I created this card for my 6 year old’s classmate who will have a magician themed birthday party. I browsed through the Cricut images in Cricut Design Space. Both my images are from the Cricut Create A Critter cartridge. The hat is a part of a caterpillar image. To remove the caterpillar, I ungrouped the set image and hid the caterpillar by clicking the eye. A diagonal line on the eye means that that cut is hidden and would not be cut. I apologize for I cannot give you the measurements of how these images were cut. I cut it several times until I came up with the right finished piece.
I spritzed the hat with pearlized water. I set this aside to dry. I stamped the hat trim with a sentiment from Li’l Inker Designs Modern Mandala stamp set. I heat embossed the sentiment using Wow! Silver Pearl embossing powder. To personalized the card, I die cut the celebrant’s name using Lawn Fawn Cole’s Alphabet die. I die cut this on silver glittered cardstock and die cut it 3 more times using white cardstock. I adhered the letters on top of each other to create a chipboard-like embellishment.
The bunny is a triple layered cut. I adhered the layers on top of each other. The rabbit whiskers are very thin, and didn’t come layered. I am amazed that the Cricut Explore was able to cut it. To make the whiskers sturdy, I applied some Tim Holtz Distress Matte Collage Medium on its back, and allowed it to dry.
To create the slider mechanism, I die cut a white cardstock using Lawn Fawn Stitched Square die. I partially die cut the Lawn Fawn Slide On Over die. If your slider opening is longer than you need, just adhere a cardstock across the area where you want the sliding element to stop. I adhered a small fun foam to the back of the bunny die cut through the slider window. Once this has dried, I adhered a strip of cardstock to this fun foam, sandwiching the slider cardstock in between the bunny die cut and this pull tab. To guide the pull tab, I added adhesive foam to each side of the pull tab. I added adhesive foam to the edges of this panel as well. I adhered this to a 4 ¼” x 4 ¼” side folding white note card.
I adhered the hat in front of the bunny using adhesive foam making sure it is not on the way of the sliding mechanism. Then I adhered the hat trim and the letters. I adhered star sequins for additional embellishment.
It would have been nice if all the bunny is hidden but with the bunny ears showing, it adds a playful element to the card. I wrote pull on the top of the tab to give the recipient an idea that this is an interactive card.
Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed & brilliant day!
