Santa Slider

This week at Papertrey Ink, Lizzie Jones had a real challenge for us...to make a color slider card.  I have seen these magical wonders before, but had never tried one until watching Lizzie's awesome video tutorial here.  It was still a bit tricky (even though Lizzie made it look SO EASY! :), but I am glad I persevered!

Lizzie reminded us that these are great cards for kids...and that got me thinking about the most magical guy of all...Santa!


Here is one of my favorite Santa images of all time from PTI's "Believe" set.  The black and white patterned paper has verses from the "Twelve Days of Christmas" on it, and I thought it would make the sudden color pop even more surprising.



I made the slider tab with the Pocket Card die, and just partially cut it with my Cuttlebug so that I would have the fun tab at the top. I covered the hole with a circle and star.   I thought adding those glossy "Macy's" stars and the sentiment "Believe" would be perfect for a card that inspires wonder :). 


It was fun to color with my Copics, I haven't done that in awhile!  Thanks so much to Lizzie for the challenge, it was fun celebrating Christmas in July :)!

Kelly, this turned out wonderful!! This is also one of my favorite Santas and I was going to use it for the MIM but switched stamps after seeing yours.
