Hi everyone, this year I’m kick-starting my Easter series with these fun Slide & Hide cards.
These require no dies and are an alternative to the double slider cards I shared some years ago here.
I’ve mixed all sorts in this card, different Made To Surprise collections and easter egg stamps from some older sets I had, and all finished with my Chunky Alphabet dies.
I made the pink version first during a Facebook Live and we were saying how this would look good as a Christmas card with Santa flying over the roof tops or for Halloween with some spiders popping out from the bottom.
I cut the rolling hills freehand and layered them using foam so I could pop the cute animals behind them.
