Paper Plane Fun Card Set (IC #1)

Hello everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you this Paper Plane Fun Card Set. :o)

I made this Interactive Card (IC) Set of SLIDER SPINNER CARDS for my Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces 2019 personal challenge. If you want to find out more about it, just follow the link provided. :o) 

This is a first type of IC I made for my challenge. I made 15 different types of interactive cards during Pisces period, which was my personal challenge. As I don't have a lot of die-cuts, I used all possible tools I have, combined this and that, planned, sketched... I completed my challenge, achieved my goals and had a lot of fun. I wrote a short review about the challenge here.

I colored images during Kathy's Racoosin 12th 30 Day Coloring Challenge. You can see all my coloring samples during the challenge here.

How I made this card set...

To make this card set I used super cute paper planes from Lawn Fawn 'Flying By' stamp set and a sentiment form Create a Smile 'Uplifitng' stamp set. :o)

I stamped paper planes on a watercolor paper and watercolored them using a Distress Ink Hickory Smoke. After drying, I fussy cut paper planes and traced their edges with black marker.

I stamped more paper planes on a white cardstock paper, colored them with black marker and fussy cut them, this time leaving white thin border around paper planes.

Then I glued all images together. I glued watercolored paper planes over black colored paper planes. I did this because watercolor paper I use is thin and I needed thicker images. :o)

I ink blended clouds through a cloud stencil I made by myself (how, I described here) on the white cardstock paper A5 size. After drying, I die cut circles in the stenciled paper using My Favorite Things, Die-namics Wonky Stitched Circle STAX.

For card bases, I cut two circles for each card in the white cardstock paper using EK Success Circle Cutter and glued two circles together on top.

I stamped the sentiment on each cloud background circle panel.

As I don't have slider die-cuts, I used tools I have to create slider opening. I die cut two tiny circles on the cloud panel (1). Then I cut two lines using a kraft knife and ruler from one to another circle (2) and got slider opening (3). I repeated same on two other panels.

For a slider mechanism, I used plastic buttons and plastic letter beads I have in my stash for a while. I glued one bead on one button and left all dry for one hour. I didn't use any special glue. I used UHU all purpose liquid glue.

With all parts ready, I assembled cards. I glued 3-D foams on the cloud panel, placed the slider mechanism on the card base and glued the panel on the card base. I repeated same on all cards.

Tips: the slider mechanism has to be slightly thicker than 3-D foams, it has to peek out through the slider opening and it has to move freely. 3-D foams shouldn't be glued closely to the cut opening.

Lastly, I glued paper planes on slider mechanism and my card set was finished. :o)

I love how these mini circle slider spinner cards turned out. So FUN!!! Here is a short video. :o)
