My Sliding Santa Card

Hello Crafty Friends! It’s Laurie here! I am sharing My Sliding Santa Card for Christmas in July and as my Design Team Inspiration Card for Paper Nest Dolls using the Vacation Santa Set. There are 7 stamps, which include Surfer Santa, Ice-cream Santa, Santa with Reindeer Floatie, Santa & Mrs. Claus, Palm Tree and Flamingo & Gifts, that come in both rubber and digital stamps. I made a card with Ice-cream Santa from this set as well and will include a link to it at the end of this post.

The Details of My Card

For my card, I decided to create fun interactive slider card using Santa with Reindeer Floatie. I had so much fun colouring this cutie with my Copic markers! I added some white Gelly Roll Pen to his floatie and Rudolph’s nose to give them a shine.

Next, I wanted to see the different layers of the papers behind him. So, I used two different slimline die sets. I picked a water-like paper for the slider piece as if he is going down a river twirling around like at one of those amusement parks. Lol! I kept the cut-out piece from the slider die and glued it through the hole onto the layer below it so that you couldn’t see the orange layer below. This added to my pool like feel.

I used some slider discs to create my slider, but in the past, I have also used pennies. I made sure that my dimensionals were round so that I could get him spinning around.

I decorated my card using some Christmas Chit Chat pieces. I popped up the sentiment ones making sure that my Santa would not get caught on them. A couple of matching glitter dots were added to add some sparkle.
