A little something different today. I am sharing with you a card I did a few months ago which has been sitting on my desk waiting patiently to be posted. I’ve kept it blank for the moment & will stamp a greeting on the front once the occasion happens.
This is my version of a “Magic Card” or is it a “Sliding Card“? It could be a “Magic Sliding Card“. I’m not too sure but will let you decide for yourself.
I layed a piece of DSP over a piece of Whisper White Card, cut a circle in the centre of both pieces using the Layered Circle Framelits. I cut a frame using the same Framelit & a size larger from Bermuda Bay Card & set it aside. Also set aside the piece that you cut from the centre. This is your front DSP.
So that the DSP Images would match, I then placed the piece with the Circle cut from the middle, matched the images & drew a circle onto the 2nd piece of DSP with a Pencil. Once I had done that, I then very carefully cut the DSP down to the size I wanted still ensuring that the images matched, side to side & top & bottom..
I randomly stamped the birds across both pieces of DSP in Early Espresso Ink not too worried if they matched or not. I randomly stamped the Reeds along the bottom of the front DSP in Crumb Cake Ink before layering onto a piece of Whisper White Card & layering the Frame around the cut out circle.
For the Base Card, I cut & scored a piece of Bermuda Bay to the size I wanted, cut a circle in the front with the same circle Framelit as the DSP, adhered the extra piece of DSP from the front ensuring the DSP Images matched in & adhered the card together before layering the Front DSP to the top ensuring it all matched.
For the Inside, I created a little tab from scrap Whisper White Card, punched a small hole with the 1/16″ Handheld Punch, threaded through Linen Thread & adhered the tab to the top of a piece of Whisper White Card before layering 1 piece of the DSP over the Whisper White ensuring the bottom of the tab could not be seen.
I sure hope this is not too confusing as it has been a long time since creating it. I think I will have to create another just to refresh my memory.
Until next time, Happy Stampin’
