T-Slider Birthday Card featuring Sweet Cake Stamp Set


I want to feature some more products from Stampin' Up!'s OCCASIONS MINI CATALOGUE as it is only current until the end of  April!    So for now I want to return to the SWEET SHOP {Product Suite pg 32 - 36}and show you another idea!

I am using the SWEET CAKE Stamp Set - I really like this set because a) it has a large size stamp and b) the 3 sentiments are all-around good ones to have  and c) the sentiments look really nice in the little frame underneath the cupcake image.  I am using some of the SWEET SHOP Designer Series Paper.  

Lastly...I found a 'sweet' spot to use a charm from the TRINKET HEARTS set.  See pg 26 of the mini!  

And all this is for one special reason -

Of course I want to make it special and to dig up something different, I spent about an hour surfing the net and that is how I cam e across this fascinating " interactive " technique!!  I watched a YouTube project which
showed how to do a T-SLIDER  CARD.  Its a Splitcoaststampers video  which you may want to watch.  My next post I am going to show the steps I took to make this card so you might want to check in again here.  I have to say this technique is either easy or hard - depending on your experience. I found it hard to follow the steps in the video but that's just me. Once I broke it down correctly and if I repeat the project again , I think it is actually an easy card but which takes patience and time.  BUT THE RESULTS ARE WORTH IT!   IT IS A WOW STYLE CARD!!!  


There it is!   Her Birthday Party Hat is in the background all ready to use for her birthday party!  

Now here is the fun part - she pulls the tab on the right side, and the front panel comes forward revealing the surprise element beneath......


So come back to benefit from the photos I took as I made this card - I'll post those next! 
Also I developed a little 'trick' of my own to share :)

Oh - and don't forget, we've only....15 days of our Mini Catty left!!!!  

Thanks for coming by!!!!
