Fairy Magic Window Slide & Reveal Card

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Maryann Einam our challenge hostess for the month finishes off the month with one last challenge.

According to the days of the year calendar today is Tooth Fairy Day. For our challenge this week we are to create a card which includes a fairy.

Everyone who knows me knows how much I love interactive cards of any type. While wasting some time on Facebook recently I came across a die set to create a Magic Windows Slide & Reveal Card which was designed by Angela Poole in the UK. Of course I had to check it out and it landed in my cart! So that is what I have used for my card today.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

For this style of card by sliding the tab the picture that is showing on the card dissolves and is replaced by another picture. Here you can see my card is halfway though the changing of the photo so you can see part of both pictures.

Back in December, Hero Arts monthly card kit was a fairy theme. Knowing that I had a fairy themed challenge coming up, I decided to subscribe to the kit which is what I have used here.

Each of the two fairy scenes were created on white circles and then adhered to their red card base before die cutting each of the scenes using the relevant die. The centre circle is needed in the design, so to enable me to create my scene without placing an image in the centre area, I die cut a circle from vellum and then used the small circle that also comes in the die set to draw a circle in the centre of the vellum circle. I then used my MISTI to hold each of my circles and overlay the vellum circle while working out the placement of each of the images before adding it to my scene. There is lots of masking to create both scenes.

Due to the size of the die used for the Magic Slide & Reveal Card, this card is fairy large. The finished size of my card is 17cm (6 5/8 inch) square.

For the inside of my card I added a sentiment, fairy and dandelions to the card.
