I spent a fair amount of time the last 2 weeks making interactive cards for the purpose of reviewing Interactive Cards, edited by Tanya Fox. I'll be showing the cards I made and when I'm done that, posting my thoughts on the book.
There are several types of sliders taught in the book, and I did two of them. Today I'll show the first. To the right is the card I worked from.
My idea with this review was to learn the techniques, but also to see how easy the ideas are to modify so as to let the card crafter's own inspiration shine through, rather than to simply reproduce the cards in the book.
This is the card I made. I won't explain the technique (that's what the book is for). I found making this card pretty easy, it works well, looks great and, I imagine, would be a lot of fun to receive. The slider is the bug, activated by pulling the ribbon up and down.
I didn't have a bug stamp so I drew one, coloured it in and fussy cut it out. There is red glitter glue on the 'hair' ends, and mod podge over the eyes.
