!
I have a super cute card to share today that combines these two brands:
But wait, there's more...
It's a hidden slider card that I created using Reverse Confetti's All About Ewe stamp set and Essentials by Ellen's Swing N Slide dies by Julie Ebersole! Isn't it fun?
Here's how I made it:
I stamped my sheep on its coordinating diecut and the fence and bird from the same set onto my background panel and coloured them in using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush. I stamped the "thinking of" using Essentials by Ellen's Mondo Hydrangea in Altenew Jet Black ink. I used one of the Essentials by Ellen's Swing N Slide dies by Julie Ebersole and diecut it from a piece of white cardstock.
On another strip of cardstock, I wrote "ewe" by hand. I placed this behind my diecut piece of cardstock and ran a strip of dimensional adhesive on both sides of it, making sure it can easily slide back and forth.
I flipped it over an added two little pieces of dimensional adhesive onto my strip. When, I diecut my sheep, I didn't diecut all the way to its hooves, so I could extend the die a little (you could always just adhere strips to the back of the sheep as well.) I adhered the sheep's strips to the dimensional adhesive.
Now, when I pull on the strip, the sheep slides across the card.
I adhered my panel to my card base, where I stamped the fence and bird.
Then, I added more dimensional adhesive to the front of the panel, making sure not to put it along the top, where it would interfere with the sheep's movement.
Over this, I adhered my green panel, having made sure ahead of time that the strip lines up with the sentiment on the front.
When I showed my card to my daughter, she especially loved the fact that the sheep's slide reveals the little bird on the fence -- a fun surprise!
Thanks for looking!
