About two months ago, I watched a YouTube video in which someone made a card using a hillside border die to create a tree truck. What a brilliant idea! This is the card I made using the same idea. It is also a slider card.
Front of Card
Inside of Card
Size: Vertical top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I began this card by stamping and coloring the piñata and candy images. I used Prismacolor pencils. I used the matching dies to cut everything out.
Next, I created the white card base. I knew I wanted to decorate the inside of the card, so I created the inside of the card first. I stamped the ending of the sentiment and the confetti pieces in a variety of inks that matched my coloring. I adhered the candy pieces with liquid glue and set the whole thing aside to dry.
While the inside of the card was drying, I worked on the slider panel for the front of the card. I die cut a stitched rectangle from some light blue, green, and Kraft card stocks. I used a simple stitched hill side border to create a tree trunk from the Kraft panel. I stamped it with a wood grain patter also. I used a grassy border to create two layers of grass form the green panel. I adhered the taller green grass layer to the light blue panel. Next, I adhered the Kraft tree trunk and then I adhered the last green grass layer. I stamped the sentiment.
Using a hole punch and kraft knife to create a slider track. It is not the smoothest cut but it works. I added some foam tape to the back of the panel, making sure to leave space around the slider track. I adhere some twine and a small foam dot to the back of the piñata. I pushed the foam dot through the slider track and adhered it to a dime. I added a scrap of light blue card stock behind the slider track to help it blend in. I adhered the other end of the twine to the top of the panel, making sure that the piñata can freely move along the track. Lastly, I adhered the panel to the card base.
