I’ve been wanting to try a hidden slider card for a while, so when I picked up the super cute Lawn Fawn “Critters in the Dog Park” stamp set I knew that adorable dachshund would be perfect for this technique. Months later, I got my first chance to use this stamp set and finally make a card (or two).
I colored up the little dog in two shades of brown (E21 and 23; E50 and 53) and just used a little touch of Glossy Accents to add a shine to their noses. To add a little reference to Valentines Day but keep this a wintery card, I added a small confetti heart in the dog’s paws.
The hidden slider card was really fun and easy to make. I followed a tutorial by my friend Jen (YT: Jen Evers) and I was able to make each card in about an hour. That is lightening fast for a slow crafter like me. 🙂 Some foam adhesive, dry embossed and inked papers (I used Tsukineko Brilliance Moonlight White for the white ink on blue card stock and Tsukineko Artnic Baby Blue for the blue ink on the white card stock) to give a little texture to the background, and some whimsical sequin snowflakes was all it really required. To add a little sparkle, I also heat embossed the top and bottom edges of the second card with a VersaMarker and Recollections Sparkling Embossing powder in “Opaque Bling” and used silver Liquid Pearls to add little snow dots on both cards.
The following is a video share of these two cards:
