Good morning peeps! Oh, look! Another Hey, Chick card! Ahhhhh but there is a method to my madness! My Tasty Truck slider card was an internet sensation. Hahahaha. Not in the real world, just mine! There was some interest in learning how I made the truck slide across my card. I thought I’d use the Hey, Chick stamp set and take a few process pics so that you could see the making of the mechanism.
I happened to use the retired word window punch, but the Classic Label Punch (#141491) is ideal!
Hopefully the above visual reference helps in the making of the element needed to slide. Think of it as a penny slider card without the spin 🙂
adhere your moving element, (chick ) to one flat side of the circle. Insert the back half of circle into the punched channel and adhere other side of circle to the smaller panel. Phew, wish I could do videos, so much easier to explain while you watch. Hopefully you can “see” it once you have your pieces in hand 🙂
I thought this chick appeared to be looking over her shoulder and thought, hey, this is the look when someone startles you, so I added PSST stamped with the Labeler Alphabet (#141936) The “nest” she is sitting on are of the Crazy Chicks stamped images, I just fussy cut the hair and positioned it to look like a nest. Cute?
So, what happens when you get startled? You jump!
But not only did she jump, so did all the eggs in her nest! I crack myself up. Pun intended 🙂
The sentiment on the inside is the “have a happy day” from the same stamp set. I hope this little tutorial helps you to try your own hand at the slider card! I LOVE this card, its too cute and of course silly!!!!!
