PTI February Blog Hop Challenge

This month, PTI has challenged their fans to make an interactive card. Luckily my Movers & Shakers dies arrived in the mail, so I was able to take them for a test drive. Note to self - must get 1/8" score-tape (1/4" is just too wide for use with the Slider dies).

I knew exactly what I wanted to use the slider dies for as soon as I saw them ... to make cute birthday tags for the numerous parties my DDs get invited to. Here is my first attempt:

Open Slider View:

There was a bit of a learning curve for me with the slider setup. Things I can improve upon, as far as the construction aspect goes anyway. I really like the concept, but need to figure out how to modify this to be able to hang it from a gift bag. It should be a blast experimenting! My DDs are even excited to get involved!

Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Beautiful Butterflies, Movers & Shakers Sentiments, 2011 Birthday Tags
Ink: Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise, Hawaiian Shores, Black (momento)
Dies: Movers & Shakers: Sliders, Edgers #3
Card Stock: Stampers Select White, Harvest Gold, Hawaiian Shores
Other: Copic markers, rhinestones (Michaels), Stickles (Ranger), glossy accents (Plaid, Royal Coat), scallop and circle punches (Marvy Uchida)

Thanks ever so much for stopping by today!
