TCP Flying By!

Hello Everyone!  OK....just so you know, I think this is my FAV card I made for this release!  :)  

It is new from The Cat’s Pajamas and will be released....tomorrow!  YAY!

If you’ve been following the release you know that Alma has designed a fabulous die set that makes slider cards easy as pie, today I created a slider with Sprinkles the Cat and it’s adorable!    

First, here’s a closeup of the front of the card.  I used the fun and funky Cut Ups Die - Framed Up 2 to create the spot for Sprinkles the Aviator using just the frame of the die and then adding vellum to the inside of the frame to give it some structure and to give it that “muted-sky” look.  The fun and funky clouds are stamped, cut out and popped up on the design.  Love how they look.  The adorable paper is Carta Bella Rough and Tumble.  

Now here’s the fun part - the slider!  

The die is so easy to use and it gives such a fun effect to have an interactive element on your card.  Sprinkles lifts up for takeoff to reveal a fun design inside the slider.  

And here you can see it closeup, the red tab, part of the die has “pull” embossed into the design, so you don’t have to sit there and instruct your card recipient :)  That tab in the die serves a double purpose because it’s what grounds your slider in the groove too!  (As you can see with the little bit of red behind the airplane).  So smart.  And isn’t that the cutest sentiment too? 

And the Release Party is HERE!  Come on by splitcoaststampers tonight and pop into The Cat’s Pajamas Forum!!
