The projects are all amazing today… who am I kidding, I’m always in awe of what these girls come up with! I hope you get a chance to hop through them all! You can hop through like usual by clicking the button at the bottom of the page to move on to Becky’s page next.
In case you’re starting here, I’ll start you off with my Around the World card. I love combining fun techniques. Inspired by Shelli’s segment at convention that showcased cards with movement as well as the trend of incorporating acetate in card design, I knew right away that I wanted to combine the two with the Around the World stamp set. This idea came together in my head while we were away on vacation so I was happy that when I put it to paper, it came out like it had in my head.. I love when that happens and let me tell you, it does NOT always work out that way! Here it is!
This stamp set has a lot of fun elements and before adding the road sign, the card was missing a pop of color so added the sign in!
I added in the World Map background to the inside of the card to pull it all together.
Here’s are some tips to help you get that curved slider slot:
The slot for the airplane to fly/move through is cut with the Circle Collection Framelits. To cut just a portion of the circle so that the airplane stayed at the top of the globe, I placed the top cutting pad only as far over the Framelits (2 sizes) as I wanted it to cut—that way it didn’t cut the entire circle out. Imagine the different paths your slider cards can take by using Framelits to cut the opening. Just be sure to keep a good portion of the shape intact so it’s just an opening and not a fully cut out shape. Want a photo of how this is done? Post a comment to let me know that you’re interested in seeing it and I’ll be sure to get back to my big shot to take a photo or two to demonstrate how I did this!
I had fun with this card.. and perhaps a little too much fun after it was all complete sliding that airplane back and forth ‘
