A Slider Card?

I don't know what this kind of a card is called.  I saw it originally HERE last year.  It was made to hold giftcards and I really liked the idea of how the GC would slide out.  It is similar to the one Cheryl made and blogged about HERE.  That tutorial was from Dandelion Designs.  Anyway, I couldn't find any directions on how to make it so I just stared at the pictures on the blog until I got the general idea.  So I altered the dimensions of the card to hold the tattoos above instead of a GC.

I made it for my older son last Halloween so that when you open the flap the tattoo would slide out.  The tattoo was held together by a band that said "Happy Halloween."  Bought a whole bunch of these at Walmart.

I thought I'd make a couple more this year.  I blurred out the names of the kids so they can be surprised if their Mommy happens to be reading this post.  Paper is from Bo Bunny.

I started with a 4.25 x 11 inch piece of cardstock and scored it at 2.5 and 7.5 inches from the left.

I cut a smaller piece 4.25 x 5 inches and scored that at 2 inches from the left.

I cut about 3/8 inch off the sides up to the score line to make like a "T" shape.

Tape the top rectangle of the smaller piece onto the inside of the larger one as shown above.  I also put a small purple brad on each side to close the bottom flap over the smaller piece of cardstock.  I guess you could also just tape it down.  I covered the ends of the brads on the reverse side with a stripof cardstock too so it wouldn't spin around so much.

Tape the tattoo on the small piece of cardstock so that when you open and close the top flap the tattoo slides in and out.

Here is another view of the card.

These were fairly quick to make since I had the one from last year to measure.  It's a good thing my son keeps everything.  It is easy to alter too for whatever you want to place inside and can be embellished how ever you want.  I didn't do any stamping or coloring, just cut out the cute monsters that came in this Halloween line from Bo Bunny.  I bought them on sale at Ben Franklin.  Too cute!

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!

lots and lots of tags!

Hi!  I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.

These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love this set.  It is so cute and funny!

Here is the back of the tags.  I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children.  They would think the tags are so funny!

Here are the polar bear tags.  I love this polar bear.  His expression is so cute!

This is the back of the polar bears.

I also made more of the tags I had made last year.  So these are all listed in my shop now.  I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year.  I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet!  Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use.  Although sometimes that is so difficult!  I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown.  I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…
