So onto my Bellarific Friday card. This week's challenge was to create a shaker or spinner card. I present to you my SLIDER card...I completely misread the challenge. Technically, the pinata will spin all the way around, lol!!
I stamped and colored the images using my Copic markers. Next I fussy cut each image leaving a small white border. For the background a choose a fun patterned paper that has a slight ombre. I then used a rectangle die to cut it just smaller than an A2 size card. For the slider, I used a fun die from MFT that cuts perfect slider tracks. I made sure to keep the cut portion so that I could adhere it back into the slider track. I then applied a double layer of foam tape all over the back of the panel making sure there was room around the slider track.
For the slider mechanism, I die cut a flower using a Stampin' Up punch and I glued a piece of twine to the back so that I could attach it to the pinata. I then die cut two small circles. The first one was glued to the back of the flower. Next I grabbed a Spin and Slide Disc and glued it to the circle. These are awesome little 1/4" plastic circles that make creating a slider so easy! Once this was attached to the back of the flower, I stuck it into the slider track and then adhered the second circle to the back side of the disc so that it stays in the track and slides. Before sticking the panel down, I lined up and adhered that cut piece of patterned paper I had saved earlier to go behind the slider track. I then adhered the whole panel which had the double layer of foam tape.
I love the sentiment that came with this set but it wouldn't fit on the front of my card so I selected a sentiment from another Stamping Bella set that went well. I grabbed four different colors of matching cardstock and stamped the sentiment on each color in versamark ink and then heat set it with white embossing powder. Next I cut up each sentiment and decided which combination I liked best. I then adhered those down slightly slanting each one for some added interest.
Now it was time for some sparkle! I had to add stickles to the pinata. Next I applied some irRESISTible Pico Embellisher in Shimmer to her crown and shoes and the pinata's saddle. This is similar to Glossy Accents except it has a little shimmer to it and dries a bit quicker. For the finishing touch, I added a little flower embellishment to the center of the flower that's holding the pinata.
Here's a closer look at the card and also a video of it in action.
