Birthday Card with simple slider

Friday, April 24, 2015

Hello friends,

I'd like to upload my newest greeting card today and to join in some challenges. This time I made a very simple birthday greeting card with a slider. The idea is like giving a present to someone and let her/him open it :) well, something like that I guess hehe.. anyway, here's the card:

This is how I made it:
First decide the size of your gift box and how you want the slider look. Myself, I made the frame and hide the gift box by making small frame that fits for the ribbon to slide. 
I measure and cut it manually with cutter.

Then make the gift box in square, colored it with water color and wrap it with ribbon embellishment which I made from fabric tape. Make sure that the size of the box is a bit bigger than the frame so it gives a tiny space to move.

Then, make the card primary base. Cut paper in rectangle form for the slider. The rectangle must have a space fit the gift box to move left and right.  On the rectangle paper, I hand draw a simple high heel stamp as the gift (this one is special for my friend Mbak Monika who loves shoes stamp and whom having a Birthday Linky Party on her blog HERE :) I created the image using a black Snowman drawing pen 0.2 and colored it with Staedler pen and Copic for the shadows.

Fold the edges of the rectangle paper. Make sure to fold and leave a space about 0,5 mm on each side so that the gift box can move to slide. When you're done, put double sided tape on each side then insert the gift box inside and test the slider by moving it left and right. 

Once you have insert the gift box, attached it to the card by turning it upside down and adjust it with the frame you made previously. Make sure that the double tape stick properly.

I hand drawn dots and small arrows with pen so the receiver can slide and open the gift box :) Oh, I forgot, before attaching the gift box, make sure to stamp the sentiment first to avoid messy result.

I decorate the bottom card with similar washi tape as the gift box.

Voila, finish and you get a very easy and simple greeting card with slider :)

Hope this is useful for you and thank you for reading my post! 
Have a great weekend everyone! :)
