Hi there stampers! I have yet another card using the super fun bundle called Always an Adventure and the color palette is for this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge #397. I just can’t stop creating with this great stamp set and matching framelits. I needed to make my dad a father’s day card so I decided to use the same theme I used for my husband’s but make it an interactive card. How fun are interactive cards anyway?!?! So much fun! If you missed the card I made for my husband, you can see it HERE.
I decided to build another scene using the Always an Adventure stamp set and coordinating framelits called Outdoor Adventure. I created a top folding A2 card base from some thick whisper white cardstock. I then cut out the mountains from a piece of crumb cake cardstock and the mountain die fits perfectly across a standard card front on the shorter side – 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
I then cut the mountain snow tops out of some whisper white cardstock and adhered those to the tops of the mountains using some Tombow Multipurpose glue. I then grabbed two pieces of mossy meadow cardstock and used my grid mat to line the tree line die up straight to cut across both pieces of the mossy meadow. I off set the die on one piece so that the trees did not line up perfectly and just moved the die along the top piece of the cardstock to get the cut out across the entire top edge.
I adhered the first mossy meadow tree line piece to the mountain scene so that I could figure out where I wanted the slider piece to be. I lined up the sentiment on the bottom and made sure I gave myself enough space to add the slider window and the cute bear.
I cut the second piece of mossy meadow down to the size I needed for my card. I pulled out my MISTI tool to stamp the sentiment so that I got perfect placement and to make sure I stamped my sentiment in a straight line. The sentiment is from the May Paper Pumpkin kit. I stamped the sentiment in some Versamark ink and then heat embossed that using white embossing powder. I then lined up my slider die from Lawn Fawn to be in the middle above my sentiment with enough room for the bear to slide without covering up the sentiment. I ran that through my big shot.
I put three layers of foam adhesive on the back of the slider piece making sure to not put the adhesive too close the slider window so that the bear was free to slide back and forth. For the bear, I stamped him in soft suede on some whisper white and cut him out using the coordinating die. I then used three layers of dimensionals on the back of the bear and slid the dimensionals through the slider window and adhered them to a button. This creates the slider piece so that the button and bear cut out sandwich the dimensionals that run along the slider window. Boy I hope that makes sense.
I then adhered the slider piece onto the card front making sure to line up the tree on the edge of the card. I then stamped the hot air balloon in some hello honey ink and cut that out using the matching die. I used the cloud dies from that same framelit set to cut out two clouds that I sponged with some lost lagoon ink and adhered to the card using foam adhesive. And that finished the card.
Here is a video of the card in action:
I am so glad I decided to purchase this bundle last minute because I sure have enjoyed creating with it! I think both my dad and husband will be happy with their cards.
