I’m currently loving the Waffle Flower Cheers stamp set! It’s the perfect summer birthday stamp set! Anyways, it’s one of my best friend’s birthdays so I wanted to make her an awesome card! This is what I came up with:
I haven’t made a slider card for a while because I ration my pennies. I’m in Canada and Canada got rid of pennies back in 2013 so I occasionally get some from relatives that visit from the USA. I could use a washer from the hardware store but I find that the weight of the penny makes slider cards slide better.
Anyways, I stamped the cat image out with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and coloured it with the following Copic Markers: R29, R35, R17, R20, YR68, YR16, YR02, Y08, Y06, Y02, YG09, YG06, YG03, B000, V06, V04, V01, E37, E33, E31, T7, T5, and T3. I used a Copic Multiliner to add some details to the cocktail glass and a White Sakura Gelly Roll Pen as highlights to the sunglasses.
I die cut Waffle Flower’s Rainbow Die out of white cardstock and coloured it with the same markers I used to colour the floatation device and then applied some Clear Wink of Stella. Once I was done that, I assembled the rainbow and adhered it to a piece of scrap paper and cut it out. I used Glossy Accents on each colour of the rainbow and on the floatation device and I set them aside to dry.
I die cut waves using Lawn Fawn stitched Wave Borders out of white cardstock and then for my front panel wave, I used Lawn Fawn’s Slide On Over Dies to cut a sliding channel. I also used Lawn Fawn’s Puffy Cloud Borders (white cardstock) and Mama Elephant’s Landscape Trio (vellum) to create a cloud border in the distance.
The waves were ink blended using Distress Inks Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, and Evergreen Bough and sprayed with Pearl Perfect Pearls.
For my background card front panel, I used MFT’s Radiating Rays Stencil and ink blended using Distress Oxide inks Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin, and Salty Ocean.
The front sentiment, “Cheers!”, was stamped with Versafine and heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.
I glued down my layers and then popped up my front wave with a double layer of 3M foam tape providing adequate space for the cat to slide. The cat was adhered to a penny with a double piece of 3M foam tape. I found that while I was sliding it, the cat’s head would catch on the back wave, so I added another piece of 3M foam tape to the cat’s head. I didn’t release the backing paper so the image could still move freely and provided enough elevation that it wouldn’t get caught on the wave. “Cheers!”, was also adhered to the card with 3M foam tape. I adhered my card front onto an aqua/teal coloured card base. I figured the front of the card would be a bit heavier with all the layers of cardstock and the penny, so I used my Scotch ATG Tape Glider because it’s a great super strong adhesive.
Since this was also a birthday card for my friend, I did finish the inside but I forgot to take a picture before I gave it away since finishing the insides of cards isn’t a norm for me >_<. I die cut the stitched rectangle from Mama Elephant's Basic Set (white cardstock) and cut out a matte for it that was 5" x 3 3/4" (dark blue/green card stock). I stamped the sentiment, "Wishing you and amazing day", from Mama Elephant's Picnic With Friends Stamp set in Versafine Ink and heat embossed with Clear Gloss. I finished the inside by stamping the same cat image as the front, in the bottom right corner in Mama Elephant Moonlight Ink.
You can check it out in action below. I should have turned on another light when I filmed but I didn't notice how dark the video was until after I gave it away. 😦

That finishes up my card, I hope you guys liked it!
