Make It Monday #293 - Color Slider Cards

It's a new week and that means, there's a new Make It Monday Challenge over at Papertrey Ink. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to play along but I was struck with an idea this morning and just had to give it a go.

I have several family birthdays this month and I like to make individual cards for family members. I thought this technique would be a fun idea for a card for a certain someone. I want to keep it a surprise though. :) 

I stamped the sunflower on a piece of white card stock and also on the clear card stock. I colored in the one on the white card stock using Copics. I decided I wanted to go with a kraft card base this time... it's just been awhile and I thought it would go with the color combo for the sunflower. I sort of followed the directions from the MIM video. I had to make some adjustments since I didn't have all the items that Lizzie used for her card. 

I added some patterned paper from the Ripe Avocado pattern pack to a kraft card base. I also added a scalloped Ripe Avocado strip with a 1/8" strip of Bright Buttercup card stock. I used a die (not sure which one) to cut the top of the pull out piece. I also hand wrote 'Pull Here' because I just didn't have a stamp for that... shocker. This card was difficult to photograph so I hope it doesn't 
seem to blurry to you.

Here are the products I used for this card:
Stamps: Botanical Blocks (PTI)
Tools: Stitched Rectangle Stacklets (TE), Window punch (retired SU!)

 I'd love to hear what you thought of my creations.
Thanks for stopping by!

See ya next time.
