Ribbon Slider Card using a Gift Card Die

Hello! I created this interactive card using a die from Honey Bee which is intended for gift cards. I thought of why not extending the purpose of the die to creating something else. That's why I came up with this. Thanks to Jennifer McGuire's tutorial on Ribbon Slider Cards. I was able to use her technique with the die, thus, coming up with this interactive card.

I am using a Crate Paper Hello Love collection for this card. I die cut the base (which is the box, if it was a present), and adhered the two sides to create the pocket of the slider card. I die cut the cover of the present using another patterned paper. For the slider feature, I used the die that cuts out the solid part of the gift card holder. I followed Jennifer McGuire's tutorial on where to punch the hole up to threading the ribbon through the hole. I skipped the step of the bow. Instead, I snipped off the edge of the bow and adhered it to the inside of the present box cover, together with the sliding panel.  

To embellish the front of the slider card, I die cut a heart using the largest heart die from Lawn Fawn Stitched Heart Stackables die set. I die cut a pink ombre patterned paper from the same collection. 

I stamped the sentiment on the heart using Versafine Onyx Black ink. The stamps for the sentiment are from Honey Bee Bless Your Heart stamp set. I used a silver gel pen to trace the word 'Bless' for a simple embellishment.

For the slider sentiment, I mixed several stamps to create a customized message. The stamps I used are from Honey Bee Bless Your Heart stamp set, Clearly Besotted Little Elves stamp set (you don't have to limit Christmas-themed stamps to Christmas only), and Simon Says Stamp Fluttering By stamp set.

To let the recipient know that this is an interactive card, I stamped 'pull' to the box cover using Martha Stewart Custom Stamp Setting Kit and a light gray ink. I cut off the excess of the box cover to make it the same width as the box.

I am going to send this to my son in the Army who is scheduled to be deployed to South Korea on February 10. 

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
