Quirky Crafts 2011: Challenge 10 - Pop up slider window card thingy, for the men

Diane does like to challenge you, and us on the Design Team, this type of card was definitely a first for at least two of us who were unable to follow the template until one of the team found a YouTube video that made it look oh so easy!

So this is my first attempt, and I will be making these again as I do like this sort of card. I used Dino and Just a Note images provided by our sponsor Stitchy Bear. I love Dino though my colouring isn't too good, I will try again to do better. I coloured him with Promarkers, the tips are not fine enough for the fine detail - for me at least. Trias work better for me, but I have more colours in Promarkers.
I found a bone stamp to stamp the edges, it is an Inkadinkado Dog stamp set. I doodled some extra words onto the inner part.

I cut Dino out with a Nestie Large Rectangle, then cut a larger mat with my trimmer. I used the Nestie as a template to mark the opening to be cut too. I used the smallest two circle dies, again Nesties, to cut the grommit, and to notch the top of the card which needed two passes as this card stock is quite thick.

I cut out the Just a Note image with the same large rectangle die as I knew it would fit the opening perfectly, it was a bit fiddly sticking it in to the fully assembled card - maybe I should have stuck it in at an earlier stage.

I finally added dad using a cut and emboss alphabet by Sizzix, you can't see what it says in the photo, I should have used card I could sand for a contrast. I also added some fibres from my stash, and punched a small arrow with an Xcut punch and wrote Pull on it.

The winner of this challenge over will win a voucher to spend on Stitchy Bear digital stamps. You can either have a go at this type of card or you can make a 3d project for a man or Father's day. So hop on over to Quirky Crafts and join in, you have to be in it to win it!
