Perfect Together Anniversary Slider Card
This interactive card has a cute couple inside that comes together for a kiss and hug when the card is opened I made this card for my husband for our 30th wedding anniversary.
I had seen a card with a similar sliding element online a while ago and searched high and low for a video tutorial on how to make one. I finally found one, but there seemed to be an error with the measurements because the pieces did not fit properly and the card would not open all the way. (Maybe it was me!) Anyway, I took the general concepts from the video and got to work trying to figure it out. After going through quite a bit of paper, I came up with something that finally worked for me. (HERE is a tutorial on how I made mine.)
The man and woman die cuts were adapted from an image I found online that I “traced” and cut with my Silhouette software and die cutting machine. I cut several of each and layered them to make them thicker.
The black die cut frame on the card front was made with a silhouette file called “you and me” by Rhonna Farrer (design id #173722) that I purchased in the Silhouette store. The file contains the words, and I sized and welded it to the frame I created. The Love Word paper is by The Paper Studio. I covered it with a piece of vellum so it wasn’t so dark and busy behind my die cut frame. The “perfect together” on the inside was also created and cut with my silhouette.
The anniversary stamp was from the “Lacy Borders” set (retired?) from Gina K Designs.
Thanks for checking out my card project!
