Several years ago my stamping friend Eva showed me how to make this kind of card. It's a little more complicated but fun! I don't really know the name so I call it a "slider/easel" card. If anyone else knows the name, I'd be happy to learn !
The little girl is from The Angel Company's new Wonder and Joy set. The patterned paper, cardstock and hardware is from the Mia's Cottage SWIC collection. I colored the image using Prismacolor pencils and oderless mineral spirits using blending stumps. Both sentiments are from Little Cupcake, and all stamping is done in Palettel Noir ink. The white cardstock is, of course, TAC's ultrasmooth.

So...to keep my ladies happy, I planned an entire card class for interactive cards. I'll be showing you each one over the next several days.

It's kinda hard to tell, but there are Stickles in the middle of the flower and Stardust Glitter pen on her hair bows.

I had used the card in my January class an posted it (with details) HERE. For the contest, I used some of my favorite portraits of my daughter when she was 4. (I called TAC first to make sure that a professional portrait wouldn't disqualify me as it would if I were sending it in for catalogue publication!) It's probably just as well that I didn't win, because I realized that having it on the TAC website would go against my husband's thing about having pix of our kids on the internet...

When I saw "Oh Baby!" I knew I wanted to scrap a page of our pastor's new "baby"--their 17 yr. old son who just arrived from Haiti. I like how the page turned out even though I didn't win.

My post includes a card that was inspired by fellow Angel Heather for her weekly sketch. You can see hers here and notice how I adapted it.
Mine uses 2 shades from the Bazzill Mono Greens Cardstock as well as Catelynn paper and white ultrasmooth. I used a Scor-Bug with the Scor-Pal to get great texture. I distressed the edges of the patterned paper with scissors (I miss our retired distressor!), stamped the image from Dear Friend in Burnt Umber Palette ink and colored with Skin Tone Pencils, Prismacolor pencils and oderless mineral spirits. The button is from Lemonade Blossoms and Buttons, tied with Tan Scrapper's Floss.
This card was one of the projects from my One SpecTACular Night on Feb. 5. We had 13 gals there, ready to create, eat and win prizes. It was lots of fun and Connie won the big prize--a $35 shopping spree! She says she never wings--but not any more! ;-)
Now be sure to visit all the other Angels' blogs so you can GO GREEN!
