Slider Card (1 Background - 2 CAS Cards)


Warm welcome to my new followers, it's great to have you here! Big hugs to my loyal blog buddies, I will be in touch soon! x

I have two cards to show you today. What they have in common is that they are both made using one background created using my Tie Dye Technique. They are both CAS cards, but both have a different element of fun to them. I will post about them separately though so I can enter them into some challenges too.

This is the background...

...which I dry embossed using my Sizzix embossing folder, I inked the whole surface using my VersaMark & heat embossed using a clear powder... three of four times. Whilst it was still wet I added an ultra-fine iridescent glitter over the top. I love how the clear embossing powder brought up the brightness of the Dylusions inks! So pretty! I cut this background in two halves... one for each card...

The first was used for my CAS slider card...

Cool, right? :) It is very CAS yet pretty and fun too! What a little surprise... 'just for you' aaaaah.... :)

I hope you like my first card! Feel free to let me know your thoughts!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
